Hydac is pleased to announce that their TTControl 500 family of high-end controllers, the HY-TTC 500, has received ISO 26262:2018 certification for functional safety up to ASIL C fro TÜV Nord. This means that the same high level of functional safety
needed for off-highway machinery such as cranes, construction equipment and material handling equipment can now be utilized as an off-the-shelf component in trucks, buses, and municipal vehicles.
Eric Ringholm, Electronics Division Manager for HYDAC, commented, “Utilizing safety relevant components, such as the HY-TTC 500 family in an on-road environment will significantly reduce the cost of vehicle validation. A single controller can be used for one machine with a singular architecture that can be utilized across numerous applications to increase safety, handle complexity and save costs. I believe this is a first in the US, and gives HYDAC a distinct and credible competitive advantage.”
