The SinorixTM al-deco Plus fire protection system optimally manages both the primary risk (the probability of fire) and the secondary risk induced by the primary risk management system (CO2). This second aspect is relevant in the machines that require all operator to access the protected area, with the whole torso or with the whole person, for normal maintenance and / or set-up operations.
In these cases the extinguishing system must be shut down safely when the machine tool doors are open and the latter, on the other hand, must remain locked in the closed position after any extinguishing event. (according to EN ISO 19353-1: 2016).
Furthermore, in these cases, since there is a risk to the person of permanent and / or death damage, the legislation requires that the safety system be at least Cat 4 PL d according to EN ISO 13849_1: 2015 “Safety of machinery – Parts of control systems linked to security.
SIEMENS with the Sinorix™ protection system Al-Deco Plus is able to meet the highest requirements of the Machinery Directive 2006/42 / EC and is certified in Cat 4 PL e,
The SINORIX al-deco PLUS System equipped with Dual-Routing, combined with the use of redundant components and equipped with sophisticated self-monitoring logic, makes it possible to fully meet the requirements of the standard. This technology allows the safe operation of the machine tool.
Furthermore, the completely pneumatic detection and extinction line guarantees operation in all conditions, even in the absence of electrical power on the system power supply line.
|The safest object protection system for machine tools available on the market||Meets the highest safety requirements of the EU Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. This means that the machine tool cannot be operated until the system has been checked. The machine door is only unlocked if the extinguishing is deactivated.||100% people safe system|
|Direct Power from Machine||24VDC Power directly from the machine. In case of malfunctioning direct connection with Machine control panel||100% Certain of system operative status when machine is active and working|
|The most reliable object protection system today available on the market||Self monitoring of the components and diagnostics of readiness of the functions relevant to safety.||100 % reliable|
|Fire detection and extinguishing without the need of an electrical||The patented Lifdes sensor bursts only if the ambient temperature rises above 110°C. As soon as the sensor bursts, the pressure drops, and the valve of the cylinder bottle opens. The extinguishing agent is then discharged via the nozzles into the protected area.||Reliable extinguishing even in case of a power outage.|
|False alarms not possible||As soon as the Lifdes sensor bursts, the machine is put on emergency stop. This happens completely pneumatically and is therefore insensitive to all kinds of technical interferences.
The extinguishing process can only start if the sensor bursts, which means that an incorrect activation of the system is impossible.
|Insensitiveness to all kinds of technical interferences, power outages, and is immune to deception.|
|Comprehensive online monitoring and recording||All security-relevant functions and operation data are monitored online, indicated by acoustic and optical signals and indicated in case of an incident. The recordings can be read out via a USB interface.||In case of fire, all data can be readout and used for insurance reasons.|
|Maximum safety for the environment||Pure natural gases are used which have poor electric conductivity and are chemically inert. This means that they create no harmful residues that neither can harm the machine nor the environment.||Optimal object protection for critical applications with sensitive equipment.|
|High functional safety||The valve is VdS approved||Safe operation|
