Field Instrumentation in Process Safety Systems

Thursday, April 26 2 p.m. ET/1 p.m. CT/11 a.m. PT

When can the process control and safety systems share field devices? An SIS and BPCS can sometimes share components, but not without careful analysis. What are the relevant safety standards, and how do they answer this question? Given the high cost of many field devices, companies want to save money wherever possible but sometimes it’s at the expense of safety. Ed Marszal, president and senior engineer at Kenexis, examines this question with case study examples of correct and incorrect approaches.

This webcast will also answer the following questions:
• What is a safety sensor?
• An SIS and basic control system use the same types of devices, but what makes a safety sensor special?

Exida, a company that tests and certifies devices from all manufacturers, explains the safety certification process and why it matters in critical applications.
