Fluidsentry PBS Series Monitored Pneumatic Safety Valves

Pneumatic & Hydraulic Safety of Machinery

Pneumatic & hydraulic loads can be just as dangerous as electrically driven loads, so why should they have any less safety integrity?

We too often observe Safety of Machinery standards being erroneously applied solely to the electrical parts of safety related parts of control systems. However pneumatic and hydraulic loads can store dangerous energy which may be unexpectedly released if a failure to danger occurs. Failures within pneumatic and hydraulic systems have lead to injuries and fatalities. Accordingly pneumatic and hydraulic considerations are included in the requirements of safety related parts of controls systems in standards such as AS4024 Safety of Machinery.

If your machinery contains pneumatic and hydraulic loads, we encourage you to seek advice from a safety specialist with knowledge of safety related parts of fluid power control systems. Even better, Automation Systems and Controls offer this assistance with the further advantage of being able offer support in correct selection and implementation of both electrical and fluid power safety.

To provide for the highest levels of fluid power safety, Automation Systems and Controls product solutions are dedicated to the Fluidsentry range. Their product designs and reliability are well proven and industry leading. Fluidsentry products become the interface between your electrical and fluid power safety related parts of control systems and therefore are an integral part of our complete safety project and product offering.

Please find product data sheets in the adjacent product menu. Examples of electrical connection of Fluidsentry monitored valves with our Jokab Safety controllers can be found under 'Safety Control Circuits' in the additional adjacent services menu.

Please Note:

Automation Systems and Controls recommend the use of our programmable safety monitoring systems when interlocking monitored safety valves to Opto Electronic Safety Devices (e.g. Safety Light Curtains & Safety Area Scanners). This enables continuous monitoring of the safety valve stop time to be configured, ensuring it remains inside the time frame used within calculation of the Opto Electronic Safety Device safe distance.
