We provide an array of control and automation solutions across a wide range of sectors. Whether you require a system upgrade, expansion or an entirely new installation, our technologically advanced control systems will ensure a system design of the highest quality.
As regulatory and client demands become more exacting, the functional safety standards BS EN 61508 and 61511 are an increasing contractual requirement. Therefore, to ensure that we meet and exceed your needs, and to demonstrate our compliance, it’s essential that we can demonstrate our functional safety capability. To achieve this, we operate a Functional Safety Management System that has been developed and documented as a Code of Practice with associated procedures and templates.
Our experienced TÜV-certified engineers are ready for consultation, system integration and SIL verification.
- The basis of any safety system must be the risk assessment around which the safety system can then be tailored utilising EN ISO 12100.
- The Machinery Directive does not specify the use of any particular standard, but the use of a control system meeting the requirements of the harmonised standard(s) is one means of demonstrating compliance.
- The two such standards which form the core of our safety systems design are BS EN ISO 13849-1 (replacing EN 954-1 in November 2009) and IEC 62061 and IEC 61508.
- We offer a range of services that ensure our customers are in compliance with the standards and industry best practice. For further information click here.
- Functional Safety in a process installation refers to a Safety Instrumented System (SIS), which consists of sensors, a logic solver and one or more final elements. The purpose of an SIS is to detect the abnormal functioning of a basic process control system (BPCS) and bring the process to a safe status before a dangerous situation occurs and as such a SIS should always operate independently to the BPCS.
- We offer a range of services aligned to the IEC 61511 standard that ensure our customers are in compliance with the standard and industry best practice.
