My Motor Controller is Certified … or is it?

Recording Date: December 2018

In the process industry, many safety functions include a pump, motor, or other electrical device. To bring a process to a safe state the devices that control these electric elements need to work correctly. “SIL Certified” Motor relays, Motor contactors, Motor starters and Motor drives are commonly used for these Low Demand applications. However there is a misunderstanding in the industry on how the product was SIL Certified. High Demand SIL Certifications are prevalent for machine safety where the device or elements are moving frequently, but when dealing with systems in Low Demand there is a Large void in the process industry.

This webinar will discuss a survey conducted in 2017, it will talk about the lack of data in the field, and also provide suggestions on how to fill the void when all the answers are available when creating safety systems.
