Fluid Components International (FCI) now offers the industry’s broadest offering of Safety Integrity Level (SIL) compliant thermal flow meters and liquid/gas flow switches and level switches.
Today, compliance with the various international and regional safety standards requires a more rigorous approach to the overall safety lifecycle of a system compared to the reliance on the best engineering design practices of the past.
As a result, a broader and significant increase in the implementation of these standards has been noted within the instrumentation and control industry. The standards most commonly referenced in the process industries are: IEC 61511: Functional Safety – Safety Instrumented Systems for the Process Industry Sector; ANSI/ISA-84.00.01 (IEC 61511 Mod) – Functional Safety: Safety Instrumented Systems for the Process Industry Sector; and IEC 61508: Functional Safety of Electrical, Electronic, and Programmable Electronic Safety Related Systems.
