Oldham: The MX 43 gas detection controller
awarded SIL 1 certification

Oct. 01, 2015  + + +  Oldham believes that no gas detection controller should be designed that does not take functional safety standards into consideration.

Although there is no legal requirement that gas detection systems to be certified to or above a SIL 1 performance level (Safety Integrity Level - according to IEC/EN 61508 and EN 50402 functional safety standards), the fact remains that these systems are life safety devices.

Because of our unwavering insistence on the safety and reliability of our detection controllers, and the broad range of applications in which they are used, we adhere to the strictest functional safety standards. Whether the application presents an elevated risk of explosion and serious consequences to employee safety, or involves toxic gas detection in high risk areas such as water treatment facilities, Oldham guarantees the one of the most effective and safest solutions for your gas detection requirements.
