Embedded systems services go beyond traditional product safety assessment and test the functional safety of your complex and interconnected technologies and systems according to the global standard IEC 61508, and derived standards like EN ISO 13849-1, IEC 62061, ISO 26262 and CENELEC EN 50129, CENELEC EN 50128 and CENELEC EN 50126 for the railway sector.
As the software and hardware used in industrial sectors such as the rail industry are becoming increasingly complex, and components are now sourced from multiple markets with shorter development lifecycles, more and more safety risks occur. As such, the reduction of safety risks to an acceptable level and the establishment of safety management for potential failures are increasingly important.
There are multiple benefits to conducting assessments of your embedded systems, including:
TÜV SÜD offers extensive rail sector expertise and experience in functional safety issues to support global industries to test and certify their products to the highest safety standards. The knowledge, capabilities and network we have developed over the years enable us to provide complete one-stop support for functional safety issues. Our extensive suite of in-house services includes independent safety assessment, certification, technical advisory and training.
TÜV SÜD holds all necessary accreditations as a testing laboratory according to DIN EN ISO / IEC 17025 and for safety components according to the Machinery Directive Annex IV.
We offer a complete portfolio of testing services for generic safety systems in the industry:
TÜV SÜD provides independent safety assessments during the development lifecycle. We conduct assessments though a combination of on-site inspections and documentation review, resulting in an independent safety assessment report.
Our experts can certify your product in accordance with IEC 61508 and all relevant sector-specific safety standards, such as CENELEC EN 50129, CENELEC EN 50128 and CENELEC EN 50126
We provide advisory services throughout the development lifecycle to help you design safer products. These services include concept analyses, verification of development documentation, qualitative and quantitative analyses, validation of generic products and applications, software development processes, and software analyses.
TÜV SÜD conducts functional safety training programmes for your development teams. Topics include IEC 61508, EN ISO 13849-1 and the EN 5012X series or the equivalent IEC standards. We can also customise in-house training to suit your needs
