Electric, digital and programmable digital structures, corresponding to emergency close down platforms and railway signalling platforms, more and more perform defense capabilities to protect employees and the general public opposed to damage or dying and the surroundings opposed to toxins. The foreign regular IEC 61508 has been constructed as a known typical that applies to a majority of these platforms regardless of their program. IEC 61508 is obvious through many pros as advanced. This ebook overcomes that complexity through introducing the traditional within the context of protection typically prior to relocating directly to supply sensible recommendation approximately imposing it and acquiring certification. It additionally explains how IEC 61508 pertains to moment tier criteria and similar tips, akin to IEC 61511, 61513, UKOOA, ISA S84.01 and DIN criteria, between others. during the textual content, the authors illustrate their factors with examples to which the solutions are provided within the appendix. 4 case stories with additional workouts set the data in context. Templates and checklists for drawing up your individual implementation plan and knowledge on self-certification also are supplied. As useful protection, the normal, is acceptable to many industries, Functional defense , the publication, in its past version has proved to be a useful reference for pros from quite a few industries, similar to project/instrumentation/design/control engineers in addition to protection execs in oil and gasoline, chemical, rail, strength new release, nuclear, plane, and car industries. the recent version incorporates a new bankruptcy on IEC 61511, the method area normal, released because the first variation. The textual content has been up-to-date all through in mild of the authors' fresh adventure and case stories were further. Dr. David J Smith , BSc, PhD, CEng, FIEE, HonFSaRS, FIQA, MIGasE, has been without delay enthusiastic about reliability, safeguard and software program caliber for 30 years. He has written a couple of books at the topic in addition to quite a few papers. His PhD thesis used to be just about reliability prediction accuracy and customary reason failure. He chairs the IGasE panel which develops its instructions on safety-related structures (now in its 3rd edition). He has additionally made contributions to IEC 61508. Kenneth G. L. Simpson , MPhil, FIEE, FInstMC, MIGasE, has been linked to safety-related platforms layout and likewise with their evaluation for 25 years. he's a member of the IEC 61508 drafting committee and likewise of the I fuel E panel which writes the fuel counsel. Following a occupation in aerospace, Ken has spent two decades within the keep an eye on process and is a Director of Silvertech overseas plc, a number one dressmaker of safeguard and keep watch over structures. He has written a few papers at the subject and offers common talks. * a pragmatic consultant to reaching useful protection criteria in safety-critical platforms * Makes a fancy general effortless to persist with and units it within the context of probability and security * presents help for these venture self-assessment, which may get monetary savings spent on huge consultancy charges

Sample text

It is proposed to implement an add-on safety system with instrumentation and shutdown measures Which type of SIL is indicated and why? Which SIL level should be the target? 2 If additional fire fighting equipment were made available, to reduce the likelihood of a fatality from 1 in 10 to 1 in 30, what effect, if any, is there on the target SIL? These involved the low demand table in which the risk criteria were expressed as a probability of failure on demand (PFD). Now try Exercise 3. Exercise 3: Target maximum tolerable risk ϭ 10Ϫ5 pa.

By test: where failures are simulated and the number of diagnosed failures, or those leading to a safe condition, are counted. By FMEA: where the circuit is examined to ascertain, for each potential component failure mode, whether it would be revealed by the diagnostic program or lead to a safe condition. Clearly a 60% safe failure fraction could be demonstrated fairly easily by either method. Test would require a sample of only a few failures to reveal 60%, or alternatively a ‘broad brush’ FMEA, addressing blocks of circuitry rather than individual components, would establish (in an hour or two) if 60% were achieved.

It does, however, give a quick indication of which region the scenario represents. In the event of its being in the tolerable (ALARP) region (classifications 2 and 3) then further justification is required to show that the risks usually are ALARP, maybe using a combination, of approaches. These might include the quantification described earlier in this Chapter as well as demonstrating that approved codes of practice have been followed. CHAPTER 3 MEETING IEC 61508 PART 2 IEC 61508 Part 2 covers the safety system hardware and overall system design, whereas software design is covered by Part 3 (see next chapter).
