Functional safety

System Realisation

SILMETRIC ® has a large experience of supporting systems integrators in the realisation of safety-related systems, such as system level reliability models, advice on the lifecycle documentation and instituting an appropriate functional safety management (FSM) system. Critical aspects such as capturing requirements, architectural and detailed design, verification and validation, traceability and configuration management are all areas that the standards deal with. Some of these requirements can be quite challenging for system designers to comply with and SILMETRIC can advise on the best course of action.

In addition to IEC 61508, SILMETRIC consultants can advise how to apply many of the functional safety sector or application standards including:

  • IEC 61511 (process and energy industries)
  • IEC 62061 and ISO 13849 (machinery applications)
  • EN 50495 (safety devices used in explosion protection)
  • EN 50402, EN 50271, IEC 60079-29-1 (gas detection systems)
