CENTUM VP has a simple and common architecture consisting of human machine interfaces, field control stations, and a control network.
The ProSafe-RS is a Safety Instrumented System that is certified by the German certification organization (TÜV) to meet Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 3 specified in IEC 61508. It has been used in over 2,400 projects, ranging from large scale integrated process automation projects to stand-alone solutions.
ProSafe-SLS is a Solid-state controller providing inherently failsafe performance and 10ms response. It is solution for high integrity safety requirements and used in subsea as well as onshore pipeline protection systems. It is proven to be the most reliable solution for rugged environments.
Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) protect people, environment and assets. Yokogawa’s SIS and relevant safety solutions are widely used in applications of Emergency shutdown, Fire & gas, Burner management and HIPPS.
