Automation safety system from Emerson wins safety award

18 November 2013

exida, a safety certification body has stated that the innovative design, flexibility, and cyber-security features were the reason for the DeltaV SIS with Electronic Marshalling taking the award this year.

Emerson’s DeltaV safety instrumented system (SIS) has been granted the 2013 Safety Award by exida, a global leader in functional safety and cybersecurity certification for the process industries. exida recognised the DeltaV safety instrumented system with its safety award for the logic solvers category, citing the system’s Electronic Marshalling and CHARMs technologies.

"exida recognises the importance of excellence in functional safety," said William Goble, exida principal partner. "Through extensive analysis of the nominated products, we believe DeltaV SIS with Electronic Marshalling has the ability to play a key role in the continuous journey of making the world a safer place.

"The DeltaV SIS architecture is what I would call a hybrid. It combines the best attributes of many different architectures into one. Also, its flexible design gives users all the different I/O types they need, and allows them to pick levels of redundancy and safety so they can make trade-offs between costs and the essential parameters of availability and safety."

Goble went on to state that cyber security is a big consideration – noting it was not even a topic of discussion in safety systems just a few years ago. "It is something a lot of people are now having trouble retrofitting," he said. "The DeltaV SIS with Electronic Marshalling and CHARMs technology was built with security as an important part of the design.
