From John R Savage Director National Fluid Power Centre UK

On the 17th October the NFPC had the pleasure of hosting the first of many one day Technical Seminars presented by Ross Control covering “Fluid Power Safety Techniques in Advanced Safety Control Systems”. The seminar was very well attended and the Key Speaker was Chris Brogli, Vice President of Ross Controls and a TUV Rheinland Functional Safety Expert with over 31 years’ experience involving Global and National Standards for machine and process Safety. The day consisted of two specific seminars outlining todays requirements for Advanced Safety Control Systems as we advance into the fast moving world of Integrated System Engineering. The very informative presentation 1 was followed in the afternoon by an equally informative presentation relating very much towards the actual ways in which these safety techniques could be implemented.
