When a storage facility's tank level rises above safe limits, a logic solver that is part of a Safety Instrumented System (SIS) initiates final elements to restore the process to a safe state. This can include shutting off input feeds to the tank by isolating the pump and closing the input valve. This white paper explores the possibilities available to SIS designers of tank overfill protection systems when using a logic solver. It includes examples of system topographies and their associated Safety Integrity Level (SIL) calculations.
Lambda tuning gives non-oscillatory response with the response time (Lambda) required by the plant. Seven industrial examples show the relevance and simplicity of this method. Will Lambda tuning work in your process control loop?
End users have struggled with different forms of device integration technology over the years, but the FDI effort aims to rationalize the worlds' leading technologies for managing information from intelligent field devices.
This whitepaper by Gregory Hale, editor and founder of Industrial Safety and Security Source, explores how OPC UA provides a secure information gateway that is changing the way information is transferred in automation environments.
Manufacturing firms have used remote management of automation tasks for a number of years and for a variety of reasons. But due to recent changes in technology and strategy, remote management has recently jumped to the forefront.
