Emerson Process Management’s CSI 6500 Machinery Health Monitor now has an IEC 61508:2010, Safety Integration Level (SIL) certification, Level 1, making it suitable for such environments as steam and gas turbines in power plants, critical refinery assets, nuclear industry critical assets, and other safety-critical applications.
The CSI 6500 provides insight into the health of critical assets with protection and prediction in a single chassis.
The CSI 6500 integrates into an overall Safety Instrumented System (SIS) to provide operators information in a format that they are used to seeing on a standard distributed control graphics screen.
“While building safety products, it is important to ensure the availability of the whole safety system to keep it in operation for many years,” said Thomas Wewers, director of technology for Emerson’s reliability solutions. “… As process systems become more and more intricate, built-in safety features are even more important.
