Dedicated safety system design made easy using Simatic SIS compact

Safety applications such as Burner Management Systems (BMS), Emergency Shutdown Systems (ESD), Fire&Gas (F&G) applications as well as High Integrity Pressure Protection Systems (HIPPS) can be achieved easily and safely using the Simatic SIS compact.
The basic hardware is a CPU 410SIS controller. The software package uses Simatic S7 F systems and ensures that safety-oriented, fault-tolerant and standard programs can run on the same CPU.
For an optimum match to specific safety requirements, the Simatic SIS compact system is available in four pre-configured bundles. Basic and Extended packages, each in a Single and Redundancy version. They can be connected to any process control system via Modbus/TCP. The two so-called extended packages contain additional OS software for HMI functions, such as the Simatic Safety Matrix. Highly available systems with respect to the CPU, communication and distributed I/O systems can be created using the respective Redundancy-variant.
The TÜV certificated Safety Lifecycle Management Tool "Simatic Safety Matrix" allows safety applications up to SIL 3, in accordance with IEC 61508, to be used with the extended packages. It can be used for the engineering of safety applications as well as for their easy operation and monitoring.
