The platform s new ESD will be implemented using a HIMA HIMax, a Programmable Electronic System
(PES) designed for use in production processes that can ill afford downtime.
The report, which was commissioned from consultants Real Time Engineering (RTEL), found that the problem potentially existed in every type of programmable electronic system
- from mainframe computers to microprocessors and embedded chips.
The guide discusses how to manage safety in electrical, electronic and programmable electronic systems
. It also provides guidance for engineers on how to integrate safety into a process system design.
