Functional safety in the industrial field is a high priority. This is to prevent the adverse effect of breakdowns and accidents inside plant operation, injuries to operators, and the associated economic losses. The European Union’s Machinery Directive and workplace safety laws, in many countries, require equipment to meet functional safety standards. To reduce the development time and burden on customers, as the application of functional safety standards is extended to many industrial fields, Renesas offers functional safety solutions and development tools certified by TÜV Rheinland (IEC61508).
In this webinar, find out more about the latest Renesas Functional Safety Solution overview together with the application example for industrial drives (AC Drive, GP Inverter).
