Systems Engineering with focus on Functional Safety
NTSafetySolutions: The complete package from NewTec for functionally safe solutions
Manufacturers are required to provide proof that a product is safe and satisfies the relevant development standards with ever increasing regularity. With NewTec as your partner, you develop products which correspond to the latest safety standards – and do so effectively, reliably and at low cost.
Safe products – quick and efficient
Whether it is industrial systems, cars, aircraft or medical equipment – technical products are becoming increasingly sophisticated. The potential sources of error are therefore multiplying. To prevent damage to people, the environment and equipment and to minimise the liability risks, it is necessary to design systems in order to ensure that technical faults are prevented as far as possible and to exclude risks in the case of unavoidable errors.
The way in which this functional safety is to be realised is governed by standards such as the IEC 61508 basic safety standard or corresponding sector- and/or application-specific standards.
Benefit from our expertise: NewTec offers you a comprehensive and complete package of services, products and training and consultation offers surrounding the development of functionally safe systems. We naturally ensure that your product development not only corresponds with your requirements, but all of the relevant standards as well. According to your specific requirements, we offer ready-to-use high-tech solutions with the required safety-related integrity up to SIL 4, including hardware, embedded software and application software.
From the product idea to the safe operation
Our wide range of solutions and services for safety engineering covers the complete life cycle of your system – from the product strategy, to the implementation of the project, to the safe operation. This includes strategic and technological consultations, risk and requirement analyses, safety concepts, the technical implementation of all requirements as well as various tests and analyses, but also support with the integration, approval and operation.
Safety-oriented developments, including approval and integration, can be very time-consuming and expensive, and require specialist know-how. The wide range of expert- and project services from NewTec relieve and speed up your product development.

Safe operation: managed services
In particular, it is necessary for interconnected products and cloud-supported applications to be operated safely and kept up-to-date at all times in order to be equipped for cyber threats. At the same time, updates should ensure that no recertification of functionally safe solutions is necessary. In this respect, NewTec supports you with customised operational concepts and managed services.
Our ready-to-copy platforms for a variety of areas of use can be easily adapted to your individual requirements. They speed up your product development and support you in better harnessing the potential of your products and in managing the risks that arise in the areas of functional safety and information security.
