Nexen Group, Inc. now offers three of its brakes products with functional safety certification under its NexSafe trademark name.
NexSafe functional safety certified rod locks, rail brakes and servomotor brakes can be used for machine operations such as holding, emergency stopping or positioning. They are ideal for applications where safety is a priority. Nexen’s NexSafe rail brakes, servomotor brakes and rod locks were the first products in North America to earn the Functional Safety Mark from Intertek.
Functional safety reduces the risk of injury posed by the use of machinery. It requires the design and fabrication of protective features responding to human errors, hardware failures, operational or environmental stress. NexSafe functional safety certified brakes provide a verified, reliable solution that machine builders can depend on. With ISO 13849-1 Functional Safety Certification, NexSafe rod locks, rail brakes and servomotor brakes are ideal for operations such as holding, emergency stopping or positioning. Optional operating mode sensors further ensure NexSafe products are a fit for safety channels designed for ISO 13849-1 categories B through 4 and performance levels PLa through PLe. In addition, NexSafe brakes are certified to meet IEC 61508, ISO 12100, ISO 13850, and ISO 4414 standards.
