Is your current safety system compliant to today's safety standard?
Air Date: Tuesday, March 20, 2012
Your safety automation infrastructure might have been installed while today’s safety standards (IEC61508 and IEC 61511/ISA 84) were still in development. Some of those safety systems, particularly the ones installed between the late 1980's and early 2000, are either general-purpose PLCs, or not designed as a safety system according to the IEC 61508 standard others might not satisfy current requirements on IEC61508 (Edition 2); overall they were not implemented according to the IEC 61511/ISA84 standard.
This workshop covers the changes in the safety standards and the safety life cycle activities involved in modifying or decommissioning an existing system to install certified Safety Systems (i.e System 800xA High Integrity).
Join Control Engineering for this Webcast on Tuesday, March 20, and learn about these changes in the safety standards and the safety life cycle activities involved in modifying or decommissioning an existing system to install certified Safety Systems (i.e. System 800xA High Integrity).
