Honeywell Safety device

December 14, 2011

Honeywell has introduced its new Safety Manager Field Device Unit (FDU), which allows process manufacturers to more easily implement small, standalone safety applications in their facilities. The offering combines Honeywell Process Solutions' (HPS) widely used Safety Manager platform and Remote Universal Safe I/O into a single, space-friendly unit that meets the Safety standards (IEC61508, IEC61511) for Safety Integrity Level three (SIL-3) out of the box.

The module's small size makes it ideal for plants that need to quickly implement integrated safety measures for applications such as burner or boiler management systems. This is critical due to increasingly stringent safety regulations and compliance standards, which often require manufacturers to upgrade or even replace existing safety equipment. For example, an outdated, non-compliant panel in a boiler management system could be replaced with the FDU in the limited space close to the boiler.

"With safety standards continuing to grow and expand, having a current, updated safety system is top-of-mind for many plant operators and managers," says Erik de Groot, marketing manager, Safety Management Systems for Honeywell Process Solutions. "The Safety Manager Field Device Unit is perfect in these cases because it offers a flexible, configurable solution that promotes the safety of facilities in any industry."
