What does functional safety SIL – mean?
Processes where the risk of accidents such as personal injuries or environmental damage is judged to be great, are increasingly equipped with safety systems that put the plant in a safe condition in the event of an accident. These systems are dimensioned in accordance with international standards for functional safety, such as IEC 61508, IEC 61511 and EN ISO 13849. AUMA’s SIL-certified products constitute an important link in a SIL-classified system.
