SIS study

New digital interactive whitepaper

This year, Moore Industries successfully released the STA Safety Trip Alarm to respond to customers needing a highly reliable alarm used in Functional Safety applications. In conjunction with the alarm, Moore Industries sales force has seen a great increase in demand for Functional Safety education concerning IEC 61508 applications and Safety Instrumented Systems.

Now they have released “Safety Instrumented Systems: The ‘Logic’ of Single Loop Logic Solvers,” a new digital interactive whitepaper.

The whitepaper examines what the "new generation" of safety-certified Single Loop Logic Solvers can achieve, especially regarding IEC 61508, the standard for “Functional Safety of Electrical/Electronic/Programmable Electronic Safety-Related Systems” developed by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). With a brief tutorial of Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) and their related Safety Instrumented Functions (SIF), the whitepaper provides valuable background before delving into more complex topics including:

• IEC 61508 Provision Guidelines,
• FMEDA Reports,
• Logic Solvers as Safety Trip Alarms and
• Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Variations and Requirements.

The digital interactive whitepaper includes pop-up “Selection Hints,” linking to data sheets and to helpful areas on Moore Industries’ web site.
“Safety Instrumented Systems: The ‘Logic’ of Single Loop Logic Solvers,” can be downloaded as a PDF free through their corporate website.
