Functional Safety Service

Service Introduction

Business Challenge

In the field of modern industry, electrical, electronic, or programmable electronic (E/E/PE) safety related systems are designed to implement the required safety functions. Once systematic failures of E/E/PE occur at random times, it could have disastrous consequences to the human being, equipment and environment.

The IEC 61508 standards suggest that the effects of the random failures must be evaluated in a quantitative way by utilizing Safety Integrity Levels (SIL). There are 4 SIL designations provided in IEC 61508: SIL 4 has the highest level of safety integrity and SIL 1 has the lowest.
