- MTTFd (Mean Time to Dangerous Failure)
- TM (Mission Time)
- DC (Diagnostic Coverage)
- L10h (Nominal service life, for rotary encoders with regards to service life of ball bearings)
The values and calculation procedures have been developed by BGIA (Institute for Occupational Safety).
When the values are available for all components in use, the safety assessment of the machine or plant can follow. At Pepperl+Fuchs, you have easy access to values of the majority of standard sensors.
