Asthe use of automation grows across all sectors of industry, functional safety standards are playing an increasingly important role. Since these standards give rise to numerous new, complex requirements and issues they should ideally be considered as early as possible in the design phase of embedded systems. Besides systems such as programmable logic controls (PLC), manufacturers increasingly rely on small intelligent devices for protecting people and the environment against the risks of technological systems.
Challenge: Integration of both safety and security requirements is increasingly becoming a priority
With the publication of edition 2 of IEC 61508, stakeholders must now consider security concerns in addition to safety functions.
At TÜV SÜD, we help you to comply with all requirements right from the design phase. TÜV SÜD's new "Safety & Security" certification mark further demonstrates that your devices are in conformity with present standards.
