standards for functional safety of
electrical/ electronic/programmable
electronic safety-related systems.

Past solutions for safe

operations may no longer be

Smart Sensors Provide

Sensors for pressure,
temperature, flow and
level play an important
role in your risk
reduction strategy. Its
important to consider
improvements in
technology as well as
installation and
maintenance practices.
The health of your safety loop is
only as reliable as the weakest
component. With discrete
measurement switches, you get a
level of safety, but these devices
are susceptible to failure
without warning.
Switches have few failure modes,
but almost all are dangerous and
undetectable. Regular proof
testing is thus requiredthese
tests can themselves introduce risk
because they are manual and
require strict adherence to
procedures and they put
maintenance personnel in
hazardous locations.

Smart devices deliver

predictive diagnostics
By replacing switches with
transmitters, you take the first step
towards reducing undetected
failures. Smart transmitters have
far fewer dangerous undetected
failures than switches. In addition,
the latest generation of smart
measurement devices extend the
embedded diagnostics beyond the
device and into the process.

health diagnostics
Todays leading smart
transmitters, like Emersons
Rosemount and Micro Motion
devices, go beyond
detecting component failures.
They evaluate the performance of
the complete measurement
system, extending diagnostics to
detect formerly undetectable
dangerous failures outside the
physical bounds of the

both transmitter and process

IEC 61511 defines two approaches

for selecting the right device for
your safety measurements. Both
methods have merit and are used

Prior use
This method requires
that you have
sufficient failure data
to be able to
investigate and
calculate the
probability of
failure on demand
and the safe failure
fraction. As the
leading field
device supplier,
Emerson can
provide the reliability
data you need for
these calculations.

The end result is greater credit

for failure on demand calculations,
easier compliance with
IEC 61511, higher safe failure
fractions, less redundancy, and less
proof testing, less often.

Increased diagnostics decreases risk.

Sensors are one key piece in the

ideal safety system. Final elements
are the next critical piece.

SIS Final Elements Del

The next step in the ideal
SIS is to equip the final
elements with digital
valve controllers that
provide the diagnostics
to extend the proof test
interval, while delivering
higher reliability and
Manual testing
Process manufacturers have gone
to great lengths, adding bypass
valves, manual jamming devices,
and expensive pneumatic panels
to facilitate proof testing of final
control elements.
Beyond the increased capital
expense, safety valve testing often
involves the installation and
subsequent removal of
mechanical valve interlocks.
This can expose maintenance
personnel and operators to
hazardous locations in the
process. And if the interlocks are
not removed after the testing, the
performance of the safety
instrumented system may
be severely compromised.
The majority of plant incidents are
caused by personnel and

procedural error, so removing the

need for manual proof tests while
maintaining the overall SIS
integrity is key in SIS applications.

FIELDVUE digital valve

FIELDVUE digital valve controller
instruments provide automated
performance monitoring and
testing by enabling remote partial
stroke testing while the safety
valve is online. This keeps
personnel safely away from the
valves locations. The FIELDVUE

Detection starts at the process.
Only Emersons PlantWeb
architecture for safety applications

2 NarrowCast
Should a problem be detected in a
device or the supporting process,
a PlantWeb alert is generated.
This alert travels to the logic
solver, which is configured to
narrowcast the alert to the
appropriate personnel and the
maintenance system.
In some cases, it is desired to
direct the alarm/alert to the
personnel who man the
planttwenty-four hours, seven

context sensitive guidance for
corrective measures.
In other cases, it is desired that
all safety personnel be alerted
to every safety alert. Emersons

Flexible Architecture
Applications that require safety instrumented systems to
reduce risk come in all sizes and topologies. You need an
SIS offering that can handle the smallest to the largest
application and one that has the flexibility to address
widely distributed architectures.

Flexible architecture
Whether you have an isolated
boiler or a large ESD application,
DeltaV SIS scales to provide you
with the safety coverage you
require for your SIL 1, 2 and 3 SIFs.
Unlike other approaches, the
modular logic solver hardware
scales in steps of 16 configurable
I/O. This means you automatically
add memory and CPU every time
you add a logic solver. The days of
running out of memory or CPU
power are over.
The architecture of DeltaV SIS
allows you to concentrate on the
design of each SIFeach logic
solver is a container for a small
number of SIFs and there can be no
unplanned interaction between

them. This is very different from

the traditional approach where
hundreds of SIFs are all placed in a
single safety PLC
and the effect of changing a single
register could affect all of the logic.
DeltaV SIS scales as the number of
SIFs scalessimply add logic
solvers to contain more safety
functions with no impact on the
performance of the existing
system. On a large plant these
logic solvers can be placed in
nodes close to the process unit
being protected; an intuitive
design with fewer opportunities for
maintenance errors that has the
added advantage of wiring savings.

functionality. This repeat
confirmation is automatically
executed for every on-line
command from all Workstations to
every logic solver, including
operational functions that require
data security such as bypasses and
trip limit changes.

