What are "AK" and "RC" ratings? Look at " www. Regards Wolfgang Albert. Hi, TUV is a German state controlled organisation established to verify technical installations ranging from ordinary cars to nuclear and chemical plants on safety issues.
The AK6 level is a safety level the logic controlling system of a plant or part of a plant has to fullful. The levels go from 1 to 8 with 8 being the most stringent safety requirement I think nuclear plants fall under AK8. A good article on these issues can be found at: " www. Deals with the requirements for safety. Hope this helps. TUV is an Organisation which certifies safety and shutdown systems as well as some electronics such as Computer Monitors.
AK-6 being highest and AK-1 being lowest. My company Alphatech Corporation Ltd. Regards, H. Shaner Beam. Dear All, I am control system engineer and working in this field from last 16 years.
Right now I am doing automation consulting free lancing. In these application safety is very important which is taken care ny TUV guidelines. AK6 class means higest safety and availability. But if you take normal PLC example then it is 30msec etc. All the best and come back to me for more details if required.
Gruhn, Paul. Not exactly. AK 8 is the highest level defined. AK 6 is the highest level software based systems have been approved for. Paul Gruhn, P. Siemens, Houston, TX. Gene Wilkins. Dennis Wright. TUV will also publish a report, this will state any limitations or restrictions in use and must be read in conjunction with the safety manual. So the fatter the report the greater the number of omissions in the safety manual and restrictions imposed by TUV, and of course vice versa.
As for the standard, the amount of paperwork that must be submitted is awesome! Hitesh Shah. If any one has any idea please let me know. Paul Gruhn. A listing of the vendors, system, level of redundancy, certification level, date of approval, etc. The first URL is 'prettier', but second is easier to naviage and has info on the standards. Sorry Hitesh, but I think you're asking the wrong sort of questions! Dear Mr Paul Thanks for the reply. However I could not make out what's wrong in the question I am asking.
I am not getting carried by the market information that's why I have approached to this forum where the information is available without any ill intension.
Kiel-1, Larry. Hello, I'm not an expert at this but I think I can shed a little light on the subject. Their web site is attached below but to tell you the truth it wasn't much help when I tried to find out what AK-6 is.
Maybe you will have more luck. When something has a TUV certificate it means that is has passed a specific set of testing requirements that the TUV people use to validate the equipment. If you need something TUV certified you are probably dealing with a control system that needs to be either fail safe very reliable with redundancy designed in or you have a safety issue that you are trying to minimize. You might be able to find out at their web site. Larry Kiel KSC You are right Only FSC sytem from Honeywell can do it Rem: Don't forget the SIL validation studies.
