Design engineers that optimize system design from the beginning for SIL (Safety Integrity Level) compliance are able save time and money for their company. “SIL (Safety Integrity Level) compliance” or “SIL certified” is commonly referred to as a synonym for compliance/certification with IEC 61508 or a standard derived from IEC 61508.

This free webinar will discuss the meaning of a SIL by examining its different characteristics and will provide practical information on its achievement and verification:
• SIL and risk to be reduced or controlled
• SIL and integrity to reduce or control the risk
– Reliability (“PFH”, “PFD”)
– Robustness (“HFT” , “CCF/b-value”, “SFF”)
– Freedom from design faults (“systematic integrity”)
