Azbil Corporation’s Smart ESD Device 700 series (700SIS) is now available. Devices in this series act as the interface for an emergency shutdown valve in a safety instrumented system (SIS). They are compliant with the IEC 61508 international standard for function safety.

FCG1601 AzbilESD

The 700SIS has been certified for applications that require Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 2 or 3, according to IEC 61508. It is equipped with the Partial Stroke Test (PST) function for online diagnosis of emergency shutdown valves, a feature that helps to maintain and improve the safety integrity level (SIL) while also reducing the cost of operation and plant design.

Advanced integration of devices utilizing HART® communication is also possible. As a key device in a SIS, the 700SIS is expected to contribute to safe and stable plant operation.
