Process and Facility Technology

Safe Process and Facility Technology

Mechanical components in process and facility technology are being more and more replaced by electronical components or even steered by these. Therefore the number of electronical components and systems increases, just like their complexity and safety requirements.

Planers and operators of facilities know that the functional safety of their safety critical processes is indispensable. The reason is that the law regarding technical work equipment and consumer products (Device and Product Safety Law – GPSG) has determined that the proof of burden in case of an accident lies with the manufacturer. By an early assessment already at the development of international standards manufacturers can prevent problems.

Life Cycle Model prevents delays when Facility Planing

The systematic approach of the IEC 61508 enlarges the technical requirements at single complex devices regarding the entire safety Installation from sensor to actor including the management Frame conditions and reduces uncertainties with complex systems in safety applications. The IEC 61508 life cycle model and a consistent demand oriented Approach counteract delays at facility planing.
