The Series MX SAFEMAX is the new Camozzi safety valve, designed to provide a plug & play solution, compliant with the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.

Two versions are available: the single-channel valve classified in category 2 to achieve Performance Level D, and the double channel valve classified in category 4 to achieve Performance Level E.

The Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC is a European directive that ensures the free movement of machines within the European market, guaranteeing the minimum level of protection for the health and safety of operators. It is the machine manufacturer’s task to examine the basic operation of their machine, identify the risks, attempt to minimize them through physical safety devices or unavoidable barriers, adequately choose the components of the safety system and the installation layout.

To achieve the safety and functional objectives of the machine, it is essential to follow a structured procedure. The first step of this procedure is to analyze the risk to determine the Performance Level expected by the safety function. After that, it is necessary to verify that the required level has been achieved.
