Safety in the process industry
More and more plant operators are striving to design their plants completely in accordance with the PCE protective devices for functional safety. In particular, this can prevent dangerous damage or cost-intensive failures in the process industry.
Such protective devices usually consist of many individual safety functions, which are to be realised, for example, by actuators, control valves, emergency stop switches, and many more. These are actuated electrically and often monitored by a programmable controller. With the SIL (Safety Integrity Level) analysis, the individual components are examined for the probability of failure.
