DESCRIPTION

BS EN 61508-6:2010


This standard BS EN 61508-6:2010 Functional safety of electrical/electronic/ programmable electronic safety related systems is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 13.260 Protection against electric shock. Live working
  • 35.080 Software
  • 25.040.40 Industrial process measurement and control
  • 29.020 Electrical engineering in general
IEC 61508-6:2010 contains information and guidelines on IEC 61508-2 and IEC 61508 3. Annex A gives a brief overview of the requirements of IEC 61508-2 and IEC 61508-3 and sets out the functional steps in their application. Annex B gives an example technique for calculating the probabilities of hardware failure and should be read in conjunction with 7.4.3 and Annex C of IEC 61508-2 and Annex D. Annex C gives a worked example of calculating diagnostic coverage and should be read in conjunction with Annex C of IEC 61508-2. Annex D gives a methodology for quantifying the effect of hardware-related common cause failures on the probability of failure. Annex E gives worked examples of the application of the software safety integrity tables specified in Annex A of IEC 61508-3 for safety integrity levels 2 and 3. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1998. This edition constitutes a technical revision. It has been subject to a thorough review and incorporates many comments received at the various revision stages.

NEW! Also available: IEC Standards+ 61508:2010, containing all parts, together with a commented Redline version. Changes made in this 2nd edition are highlighted and commented by a leading world expert.
