The device recently underwent stringent functional safety assessments by third party agency exida and was found to be in compliance with IEC61508 : 2010 Parts 1-7. The Model 700’s rugged framework includes an electro-polished 316 stainless steel housing with fully encapsulated electronics and dual layer surge protection. These details virtually eliminate the threat of outside damage to internal components due to water ingress, corrosion, vibration, and transient spikes, says the company.
