Can the TPS-1 meet the functional safety standard IEC61508?
The IEC61508 standard belongs to electrical or electronic systems. The TPS-1 can be seen as part of a system, but the TPS-1 itself will not be certified as a safety element. The TPS-1 is a communication controller, whereas the safety issue will be implemented in the application protocol, meaning the main communication layer. For this purpose you can use the PROFIsafe application (safe communication layer).
