Once the safeguarding solution has been installed, and before releasing the equipment for production, MPSA conducts a systematic validation procedure to confirm that the safety system conforms to the defined design scope and that the risk is controlled.

System Validation

MPSA will generate a validation report to acknowledge that the required safety function conformance with ISO 13849 and meets all other relevant requirements. It is performed independently by a safety engineer who was not responsible for the design of the safety system.

The validation process can include the following:

  • A functional test of all safety components, including interlocks, safety light curtains, emergency stops, pilot devices, etc.
  • Introduction of faults to test dual-channel input circuits
  • Interruption of motors, pneumatic and hydraulic actuators, etc.
  • Faults in the output circuits by simulated conditions
  • Proper function and notification of bypass, safe speed, and standstill monitoring

Following the delivery of the completed validation report, the project manager will schedule a post-project review with the customer to discuss the project's level of success and identify areas of continuous improvement. In addition, you will receive a complete documentation package to help manage your change control requirements for Management of Change (MOC).
