Traditional safety systems have a centralized architecture, meaning that a large processor unit runs hundreds of safety instrumented functions (SIF). Modern safety systems have a distributed architecture where multiple smaller processor units execute dozens of SIFs....
In a recorded webinar, Smart Electric Valve Actuators for Critical Fail-Safe Applications, Emerson’s Knut Riegel and Umberto Bianchi share how these actuators are well-suited for emergency shutdown (ESD) applications.
Deliver better control, reliability, and safety in today’s demanding steam operations with Rosemount 8800™ MultiVariable Vortex Flow Meter
Vortex flow measurement is uniquely adaptive when it comes to handling difficult applications. By virtue of its science, utilizing the von Kármán effect, these instruments are accurate across a wide operating range and effective at withstanding high process pressures...
I received a question from a very old post here on the blog, Credit for Partial Stroke Tests in Verification Process. The person was trying to get a better understanding about this chart showing how partial stroke tests (PSTs) can extend the intervals between full stroke tests for final elements in a safety instrumented function (SIF).
Organizations have come to expect that their control systems will operate for many years and often anticipate using the same systems for decades. New improvements in cloud computing coupled with rapid advancement of control system technology has many people wondering...
At the Emerson Exchange Americas virtual series, Emerson’s Mike Hoyme and Stanley Af demonstrated diagnostics in the final elements within a safety instrumented function.
Augmented reality (AR) has come a long way since it first made a worldwide splash in mobile video games. No longer considered just a toy or novelty, AR is being implemented for real-world applications that are changing the way we work and learn. One area where AR is...
In a LinkedIn article, The risks and the opportunities of running an obsolete Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS), Emerson’s Mohamed Salman shares his expertise on evaluating the component subsystems in a SIS as they age.