For example, any bypass is

automatically flagged in the
operator interface and logged in
the event journal file.
The bottom line: built-in
capabilities in the PlantWeb
architecture, such as repeat
confirmation, change
management, download control,
device audit trail and others,
reduce the IEC 61511
compliance challenge.

Connecting with Your Existing

No matter what DCS or PLC you are using
as your basic process control system, you
can increase your plants availability using
Emersons smart safety instrumented

proven integration
With the advent of open
standards, integration of BPCS
and safety instrumented systems
has become easier. The OPC
standard introduced in 1996
provides an excellent mechanism
for high data transfer rates in realtime from an SIS to a BPCS. For
those with smaller data transfer
needs, the Modbus protocol may
be an alternative.

OPC integration
OLE for Process Control (OPC) has
become the de facto standard for
communications between
disparate systems in the process
industries. DeltaV SIS connects
with your legacy BPCS via OPC.
All operating and event
information is available to your
operator interfaces and history
collection software using an OPC

OPC Data Access (DA) provides

real-time data integration. With
Emersons field-proven OPC
Mirror, data from DeltaV SIS is
easily mapped into the OPC
Server of the installed BPCS.
Completing the integration is
OPC Alarms and Events, which
provides a means to include SIS
alarms and events into your
selected plantwide event
An excellent event collection
candidate for this function is
Emersons PlantWide Event
Historian, which provides a SQL
database for collecting timestamped events from multiple
sources into a single enterprise
event historian.

Modbus integration
Modbus may also be used to
interface the SIS and BPCS.
Modbus brings the advantage of
familiarity to most users, as
well as the comfort of
decades of proven reliability.

Modbus is often used

for communicating
process-related data
between SIS and BPCS,
while OPC is perfectly
suited to transferring
large amounts of SIS
data to be presented
on the BPCS displays.

Integration services
Our global solutions organization
has a long history of providing
these integration services if you
require them.
And since Emerson has offices
around the globe, we can provide
the ongoing support you need to
maintain efficient operations.
Bear in mindunlike the
integrated Emerson solution

traditional connectivity methods
require manual change
management procedures and
costly ongoing support.

Integrated Yet
If you already have a
DeltaV system or are
considering the DeltaV
system as your BPCS, the
DeltaV SIS solution
provides the true
integration youve
always wanted between
your BPCS and SIS, with
the separation required
by IEC 61508 and IEC
61511 standards.

The PlantWeb architecture for
safety applications fits easily with
your DeltaV BPCS. Perfect for
applications requiring SIS risk
reduction on only a few loops, the
DeltaV logic solver can be present
on the same carrier as a standard
DeltaV module. The power
supplies, communication
channels, hardware, and real-time
operating systems are completely
independent of the standard
DeltaV cards and the DeltaV logic
solver, maintaining the separation
required by IEC 61508.
All operations, engineering and
maintenance functions for the
two systems are integrated
alarm handling
time synchronization
user security
device health monitoring.
The integrated configuration
environment simplifies and
streamlines the engineering
effort. This integrated approach
eliminates time-wasting, difficult
to maintain data mapping, and
handshaking logic that is
common in existing solutions.

SIS information can be

displayed and alarmed
like any BPCS data.

Operators have one common

operating environment for both
the DeltaV BPCS and DeltaV SIS to
more effectively operate
the plant.
Unlike any other SIS solution;
engineering, operating, and
maintaining the DeltaV
integrated- yet-separate
architecture is easy.

Easier to configure and maintain.



DeltaV BPCS and SIS are

configured and operated
with the same software.

As data-driven
systems become
larger, making
more extensive use
of data, the
identification and
management of
data integrity
becomes a
significant factor in
the demonstration
that the required
system integrity
has been achieved.

With separate power supplies and TV approved

dedicated safety networks, SIS and BPCS components
may be mixed in the same cabinet for smaller applications.
