Every good software developer in the off-highway industry codes with safety in mind, right? So, what’s all this functional safety stuff about and why do we need to know it? DISTek continuously strives to stay on top of things like this, and recently DISTek engineers were lucky enough to get answers to all their functional safety questions in a 3-day training session. We received training on Functional Safety Standards ISO 13849 and ISO 25119 by the experts at UL. Being familiar with these standards will help us add structure and consistency to our software engineering work on safety-critical systems.
DISTek will be taking over Louisville, Kentucky next week. We have plans to host a supplier technology display at the Agricultural Equipment Technology Conference (AETC) hosted by ASABE (American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers). The AETC is a three day event held at the Seelbach Hilton that kicks off on Monday, February 13th and concludes on Wednesday, February 15th. The AETC provides a forum for engineering professionals working for, or with, equipment manufacturers and those developing new standards the opportunity to come together to celebrate and grow engineering skills.
