SCADA solution with SIL 2 certification

27 January 2015

COPA-DATA has received Safety Integrity Level 2 (SIL 2) certification for its zenon SCADA product, which enables it to meet the requirements of IEC 61508 for the reliability of the safety functions of operational facilities.

The SIL serves to evaluate electrical, electronic or programmable electronic systems with regard to reliability and safety. It represents the potential risk that arises from people, systems and processes, and the benchmark for the required safety of the system, depending on the danger. 

There are four levels of safety integrity level, whereby level 4 is the highest safety integrity and level 1 is the lowest. 

The SIL 2 certification was carried out by TÜV Süd Rail. As part of the certification, COPA-DATA's processes, procedures, tools, quality standards and documentation were tested to establish their suitability for safety-critical systems.

"For companies that operate industrial equipment or traffic infrastructure, it is important to guarantee safe operation and to adhere to international standards in the process," said Reinhard Mayr, product manager at COPA-DATA. "With the certification, TÜV Süd has confirmed that we have the corresponding expertise to set up SIL 2-compliant processes and SIL 2-compliant systems and thus support our customers in the SIL certification of their equipment."
