Emerson Brings DeltaV SIS into the Future with Version 11 Release - http://www.arcweb.com/Domains...
"Among the many new product introductions and revisions at the Emerson Global Users Exchange, the company announced Version 11 of the DeltaV SIS safety system. DeltaV SIS has now come into its own as a standalone safety system offering that can be sold independent of the DeltaV control system. Emerson designed DeltaV SIS to address the issues that face safety system end users today, from flexibility in design to increased reliability, increased visibility into the system, reduced complexity, and easier regulatory compliance. The SIF-based architecture of DeltaV SIS means that the system can be highly modular. Version 11 now essentially eliminates any size restrictions on the system." - DeltaV SIS System from Bookmarklet

Shell's Long-Time Push for Fieldbus - "All safeguarding devices, fire and gas included, will be 4-20mA HART." - http://www.controlglobal.com/article...
"As for other fieldbuses, Gul adds that presently FF technology can only be used for the process control and monitoring part of the projects. "It's not yet approved for use in safety," he says. "All safeguarding devices, fire and gas included, will be 4-20mA HART. We do not consider HART as a fieldbus, but HART data is now also used more and more for diagnostic input in the various asset management systems, rather than just for configuration." - DeltaV SIS System from Bookmarklet

The Safety Instrumented Function (SIF) - Test Your Knowledge - Meridium - http://www.apmadvisor.com/article...
There are multiple definitions for safety instrumented function (SIF), lending to confusion around just what a SIF is, and what it is not. Failure to identify true SIFs leads to less safety. Identifying things as SIFs that are not, leads to unnecessary cost, burden, and complexity. - Mike Boudreaux from Bookmarklet

Top Five Dominate Process Level Measurement Device Supplies
"Emerson Process Management has demonstrated its ongoing commitment to level measurement with the new Rosemount 5300 guided wave radar (GWR) level transmitters for SIL2 safety instrumented systems. Following successful third-party evaluation, the 5300 series now comes with the required failure modes, effects and diagnostic analysis (FMEDA) report. As a result, says Emerson, companies in the oil and gas production, refining, petrochemical, chemical and power industries can benefit from the superior performance of GWR technology while ensuring compliance with associated IEC industry standards." - Mike Boudreaux from Bookmarklet
