SAFETY SWITCHES FROM HONEYWELL RECEIVE SIL 3 CERTIFICATION
Using a rigorous testing process, this certification not only verifies quality, reliability, and effectiveness, but also meets IEC 61508-2 standards for selling and designing in Europe. Any OEM, machine builder, system integrator, or automation provider who needs to manufacture to a safety integration level, can now incorporate Honeywell’s SIL 3 capable safety switches into their designs.
“New safety standards are going into effect at the end of 2011, and Honeywell makes it easier for OEMs to get SIL certification for their own machines using our SIL 3 certified safety switch components,” said Steve Gonzalez-Costa, Global Product Manager. “This is another example of how Honeywell is committed to delivering quality in our manufacturing, testing, and design processes. We want to meet and exceed our customers’ performance requirements and SIL 3 certification helps by verifying that we are manufacturing to high industry standards.”
