Function test while installing the device in machines or execute systems
Following the results of a risk analysis, additional protection equipment on the machine or

programming, configuration and wiring of the inserted I/O modules have to be executed, in
accordance with the safety performance (SIL, PL or Cat.) identified by the necessary risk
analysis. The intended use of the device has to be ensured.
The proper use of the device has to be verified with a function test on the system. This test
can detect programming, configuration and wiring errors. The test results have to be
