Meet Liz Smith, a Software Engineer with the EPD. Liz was at the heart of a team tasked with upgrading their established and successful RESOLUTE true-absolute, fine pitch optical encoder system, – the world’s first absolute encoder capable of 1 nm resolution up to 100 m/s for linear systems, and 32-bit resolution up to 36 000 rev/min for rotary systems.Watch how she and the team tackled the project to successfully develop a version for safety critical environments, RESOLUTE FS
Read how Liz and the rest of the EPD team tackled the challenge of re-engineering an established, high quality product to comply with IEC-61508 SIL2 demands.
In striving to achieve compliance with IEC 61508 SIL 2, the Renishaw EPD team applied LDRA’s Static and Dynamic Analysis tools to achieve MISRA C 2012 compliance, and to adhere to the IEC 61508 functional safety objectives.
