The complex processes in the process industry are associated with high demands on functional safety: Where any failure or malfunction of automation systems could have serious consequences, efficient safety technology that reliably eliminates sources of danger is required. With a reliable safety instrumented system (SIS), which detects critical conditions plant-wide at an early stage and puts the system into a safe state when needed, the risks to man, environment and plant can be minimized.
With Safety Integrated for Process Automation, Siemens offers a comprehensive range of products and solutions for safe, fault-tolerant applications in the process industry. It covers the entire safety-related functionality – from the safe instrumentation to the safe and fault-tolerant controller to the actuator (e.g. positioners, valves and pumps).
And all of that with the complete integration of the safety-related system into the SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system.
