Safety Function Blocks

Oct. 18, 2012

Are you comfortable using advanced safety logic that is embedded in a safety system? Having pre-engineered MooN or CEM function blocks can save engineering and testing time, but deviates from the traditional code-intensive approach. If the supplier is IEC 61508 certified, do you have confidence that the advanced safety function blocks work as intended?
