New and Improved: "Alarm Trips: The Ups and Downs" Technical Paper

When something happens in your plant, whether it's a signal peak or fall, you have to know about it. A limit alarm trip can be a life saver, triggering the response needed to maintain normal, safe operations.  

But nowadays just having an effective alarm trip solution may not be enough.  Pushing forward in ways to protect life, community, environment and facilities, the process industry is experiencing dramatic increases in the need for functionally safe solutions. Alarm trips utilizing the IEC 61508 Functional Safety standards are designed to reduce risk by following established hardware and software safety lifecycle procedures as well as maintaining its stringent documentation requirements.

In addition, the application of intrinsically safe methods of protection to prevent explosions and fires in hazardous areas continues to grow.  You can reduce your risk while saving money when you know about the option of using alarms that are associated apparatuses vs. separate barriers when implementing intrinsically safe alarm trip solutions.

Moore Industries’ technical paper Alarm Trips: The Ups and Downs has been expanded with added material on these topics to help keep you informed on the best solutions employing these safety standards and technologies.
