    Abstract

    The safety of an automated machine is depending on the control system, because systems are getting faster and more complex. More and more often the operator or driver is not able to control the system quick or well enough to guarantee alone the safety, but he needs the help of the control system. However, deficiencies or failures in the control system of a machine may lead to a dangerous loss of safety functions. Safety standards give a good basis to reach adequate safety level. However, it is often hard to adopt safety requirements and guidelines purely from standard text. Suitable, generic examples help to adopt the safety principles and they can be applied to designers own solutions. This text introduces an example library concerning safety related machine control systems. The examples are classified according to standard EN 954-1. PowerPoint animations based on examples were also created. Animation helps in understanding safety principles, but the reader needs to know circuit diagrams
