Honeywell upgrades safety manager system
For use in all major industrial processing markets—including oil and gas, refining, chemicals and power generation—Safety Manager integrates safety measures that are dispersed throughout a manufacturing facility to reduce risk to employees and plant assets, increase process availability and improve regulatory compliance. The latest version includes new integration capabilities with process simulation tools and fire and gas detectors, as well as a data exchange and control communication protocol that will allow safety engineers to design and build large integrated and distributed plant-wide safety strategies. Safety Manager includes the same levels of cyber security protection found in Experion.
“Honeywell submitted its Safety Manager system for cyber-security testing, and the comprehensive tests did not impact the safety functions in any way,” said Eric Byres, founder of BCIT’s Critical Infrastructure Security Research team and currently director of security at Wurldtech Research.
Key new features include:
- Integration with Honeywell’s UniSim simulation system to reduce overall risk and impact of system modifications and bring new plants into full production much faster.
- Honeywell’s SafeNet protocol. SafeNet is a TUV SIL3-approved data exchange, control, and peer-to-peer communication protocol that enables separate safety systems within the facility to communicate with each other for more effective integration.
- Integration with Honeywell’s Field Device Manager (FDM). FDM automatically configures HART safety field devices and integrates them into the Experion database.
Safety Manager also can be integrated with Honeywell’s newest lines of fire and gas detectors for increased protection, as well as third-party applications and systems to reduce validation and acceptance testing costs. It also features tighter integration with Experion’s alarm and events capabilities.
