How Functional Safety can improve product reliability, reduce manufacturing downtime and expand your market.
-By Scott Orlosky and Jean-Marc Hubsch, Sensata Technologies
Engineers designing systems for industrial and factory applications are adopting functional safety design practices to reduce the risk of system failures that could result in costly damage or injury. In addition, adhering to functional safety processes can help expand a manufacturer’s market and customer base worldwide.
Protecting systems’ operators from the potential for major injury is an imperative understood on both sides of the Atlantic. While safety standards are unified under an international umbrella, adoption rates have been slow as manufacturers and system designers consider which set of standards they should follow and which will give them the greatest competitive advantage.
