SIL funtional safety for ATEX
DescriptionSIL standards EN 61508 and EN 61511 can be used for the elimination or reduction of explosion risks. For example, the EN 50495 standard "Safety devices required for the safe operation of equipment with respect to explosion risks" combines SIL standards with explosion risks (ATEX Directives). There are also technical guides such as the European guide to Directive 2014/34 / EU where they use SIL standards to be able to carry out ATEX certifications of equipment, as well as industrial guides such as the UIC (Chemical Industrial Union) document DT83.
