Safety Relays & Devices Maintenance & Troubleshooting

Course Number: SAF-COM101

This course will introduce you to monitoring safety relays and input and output devices used to configure safety systems according to industry standards for functional safety of machinery.
 
You will have the opportunity for hands-on experience with several of these components, which will help you to learn how they interact in safety systems. After completing this course, you should be able to maintain and troubleshoot relay-based machine functional safety systems with the following devices:
 
• Monitoring Safety relays
• Operator interface devices (e-stop pushbutton and grip enabling switch)
• Electromechanical switches (interlock)
• Electronic switches (non-contact RFID interlock)
• Opto-electronic presence sensing devices (light curtain and safety sensor)
• Pressure sensing devices (safety mat)

Prerequisites

To successfully complete this course, the following prerequisites are required:

  • Interpreting industrial electrical circuit schematics
  • Maintaining industrial electrical circuits or machine systems

Next Learning Level

Once you have an understanding of the topics and skillscovered in this course, you may want to attend specific safetytraining such as:
  • Functional Safety for Machinery Technician Certification (TÜV Rheinland) (Course No. SAF-TUV0T)

Hands-On Practice

Throughout this course, you will have the opportunity to practice the skills you have learned through a variety of hands-on exercises using a safety components workstation (Catalog Number ABT-TDSAFCOMP). Exercises focus on the skills introduced in each lesson.

Student Materials

To enhance and facilitate the students’ learning experiences, the following materials are provided as part of the course package:

  • Student Manual – Includes the key concepts, definitions, examples, and activities presented in this course
  • Lab Book – Provides learning activities and hands-on practice. Solutions are included after each exercise for immediate feedback.
  • Troubleshooting Safety Systems Flowchart – Offers an overview of the decision-making process that can be used later on the job.
