The ProSafe-RS is a TÜV certified Safety Instrumented System (SIS) for use in SIL 1, 2, and 3 applications in a single modular configuration, with superior availability in a redundant configuration. It can be a standalone system or tightly integrated with our CENTUM VP Distributed Control System.
Yokogawa's safety solutions minimize interruptions with:
Here are the top 10 reasons why ProSafe-RS is the fastest growing safety control system in the global market.
As the last line of defense, the safety controller must act reliably exactly when it needs to. Yokogawa's exclusive Versatile Modular Redundancy maintains unlimited SIL 3 operation even under multiple failure scenarios. This reliability by design allows ProSafe-RS to continue operating long after other safety systems would have failed.
The high-efficiency ProSafe-RS engineering environment allows online software changes and system expansion while the safety function continues operating. No shutdown is necessary.
Our integrated control and safety architecture minimizes CAPEX and OPEX costs. It maintains safety control segregation while providing a common operator environment, common system maintenance, precise time synchronization and sequence of events analysis for DCS and SIS functions.
Users can rely on Yokogawa for all functional safety and risk reduction needs. ProSafe-RS has the unique ability to scale from small process units to complex petrochemical and offshore production applications. Plus, its IEC 61508 type approval spans SIL1 to SIL3.
Yokogawa’s Functional Safety Management solution is TÜV certified according to IEC 61508 and IEC 61511 Edition2 2016. This solution supports a clear functional safety policy that complies with international standards.
ProSafe-RS can interoperate with a broad range of control, SCADA and PLC systems. When used with Yokogawa’s systems, standard displays, faceplates and database compatibility substantially reduce project execution costs and user learning curves.
Unlike most Safety Controllers, ProSafe-RS provides integral asset management support. It can communicate I/O and HART information directly to Yokogawa’s Plant Resource Manager without the need for a separate multiplexer. Integrated safety health checks include scheduled partial stroke valve testing.
Network I/O enables automated commissioning by decoupling application engineering from field wiring. Software configurable I/O modules at the edge eliminate marshalling and reduce wiring by up to 80%. Plus, last-minute I/O changes require no new hardware and keep the project on schedule.
Today’s high demand for plant connectivity and information has resulted in a substantial increase in cyber threat vectors. With built-in security measures by design and certified by all global industry security standards, Yokogawa’s ProSafe-RS continually undergoes rigorous testing in our global cybersecurity lab to ensure maximum protection.
Yokogawa’s comprehensive safety lifecycle management solution simplifies compliance and reduces both CAPEX and OPEX. It provides Process Hazards Analysis services and solutions, an intuitive user interface, improved safety integrity reports and automated change management.
In maintaining and managing industrial plants, monitoring waste water pH/ORP is both a legal obligation and an unavoidable necessity for protecting the environment. Monitoring without an attentive eye can lead to severe consequences.
Process automation end users are under more pressure than ever to do more with less. The current economic climate means that many automation capital projects are on hold. With capital budgets tighter than ever, users instead focus on operational budgets (where cost cutting is also a key concern), or on automation investments with a very rapid return on investment.
Yokogawa has come a long way in making its message clear to the world of process automation. Last year, the company embarked on a full-scale global marketing campaign to make customers aware of the company's focus on system reliability, security, dependability, and robustness. Dubbed "Vigilance", the campaign created a unified message for the company and greatly helped expand awareness of the Yokogawa brand and corporate philosophy.
Network and system security is now a necessity in process automation industry. YOKOGAWA provides a service lifecycle solution for cyber security to ensure that the security measures and deployments are continuously enhanced, monitored and inspected.

Recently, several ARC Advisory Group analysts and management team members had a chance to sit down with the new Yokogawa President and COO, Mr. Takashi Nishijima, and several other top Yokogawa executives to discuss the company's burgeoning presence in the worldwide upstream and midstream oil & gas industry.
Launched in February 2005, Yokogawa's ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system (SIS) quickly gained a significant share of the market. Just 18 months later, 100 units had been sold-quite a feat considering the generally conservative nature of the SIS market. So what is behind this rapid success?
A Yokogawa ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system (SIS) will be the nucleus of a new fire and gas safety system at Shell's Clyde (NSW) refinery. The contract includes the control system, system engineering and installation and supervision.
Due to emerging competitors from the rapidly growing countries such as India and China and the global economic downturn triggered by the Lehman shock, many companies in the process industries are struggling to survive the severe global competition.
