Industrial Control Validation Products Overview

IEC 61508 ▪ IEC 60730

Proven, Cost-effective, and Flexible

In the global market for industrial equipment, compliance with safety standards such as IEC 61508 has morphed from “nice to have” to “must have.” Required or not, compliance with IEC 61508 provides buyers with a high level of confidence in your product. Our Industrial Validation Suites and Industrial Validation Kits are the fastest, easiest and by far the most affordable route to device certification.

APIs Identical to Commercial Versions

Unlike some companies, every VSC product has the same API as the manufacturer's commercial product. This ensures that all functions are identical to the version you used to develop your application.

For developers who are not using one of our supported RTOSes or needing to create an IEC 61508 compliant development and test program, our Industrial Validation Templates are available to jump start that effort.
