|You may recall reading in
our May and June newsletters about two books written by
Robin J Carver of Health & Safety Compliance
Engineering. The first was a compilation of data
relating to machinery safety standards, while the second
explained CE Marking. And now there is a third:
'Decoding EN ISO 13849' is written for designers and
manufacturers of machines, machine assemblies and
integrated machine systems. It includes useful sections
that are targeted specifically at machine designers,
control system designers and validators, making it
crystal clear who is responsible for what. If you are
involved in any way with safety-related control systems
that need to comply with EN ISO 13849, find out more
about the book here.
This month's newsletter is another long one, so please
take a minute to scroll down and find the items of
interest to you. We have machinery safety standards,
high-reliability inverter drives, machine vision cameras
with integrated deep-earning, plus training courses and
a broad spectrum of new products that offer real
benefits to machine builders, system integrators and end
