As one of the leading manufacturers of components and systems for electrical engineering and automation, Eaton is now offering easySafety for the safe monitoring of furnaces – also with TÜV approval. Machines and plants contain potentially dangerous motion sequences that require a technical solution to make them safe. Safety devices such as emergency-stop pushbuttons, guard doors, light curtains and operating elements for safe setting must be controlled and monitored, and the installation may have to be switched to a safe state. Safety-related monitoring is also required in furnaces. EN 50156 stipulates that the fuel supply must be shut off safely as soon as the safety criteria in the boiler plant responds. The easySafety control relay has now also been tested and approved by TÜV Rheinland for use in the safe monitoring of furnaces in accordance with EN 50156: easySafety thus enables users to implement a safety shut off of the fuel supply to furnaces up to safety integrity level SIL 3.
The new Eaton Catalogs App for smartphones and tablets includes the current Eaton Main Catalog, the brochure “From Lean Connectivity to Lean Automation” and the latest issues of the Eaton SOLUTIONS customer magazine.
