tec.nicum engineering


Overtravel measurements in hazardous areas that are secured via contactless protective devices (BPS / AOPD) are amongst the frequently requested engineering services provided by tec.nicum. This is the measurement of the time required for hazardous machine movements to come to a standstill. This value provides the safety distances for hazardous areas in accordance with EN 13857:2011. These measurements are carried out by tec.nicum engineers on new machines (in accordance with DIN EN 693, DIN EN 12622, DIN EN 13736, DIN EN ISO 13855 or ZH 1/281 at regular intervals on existing machines and plants.

In addition, we also provide the following measurements:

  • Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC),
  • noise,
  • vibrations, and
  • emissions.
