Emerson SIS (Safety Instrumented Systems) Engineers are First to be Certifiied by TUV to IEC 61511
Certification applies to all worldwide engineering of Emersons unique smart SIS that extends the innovations of PlantWeb® digital architecture to enable customers to implement safer process plants and facilities. DeltaV safety instrumented systems use information from the intelligent field devices within the PlantWeb architecture. Comprising sixteen-channel modular logic solvers, the DeltaV SIS system can be deployed in distributed fashion to perform programmable electronic system functions for virtually any process safety need.
The DeltaV logic solvers are the heart of the smart SIS total-loop safety approach. Only Emerson offers this approach that is implemented using the worlds broadest range of products certified in compliance with international standard IEC61508 for safety functionality. In addition to the DeltaV SIS systems, the smart SIS solutions integrate Emersons Fisher® digital valve controllers, Rosemount® temperature and pressure transmitters, and Micro Motion Coriolis flow meters.
The Emerson European engineering group was the first in the world to meet the IEC 61511 standard, followed by their colleagues in the Americas and Asia Pacific. Emerson professional safety personnel and services organizations help customers plan and implement smart SIS solutions to comply with the new IEC 61511 safety standards. Expert services include assisting the customer with process hazard analysis and risk assessment, along with smart SIS design, implementation, and commissioning.
We determined at the outset of our SIS program that we would have one standard, worldwide for our engineering groups working on safety instrumentation systems, said Phill Turner. Today all of our SIS engineering personnel follow the same TÜV certified processes. No matter where in the world a project is, it will be implemented to the new IEC 61511 safety standard.
DeltaV SIS is the heart of Emersons smart SIS architecture, built with PlantWeb® technologies. It offers automated safety loop testing and other capabilities that minimize personnel exposure to hazardous areas and increase system availability while reducing life-cycle costs and easing regulatory compliance. This smart SIS approach (www.EmersonProcess.com/SIS) uses the same engineering tools and operator interfaces as Emersons DeltaV digital automation system, enabling the viewing of safety system information from any operator screen.
