ABB has released its next generation System 800xA High Integrity safety system.

System 800xA High Integrity, a SIL3 rated Safety Integrated System (SIS), provides superior protection of the process, plant, personnel and the environment and optimises overall process efficiency and cost.

System 800xA High Integrity leverages the System 800xA common engineering tools, human system interface, historian, audit trail and asset and device management applications to improve the overall integrity and reliability of process control and SIS operations.

This environment offers safe and instant interaction between applications.

System 800xA High Integrity is available up to and including Quad configuration to allow end users to tailor their safety systems to specific process requirements to optimise efficiency and cost while protecting the process, personnel and the environment.

System 800xA High Integrity offers the flexibility of hosting both safety- and process-critical control applications in the same controller, providing logical separation of control and safety functions.

The latest version of the System 800xA High Integrity SIS includes several new features designed to augment safety integrity.

System 800xA High Integrity utilises embedded hardware and software diversity in the logic solver and I/) subsystem, with diverse execution paths to detect any potential random failures.

It includes additional SIL 3 libraries for shut-down applications and provides combined non-SIL, SIL 2 and SIL 3 applications for increased safety protection and process efficiency.

While embedded safety and control is one option offered by System 800xA High Integrity, the customer can also deploy it in several other possible configurations.

The system can operate as a stand-alone safety system or can be integrated with the process control system while it maintains physical separation of control and safety functions.

All of these configurations provide superior protection of personnel, plant and the environment while offering various levels of operational efficiency improvements.
