Summary

Functional safety and Performance Levels are key elements behind the machine safety standard ISO 13849.

Being a global harmonized standard, it is accepted worldwide in designing the safety related parts of the control system of a machine. However, understanding the theory behind ISO 13849 and actually implementing it can be difficult.

Join Devin Murray from Schmersal as he provides an overview of what the ISO 13849 standard is, when and how to use it, how it relates to machine safety in the USA and a look at misconceptions surrounding the standard.
