This workshop is ideal for product design, safety, or management personnel involved in the development of electronic or programmable systems that may have safety implications, and for a company’s product engineering processes as they relate to safety requirements and standards.
Prerequisites for the course are:
Workshop Topics Include:
• Control Systems Engineering
• Systems Engineering
• Communications Systems Engineering
• Software Engineering
• Reliability Engineering
• SIL and PL calculations
Objectives of the workshop include:
• Explain why safety functions are integrated in electrical motor drives, including a global perspective on regulations and laws.
• Discuss the principles of implementing safety functions in a motor drive – under what circumstances can a motor drive be considered to be fail-safe.
• Describe functional safety from a sub-system aspect
• Discuss the need for functional safety management for a subsystem; differences between IEC 61508 and IEC 61800-5-2
• Have a clear grasp of typical safety functions and their applications in machinery, elevators/lifts, processes
• Determine design requirements: where IEC 61800-5-2 refers to IEC 61508, where it differs (i.e. is more concise, more explicit) from IEC 61508
• Explain requirements related to usage instructions; in particular, related to commissioning from “non-safe” platforms
Workshops may be attended publicly at UL facilities or, if your organization plans on sending five or more individuals to a workshop, it may be cost effective to have UL present the course as a private workshop at your facility.
