FCI FS10A Analyzer Flow Switch Achieves SIL-2 Compliance

May 31, 2013 - Model FS10A Analyzer Flow Switch/Monitor from Fluid Components International (FCI) meets the requirements for Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 2 compliant service.

FCI’s SIL 2 compliance rating for the FS10A Analyzer Flow Switch/Monitor has been documented in a failure analysis report with FMEDA techniques by the accredited certification body exida. The FS10A has been classified as a Type B subsystem in accordance to IEC 61508-1 with a hardware failure tolerance of 0. The average probability of failure on demand (PFD) and safe failure fraction (SFF) meets the requirements for SIL 2 compliance set forth in the standards.

The advanced Model FS10A Analyzer Flow Switch/Monitor is a small, lightweight instrument featuring low flow sensitivity, a relay alarm trip point, an analog output and an RS232 interface. The FS10A’s advanced electronics and thermal dispersion flow sensing technology provide an accurate, repeatable and superior overall solution for sampling system flow assurance.

In addition to SIL 2 compliance, agency approvals for the FS10A Analyzer Flow Switch/Monitor include FM, FMc, ATEX and IECEx for hazardous location installations.

Fluid Components International is a global company committed to meeting the needs of its customers through innovative solutions to the most challenging requirements for sensing, measuring and controlling flow and level of air, gases and liquids.
