Banner SISTEMA Library: A Tool for the Easy Application of EN ISO 13849-1

Banner has established a SISTEMA library to help developers and testers of safety-related machine controls evaluate the overall safety in the context of ISO 13849-1. The library contains all Banner Safety Products that have been approved to have a Safety Integrity Level (SIL) and Performance Level (PL).

The values in the library for the individual products are:

  • Probability of Failure per hour (PFH) value
  • Performance Level (PL)
  • Safety Category (1-4)

A link to the manuals for each safety product has also been integrated.
