Safety awards may not garner the publicity of the big name shows like the Academy Awards, but rest assured they are more important as they help keep people and property safe.
Along those lines, functional safety and cyber security certification provider exida named the winners of its first Safety Awards 2013.
Awards were for three categories: Sensors, Logic Solvers, and Software products that best demonstrate innovative work and have the ability to play a key role in the continuous journey of making the world a safer place.
The following companies/products have earned this year’s honors:
• Sensors, and the winner is: Det-tronics’ FlexSonic Acoustic Detector
• Logic Solvers, and the winner is: Emerson Process Management’s DeltaV SIS with Electronic Marshalling
• Software, and the winner is: System Engineering Consultants Co., Ltd.’s RTMSafety
“We received several nominations for products that demonstrated exceptional work, making the decision process very difficult,” said Dr. William Goble, exida principal partner.
“exida recognizes the importance of excellence in functional safety, and congratulates the winners of this year’s awards,” he said. “We commend their commitments to manufacturing/designing products that are sure to make a difference in the ever-evolving world of functional safety.”
This is the first year exida conducted the awards and they are looking to make this an annual event.
