Sharing Process Variables: Quad Isolator

Sharing Process Variables: Quad Isolator

Problem: When sharing a Process Variable (PV) with multiple systems, the connection needs to be thought out carefully. Sending a signal go to more than one PLC needs to be well thought out just as carefully.

Product of the Month: STA Functional Safety Trip Alarm

Product of the Month: STA Functional Safety Trip Alarm
Risk reduction, reliability, and safety are important factors in the automated control of potentially hazardous processes such as the overpressure and containment of dangerous substances. Process Industry personnel are always aware of the need to protect people, the environment, and facilities as part of their overall risk management plan. A central strategy employed today includes safety instrumented functions (SIF), or functional safety, utilizing IEC 61511 standards. A crucial instrument in a safety instrumented system is the logic solver, which acts as a decision maker initiating the final action to make the process safe should the need arise.

EHELP: STA Latching Checkbox

EHELP: STA Latching Checkbox

Q: We do not have sufficient PLC digital output spares to perform a Manual Reset of the three installed safety temperature controllers. We are going to remove the alarm latching on both limits and faults on our STA Functional Safety Alarm Trip. The Manual Reset radio button stays active in the STA configuration software. Will the latches clear after we are outside the dead band limits?
