Safe Software, Safeware
Software according to IEC 61508, EN 50128, ISO 26262...
The term “Software” stands for differing concepts. Whether in the guise of firmware with defined functions or as a programming and parameterization tool for the user – the safety-related classification according to SIL (IEC 61508, EN 50128) or ASIL (ISO 26262), as the case may be, must be identical to the classification of the safety function.
In contrast to hardware, however, software shows no signs of wearing out or aging. If it does not work as required, this is caused not by accidental, but by systematic errors that for the most part occurred in the design phase of the software.
Here a consistent method of working after a model encompassing all the development phases, such as the V-model, is helpful.
The measures stipulated in the standards for avoiding systematic errors in the individual development phases are manifold. They have to be implemented according to SIL or ASIL.
For example, in the coding phase it makes sense to follow defined coding rules for the programming language or previously defined standards, such as MISRA for programming in C.
We at innotec are experts in the wide field of safety-related software development. We have successfully provided support for the realization of projects ranging from simple sensor technology firmware and embedded systems to networked PLC. Together with you we define what measures are really necessary in order to avoid errors so that your software project can be carried out cost-effectively and successfully.

The fight against the spread of the Coronavirus
Unfortunately, the Coronavirus Corvid-19 is spreading rapidly around the world. Business trips are almost impossible. Many companies have instructed their employees to do home office or they prohibit meetings and workshops. innotec has been working successfully with its own employees in the home office concept for many years and has also many years of experience to implement projects from afar by using internet services. This also reduces travel costs and CO2 emissions.
We are searching employees for functional safety consulting to expand our team!
