after passing rigorous failure mode effects design analysis (FMEDA) and total time in service tests.

The MXa with the SIL 3 capable rating is designed to provide customers reliable actuation in critical environments without compromising their Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS). The MXa actuator carries the safety rating in a one out of two (1oo2) configuration, which requires two actuators and valves to be installed into a SIL 3 rated environment.
