The Product Safety Case Study provides a solution testimonial of this SIL certification process with TÜVRheinland, and documents the complete experience of developing a Functional Safety product.

Moore Industries strategically chose TÜVRheinland to provide a third-party safety assessment and IEC 61508 certification for the STA. "It was integral to the product’s success that a highly reputable and internationally-renowned third-party agency document the safety and quality of the STA Safety Trip Alarm. TÜVRheinland was the best choice, considering the scope of the approvals process for the STA," said Moore Industries Director of Engineering, Tina Lockhart.

The Product Safety Case Study details the rigorous steps required to pass a TÜVRheinland safety assessment, and discusses the great benefits and value added to a product with TÜVRheinland’s certification. With TÜVRheinland’s third-party certification to IEC 61508, Moore Industries STA alarm follows best practices in the safety industry, and appeals to the best interest of end users.
As the IEC 61508 standard has become more widely recognized and adopted by worldwide customers, end users are looking for products that have been designed to IEC 61508 from their initial concept. Customers are demanding not only compliance to the standards but verification from an independent third-party agency such as TÜVRheinland.

"The Product Safety Case Study published by TÜVRheinland is an excellent resource, and truly validates the expertise of TÜVRheinland throughout the certification process. The case study demonstrates the importance and advantage of obtaining independent third-party approvals for safety products," Lockhart said.
