EGS(H) 41 with SIL certification

Our EGS(H) 41 series is certified for use in safety related applications up to SIL 2 to IEC 61508 and PL d to DIN EN ISO 13849; it enables you to reliably monitor a variety of operating statuses such as "safe standstill", "reliable slip monitoring", "safety limited speed" as well as "when carrying out maintenance work on live systems and components".

 

Systems operators are required to observe increased safety regulations with regard to critical operating statuses. ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe AG is leading the way and has installed the overspeed switch EGS®(H) 41 from Johannes Huebner Giessen.

With an integrated sensor (speed measurement), logic circuitry (speed evaluation) and actuator (speed switch) devices from our series EGS®(H) 41 function as a safety system. Safe operating statuses are monitored continuously utilizing  integrated  diagnostics functions. It is possible to log and export configuration parameters (such as switching points) as well as monitoring data (e.g., speed variations, circuit-breaker condition and so forth). In this combination, the EGS®(H) 41 series is the only range of products on the market anywhere in the world that is certified to Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 2 as well as up to Performance Level (PL) d.

Find out more about this in our Product flyer EGS®(H) 41.

 

When operating rolling mills it is imperative to adhere to the Machinery Directive, which includes fundamental safety requirements designed to protect personnel and avoid accidents.
