Relays have to be calculated on failures in contact pairs and on coils and depend on many factors (as each type of relay has a different failure rate). 015% per 1000 hours per contact. 0% per 1000 hours, as also have some mechanical devices such as blower motors (4% per 1000 hours). 0005% per 1000 hours. 0001% per 1000 hours. 01% per 1000 hours. Integrated circuits (ICs) or 'chips' are now used in virtually all electronic equipment. The introduction of silicon integrated circuits in the late 1950s and early 1960s produced a revolution in electronics so far-reaching that it can be likened to the invention of printing from movable type in the late fifteenth century.

44 An Elementary Guide to Reliability It is essential that he or she uses the control correctly, and the following are the more important considerations which will increase the probability that this will be done. A similar layout for display and controls will assist in selecting the correct control. A further advantage is for the operator to associate a particular shape of knob or control with a particular function, by touch as well as by sight. When a control is used it is essential that the operator can see the associated display.

In the event of a serious fault there can be so many warning signals that the operator can be presented with much more information than can be assimilated and acted on correctly under emergency conditions; for instance, in a nuclear power station. The operator is consequently unable to distinguish the actual fault, and the malfunctions arising from the fault, from the mass of warning information being presented. Designing a warning system which will be effective in all fault conditions is therefore complex and difficult, and must be closely related to human characteristics; it will involve such considerations as the nature and positioning of warning signals, the priority in which they require attention under various fault conditions, and the ability and speed with which an operator can be expected to respond to them correctly in an emergency.
