For any industrial application, the safety of employees and the general population is of major importance. NHP has a long history in the safety industry and can be a trusted destination for all your safety application needs.
Keeping up with relevant industry standards is a major part of this offering. AS4024.1-2006 continues to be the standard of choice for many machinery safety applications in Australia, however, recent changes in European Standards with the enforcement of the new Machinery Directive, 2006/42/EC (December, 2009) will enable machinery builders and System Integrators to include better diagnostic coverage, higher reliability and more functional safety into their solutions.
The standards EN ISO 13849-1 and AS 62061 both founded on the concept of reliable functional safety are better aligned to the new Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and NHP are able to provide a product range and that reflects this, NHP’s safety team can also assist with technical solutions and advice throughout all stages of the machinery safety lifecycle. As Standards Australia continue to develop AS4024.1-2006 (it is made up of 26 EU Standards) in due course EN ISO 13849 -1/2 could be adopted to replace chapters 1501(Design) & 1502 (Validation)
NHP offer a large variety of quality products that meet all relevant international standards, with products ranging from simple emergency stop switches, to light curtains, safety monitoring relays all the way up to fully integrated safety PLC systems.
