  • Isolation Transformers Increase Safety of Electronic Systems (.pdf)
    Adequate isolation between a power source and a user of electronic equipment ensures the safety of that equipment. Given the high voltages that exist in modern electronic equipment, proper isolation protects an operator from contact with excessive electrical energy should a short circuit occur
  • Design and Development of Medical Electronic Instrumentation
    sophisticated. instruments at a small fraction of the comparable commercial cost. The book addresses the practical aspects of amplifying, processing, simulating, and. evoking these biopotentials. In addition, in two chapters we address the issue of safety in. the development of electronic medical devices
  • Efficiency in Machine Safety
    This paper looks at the growing trend of designing safety systems to meet the efficiency requirements of other machine control systems. It provides several examples of systems currently being used such as electronic switches and AS-Interface.
  • Programmable safety begets new standards
    systems. The reason was that programmable electronic systems were complex. It could be difficult to predict how a device behaved in the event of a failure, But new safety standards have led safety PLCs and controllers to become more widely accepted in the U.S. In fact, many users are combining safety
  • Prescribing Transformers for Medical Electronic Systems (.pdf)
    electronic devices, and for military-grade reliability. Because of this, virtually all components of medical electronic products, as well as the end products themselves, must be designed with safety in mind. In specifying transformers for the power electronics in medical systems, designers should
  • How to Determine the Safety Integrity Level (SIL) of a Safety System
    The Challenge of Safety Systems Electronic systems that carry out safety functions, such as gas detection systems, are becoming more complex, making it impossible in practice to determine every failure mode or improbable to test all possible behaviours. It is difficult to predict the safety
  • Safety and Security: Mercedes-Benz S550
    The S-Class earned the Safety and Security Award for an array of sophisticated safety features. Mercedes S-Class 550 wowed the judges with state-of-the-art technology and a regal sticker price. Radar system warns if the distance to the vehicle in front is too small. Distronic Plus in the Mercedes
  • Electronics Spur Active Auto Safety
    to determine if a vehicle is lingering in the driver's blind spots. Automotive safety has hit the wall. That was the consensus of industry experts assembled by in early August to discuss new electronic systems and how they can contribute to reducing highway fatalities. The point was hammered home in figures
  • Better Marine Safety Through ECDIS and Color Calibration
    When is accurate color representation a matter of international safety? When it involves the electronic navigation charts used in ECDIS systems. Learn more about the strict color calibration requirements for ECDIS displays and the implications for display manufacturers.
  • Managing State Data in Automotive Safety Systems
    the majority of its useful life with the power off. Automobile safety systems are developing an increased amount of electronic data handling. Future designs include occupant sensors in seats that communicate information to the airbag controller regarding the presence and/or the weight of the occupant
  • New Mercedes C-Class showcases safety
    Mercedes' integrated safety concept spans from accident prevention to occupant protection in severe collisions. Safer and sleeker. The newly redesigned Mercedes C-Class arrives on U.S. shores this fall. Head restraints with an angle adjustment give better support which reduces the risk of neck
  • SIL 101 (Safety Integrity Levels): How Safe Do I Need To Be?
    standard 61508, is the safety that control systems provide to an overall process or plant. The concept of Functional Safety was developed in response to the growing need for improved confidence in safety systems. Major accidents around the world, as well as the increasing use of electrical, electronic
  • Choose Low Smoke, Halogen-free Cables for Improved Safety
    Safety first with halogen-free cables. Halogen-free wires and cables are used in various petrochemical, transportation, utility, electronic and semiconductor applications. Advocates. of halogen-free cables fear that during a fire, air-handling distribution systems like heating and air-conditioning
