IEC 61508 SIL 3 Certification
The RadICS Digital I&C Platform was certified by exida as an IEC 61508:2010 SIL 3 capable digital I&C platform intended for nuclear safety applications. RadICS achieved the SIL 3 rating in a single channel configuration. The redundancy typical of nuclear safety systems provides an additional level of risk reduction.
The RadICS Platform is robust, flexible, and scalable. It provides state-of-the- art functions, services, and safeguards for both safety and non-safety applications in the nuclear industry. The RadICS Platform components are designed to the latest IEC standards for safety-related service and the highest classified nuclear systems. The RadICS Platform consists of a Logic Module, basic input/output modules, and specialty modules all housed in a seismically qualified chassis.
SIL 3 Compliant Platforms Contain Four Critical Elements:
Functional Safety Control
Effective Process Execution
High Product Reliability
Proper Organizational Factors
Benefits of a SIL 3 Compliant System:
High levels of resistance to random hardware and “systematic” design failures.
Verified rigorous process for hardware and software design, as well as, the manufacturing and quality control processes.
Assurance that RadICS safety-related systems will offer the necessary
