Our detailed report will provide you with:

the initial risk level
written recommendations for compliance
safeguarding and safety circuit requirements based on risk level
emergency stop requirements (if applicable)
a plan view drawing of the equipment identifying recommended protective measures
the estimated risk level achieved after all recommended safeguards are properly installed
an estimated cost to properly safeguard the machine(s) or process line(s) on a turn-key basis
Safety System Interface Engineering and Design
Omron STI will engineer the required safeguarding system based on our assessment. Our engineers will design control circuitry and a guarding strategy appropriate to the identified risk level.

This will include applicable interface schematics and a bill of materials. This offering works best when a facility has trained maintenance personnel that will be installing the safeguards.
