Tools to simplify the process of safety function design
FSDT is an ABB software for determining PL and SIL of safety functions and generating technical documentation. The tool helps simplifying the process of safety function design, verification and documentation. It supports the compliance of the requirements of both EN ISO 13849-1 and IEC 62061 as well as the European Machinery Directive. Please turn to your local ABB contact in order to purchase FSDT.
Another commonly used software tool for the calculation of PL according to EN ISO 13849-1 is SISTEMA, developed by IFA (The Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) in Germany. With SISTEMA it is possible to “build” safety functions, verify them and generate the technical documentation required. The tool is freeware and can be downloaded from the IFA website.
To simplify the use of FSDT and SISTEMA with our products we have created a library containing all of our HF-Starter dedicated for safety applications. Access here.
FSDT file for HF-Starter will be available in future.
