IEC 61508 is a series of standards published by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) for the development of electrical, electronic and programmable electronic systems that perform safety functions in a wide variety of applications in robotics, drive technology and many other areas. In order to be able to cover this enormous diversity of safety applications, Brinkmann Electronic Berlin GmbH, a young service company for electronics and embedded software development, uses an integrative approach. The bel.guard technology platform, recently presented at HANNOVER MESSE 2022, is a combined solution consisting of software, hardware and documentation that can be customised to customer requirements through services.

In particular, its wide-ranging modular structure, based on separate hardware and software platforms, is designed to enable bel.guard to quickly and easily integrate safety functions for motion monitoring into almost any conceivable application. Thus bel.guard provides, among other things, the technical prerequisites for stopping machines in a safety-oriented manner in the event of danger. However, the entire range of possibilities, which is not least due to Brinkmann's comprehensive range of services, is much broader.
