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.

SPA2IS Controls and Monitors Wet Wells
Municipalities often have several wet well locations around a city that pump waste from low lying areas up to main sewage veins that feed waste treatment plants.  Level instruments monitor the wet well level and controllers then engage the grinder pumps.  Since wet wells contain waste, volatile gasses such as methane require that these level instruments be rated for use in Class I, Div 1 environments.
