Functional Safety

metalologika has many years of well-founded experience in the development of functionally safe products and systems according to IEC 61508 and sector standards for process automation IEC 61511, machine safety IEC 62061 / ISO 13849, safety-related drives EN 61800-5-2 and gas warning devices EN 50271 / EN 50402. We cover all relevant roles and functions in safety projects: Development of hardware and software, project management and functional safety management. If necessary, we first analyze your existing processes and help with the introduction of a tailor-made functional management system.

Typical activities in safety projects include:

  • Gap analysis and introduction of Functional Safety Management System (FSM)
  • Training (from management training to expert training for HW/SW developers)
  • Creation of documentation, such as safety plan, V&V plan, document plans, ...
  • Creation of the technical safety concept
  • System/HW development according to IEC 61508-2
  • Safety analyzes (FMEA, FMEDA, derating analysis, cascading failure analysis, ...)
  • (Embedded) software development according to IEC 61508-3
  • HW/SW tests at the module, integration and system levels
  • Support for the assessment of functional safety at external test centers
