Getting Failure Rate Data for Motor Controllers

Recording Date: August 2019

Most final element device like values, actuators and relays are readily available with IEC 61508 certification and model specific failure rates. However it seems as if motor controllers got left out. Motor controllers are an important part of many safety instrumented functions (SIF). Like all electronic devices, dangerous failures can occur. Therefore it is important to be able to get failure rate data for these motor controllers. This webinar shows the recent motor controller update to the exida failure rate database used in the exSILentia software and how that data can impact the risk reduction capabilities of a SIF
