One of the biggest challenges of material handling industry is to ensure workers’ health and safety in safety-critical work environment. With our help, the prominent names of this industry have been safeguarding their workers while improving the efficiency and economy of their products. Following is an example of our services for the industry.

Control Systems for Material Handling

One of our successful projects included performing testing and validation of an integrated application designed to control systems for material handling operations. The challenge of this project was a broad product line with the single baseline architecture. We carried out the entire project according to the requirements of safety standard EN 954-1 and revised EN 13849-1. Among many unique features of the product line, a master and slave communication process and acknowledgement system was verified. Apart from functional tests, verification through test points on the PCB was performed. At the successful completion of the project we had conducted tests covering all approval requirements, provided safety agency approval support, and met the production deadlines to curtail the time to market.
