Transmitters Reduce Safety Risks

Dec. 1, 2008
A line of SIL 2-certified pressure transmitters promises to help users achieve higher levels of safety to reduce the risks of human injury, property damage and environmental impact.
These Foxboro Hart version pressure transmitters now meet the SIL 2 TÜV Certification set by TÜV Rheinland. This certification is awarded in part on Safe Failure Fraction (SFF) numbers and calculated failure rates. The SFF rating is key to the certification, and the SIL 2 TÜV certified pressure transmitters surpass the 90 percent rating that TÜV Rheinland commonly requires for qualification for use in safety instrumented systems (SIS) at the SIL 2 level. Further, mean time between failure (MTBF) ratings are said to be far ahead of those achieved by competitive offerings.Invensys Process Systemswww.ips.invensys.com469.365.6651
