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 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?

Alumina Refinery: Overpressure Protection of a Filter Vessel

Mining & Metal Refining Industry

Alumina Refinery: Overpressure Protection of a Filter Vessel
The process of converting bauxite to alumina for aluminium metal refining involves a complex manufacturing process.  Much of this process requires critical temperature and pressure control, which if left unchecked could result in catastrophic consequences. Learn how Moore Industries solved this problem for an alumina refinery in Australia.
