Process Control Systems and Functional Safety

In which region do you need this solution?


As a result of the desire for cheaper and at the same time improved product quality, today’s requirement profile for products is often very complex and can usually only be realised through elaborately controlled manufacturing and process procedures.

Competition tirelessly spurs automation technology to develop even more sophisticated systems in order to produce even more sophisticated and high-quality products. This creates the impression that everything is becoming feasible.

For plants that have clearly defined safe states, namely standstill, and process substances or energies that can be described as non-hazardous, i.e. fault-tolerant environmental conditions, simple automation and control technology can be successful.

In cases where this is not the case, e.g. where the acceptable limit risk, injury to people, animals or environmental pollution would be reached in the event of failure of the control technology, further measures are necessary.

Fail-safe systems must be used that can still perform the intended function even if one or more errors occur. For example, cars have several braking circuits, aeroplanes have more than one engine, refineries have network replacement systems, there are multi-channel information systems etc.
