A team of students from UNSW Sydney has designed a virtual and augmented reality system that allows workers to safely shut down dangerous machinery in industrial plants.
The SLD is part of Moore Industries' FS Functional Safety Series range. The loop-powered SLD displays real-time process status in mA, per cent or any designated five-character engineering units.
The 2-wire loop-powered SFY is suitable for use in safety instrumented systems in a wide range of process and factory automation monitoring applications, providing reliable and accurate monitoring of frequency or pulse signals in an SIS.
A partnership with Endress+Hauser provided Nexeo with complete project management through engineering, installation, commissioning and training.
The wirelessly monitored Enardo 2000 emergency pressure relief vents provide safety control by managing abnormally high storage tank pressures in the oil and gas, chemical, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries.
Rosemount 975 flame detectors are a line of optical flame detectors designed to perform in the harshest environmental conditions and connect directly to alarm or automatic fire extinguishing systems.
The EZ-SCREEN LS is a rugged, easy-to-use safety light screen that is optimal for machine safeguarding.
Many oil fields, especially mature ones, can produce high levels of hydrogen sulphide, which is deadly at even low concentrations. As drilling and completions are often in remote locations, getting to the nearest hospital in time to respond to an exposure event could be impossible. It is always crucial to be able to detect the gas as soon as possible when a leak occurs, in even the most challenging conditions.
Rockwell Automation has purchased the assets of ESC Services, a hazardous energy control provider of lockout-tagout services.
The 481 Radiation Survey Meter is a simple, easily deployable, handheld radiation detector that lets facility managers quickly check for contamination, from receiving docks, warehouses, vehicles and packages to people. It is suitable for detecting radiation on goods, equipment, surfaces or environments in industrial settings to ensure worker safety.
The Rion NL series of sound level meters are designed to conduct a range of measurements, including spot checks around areas of potentially high noise levels such as production plants, construction areas and air conditioning.
Pilz has released version 6.0.0 of the PNOZmulti Configurator software package for use with the PNOZmulti modular safety controller. It is available in English and German, plus a new feature enables diagnostic messages for end users to be created offline in any language and imported into the Configurator.
The multifunctional PNOZsigma relay allows a smaller number of units to be used in applications that previously required the use of numerous different models of safety relay, meaning that stockholdings can be reduced substantially. The PNOZsigma relays also provide LEDs on the front that give much better diagnostic data than their predecessors, helping with troubleshooting and therefore reducing machine downtime.
Systems for thermal exhaust purification are subject to furnace regulations, and the safety of such plants presents a particular challenge for automation technology. In the past, the safety functions on systems manufactured by Dürr were monitored using conventional automatic gas burner control systems and safety relays, but safety and efficiency have since been greatly improved with the implementation of advanced safety control systems.
The demand for safety technology in bulk liquid storage plants is increasing worldwide. This market trend can clearly be seen in tank gauging projects where Safety Integrity Level (SIL) requirements are now being incorporated.
