Safety Instrumented Systems

Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) play a vital role in providing the protective layer functionality in many industrial process and automation systems.

These systems may also be referred to as Emergency Shutdown Systems (ESD) or Process Shutdown Systems (PSD). Key international standards, concepts and best practices must be adhered to when implementing a Safety Instrumented System.


It is therefore vital that clients appoint a supplier who has the experience and project implementation techniques to deliver a fully compliant system.
