Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

1. Students will be acquainted with the risks resulting from the use of machinery. The clasiffication and the preventive measures will be shown as well. 2. Students will be able to describe the requirements of the standards EN 60204, EN 60439 and ISO 13849-1, it’s practical application in the electrical equipment of machines. 3. The ability of self – done conversion of risks of machinery into performance level PL and further into the destination of the category of safety-related part of a control system of the machine is the aim of this course.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs
Project work


Control system has substantive influence on safe operation of machines and apparatus. It must be designed and realised at the basis of actual degree of risk in accordance with technical standards and directions. After graduating, student will know operating features of individual safety elements and design safety control system with regard for classifying degrees of risk.

Compulsory literature:

- Standards and regulations - Lecture materials "Safety Technology of Machines"

Recommended literature:

- Lecture materials "Safety Technology of Machines"

Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester

• Short enter tests before starting of each laboratory measurement to examine of student readiness to make measurement • Reports from each measurement processed on the base of measured values from these measurements and their subsequent processing, completing and assessing. • Continuous verifying of student knowledge in the numerical exercises in a form of debate and inquiries to achieve student active participations in study process. Identify, deduce and search of problem solving and their interpretation by students. • Tests from numerical exercises, eventually from chosen theoretical circuits • Term work and projects on a given theme on the basis of selection, investigation, ordering and final compilation of facts and their processing into final form of given theme.
