About the Green Hills Platform for Industrial Safety
In July of 2006, Green Hills announced that INTEGRITY achieved certification by TÜV to Safety Integrity Level 3 (SIL3) of the IEC-61508 safety standard. SIL3 is the highest assurance level achievable for an individual software component, such as an operating system. The certified INTEGRITY operating system forms the core of the Green Hills Platform for Industrial Safety, a comprehensive solution composed of tools, operating systems, services, and middleware aimed at reliability-critical industrial control and automation systems.
CoDeSys is the leading hardware-independent IEC 61131-3 programming system under Windows for creating controller applications. As the programming interface for hundreds of different industrial hardware devices, CoDeSys is the tool used by thousands of application programmers every day in different industrial applications, such as mounting machines, mobile machines, ship equipment, process industry, and building automation.
CoDeSys supports all the programming languages of the standard and offers complete back ends for all common processors. Controller applications for any kind of target hardware can be developed and operated comfortably with CoDeSys.
CoDeSys SP is a platform-independent controller system for embedded and PC-based systems (SoftPLC). The development surface for CoDeSys SP is CoDeSys which guarantees for the high stability of the application.
The IEC-61508 standard is commonly used internationally by regulatory bodies for safety certification of industrial control, automation and automotive systems. IEC-61508 is gaining acceptance in other industries as well. IEC-61508 covers the entire software development life cycle and places a strong emphasis on analyzing and mitigating safety hazards, enforcement of a rigorous quality management system, and extremely thorough verification and validation.
