February 2014 - Certified Safety Transmitter Offers Safety and Security with Unprecedented Performance

  (SFF = 98.5) at an Affordable Price


The best way to reduce risk is to design inherently safe processes. However, inherent safety is rarely achievable. A realistic alternative is to employ diversity in safety systems to increase system reliability and avoid common mode failures.



January 2014 - One Series Safety Transmitter, article by Wil Chin,  in Modern Pumping Today


Ask any engineer, getting the job done with fewer steps is the mark of a good design. Simpler is better, and nowhere is that maxim more true than when it comes to functional safety. Now plant safety teams get simple setup and faster, safer performance, right from the start.
