Protecting People, the Environment, and Critical Control Assets

Main Image

The protection of people, processes, and the surrounding environment remain a significant part of any automation strategy. There are hazards and risks with any industrial application and process safety is a major concern for anyone who works in the process industries. We provide a broad portfolio of solutions to meet your unique process safety requirements through our team of process and industry experts.

Does Your SIS Meet Current Standards?

Is there an easier way to keep your facility safe? Yes. We have products, the experience, and know-how to take your safety initiatives to the next level. We have scalable solutions that are fail-safe, fault-tolerant, and support triple modular redundancy (TMR). Learn more about how this approach could work for your facility.

Safety Instrumented Systems Are Critical to Safe Operations

There are fundamental steps to determine if your existing systems are acceptable. The first step would be to identify all safety instrumented functions and determine what level of performance they need to meet. This includes establishing the required safety integrity level (SIL) of each safety instrumented function (SIF).
