Review: UK Functional Safety IEC / EN61508 Seminar, July 3, 2019, Birmingham

Friday, 12. July 2019

In Industrial Automation, systems and devices must comply with international Functional Safety standards.

MESCO and NXP therefore informed about the basics of standards-compliant product development (IEC / EN 61508) - this time at the Arrow Electronics Workshop in Birmingham, UK.

Peter Bernhardt, Head of Sales and Marketing at MESCO, gave valuable information on the Functional Safety market, the contexts of the standards to be complied with, and practical information on the implementation of hardware and software developments. He also provided important basics for Functional Safety Management and introduced new MESCO Design Packages.

NXP explained the advantages of their pre-certified products and libraries, informed about the new microcontroller families for use in future Functional Safety products.

To serve those interested from the UK, this seminar took place in Birmingham, UK.

EtherCAT/FSoE: MESCO offers new services for Industrial Communication!

EtherCAT is the efficient Ethernet communication technology for high-performing real-time communication functions as well as for high synchronisation accuracy of the factory automation. For realising a safe data transmission for EtherCAT, the protocol Safety-over-EtherCAT (FSoE) has been defined.


Bundled expertise for your process device development

MESCO develops for PA! We have bundled and intensified our portfolio for development services in the field of process automation since summer 2020. We are now integrating our many years of expertise in explosion proof and functional safety even more closely with current PA issues and are more specifically geared towards Industry 4.0 / IIoT. Of course, as usual: from concept to certfication.
What exactly is new and what are the details?
