Announcing the SFY Functional Safety Frequency-to-DC Transmitter with Display and SIL 3 Capability

Announcing the SFY Functional Safety Frequency-to-DC Transmitter with Display and SIL 3 Capability
Moore Industries is proud to announce the new SFY Functional Safety Frequency-to-DC Transmitter with display including SIL 3 capability. The 2-wire (loop-powered) SFY is ideal for use in your Safety Instrumented System (SIS) in a wide range of process and factory automation monitoring applications and as part of the FS Functional Safety Series providing reliable and accurate monitoring of frequency or pulse signals in SIS. The SFY is approved for single use in SIS up to SIL 2 and in a redundant architecture (1oo2, 2oo3, etc.) up to SIL 3.

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 Analog Output Protection

EHELP: STA Analog Output Protection
Q:  In specifying the Moore STA / HLPRG / 3PRG / U / -AO [DIN] our end user has a concern about electrical protection for the analog output. The desire is to use 4-20mA Output Loop Voltage sourced by DCS for the AO; however, this voltage may fault at up to 132 VAC. Should our design add fuse protection in the external voltage circuit upstream of the STA to protect it from these surges? Or does the STA include features that protect it from these faults?

Burner Management System Signal Splitter Application for a Pulp and Paper Mill

A pulp and paper mill had a black liquor BMS (Burner Management System) that per NFPA 85 requires that its safety logic system be totally independent from other logic systems.  The challenge was they required that key temperature and pressure signals also get monitored and recorded by their BPCS (Basic Process Control System). Learn how Moore Industries solved this problem.
