Activities Control Devices

  • detect and consider developments in the field of control devices at an early stage concerning safety and security of machines in a comprehensible and user-appropriate manner and promote qualified discussion between interested persons.
  • present expert know-how in practice-oriented seminars:
  • take control devices as an important element of machines into an integrated consideration
  • co-design the international standardization if possible and transfer new findings on an international level
  • elaborate a practical guideline to raise awareness for safety and security describing types and application of control devices: what has the control device to do and with whom has it to communicate?  A message for customers: make your networks safe. The manufacturers of components should give advise but will not be responsible.

 

Good example from practice: Functioning of a redundant system

 

Standard installation without safety shut off valve. Failure of single control valve leads to an accident


 

Installation with safety shut off valve. Failure of single control valve, accident avoided by safety shut off valve


 

Installation with safety shut off valve. Failure of single control valve, one failure of safety shut off valve, accident avoided by safety shut off valve


Dear visitor,
if you also have a good example from practice, please send it to us.
Thank you
