Bring Safety and Reassurance to Industrial Systems
The importance of “functional safety” in the industrial field, which aims to maintain safety even when malfunctions occur, is increasing to prevent the adverse effect of breakdowns and accidents inside plant operation, the adverse effect of injuries to operators, and the associated economic losses. The European Union’s Machinery Directive and workplace safety laws in many countries requires equipment to meet functional safety standards.
To reduce the development burden on customers as the application of functional safety standards expands within many industrial fields, Renesas offers functional safety solutions and development tools with safety support.
With the demand to improve safety in the workplace and reduce operating costs, the industry has initiated the need to implement functional safety standards according to IEC61508 to design inherent safety for control systems and equipment.
