Key Parameters

Key Parameters As previously seen, to design the SIS (“Safety Instrumented System”) according to IEC 61511, several requirements must be met throughout its life cycle. Compliance with the SIL level assigned to each SIF (“Safety Instrumented Function”) is one of these requirements, and is performed by calculating the Average Probability of Failure on demand (PFDavg …
