PROFIBUS Hi Tea - PROFIsafe, Safety Integrity and Fail-safe Design for Process Automation

PROFIBUS, the world market leader in fieldbus systems, and standardized in IEC 61158 and IEC 61784, is the very first in merging standard automation and safety automation in one technology, running on the same bus, using the same communication mechanisms, and thus providing highest efficiency to the user.
This solution is called PROFIsafe.

With the advert of internationally accepted IEC 61508/61511 standards, safety integrity concepts and implementing safety instrumented system have become more consistent and less ambiguous as a whole. However, there are various key concepts and design principles that needs to be better understood before the benefits of these standards can be fully harnessed. Having a false sense of safety may be even more detrimental than knowing the potential risk involved.

Measuring and comparing safety requires a good understanding of SIL (Safety Integrity Level) and failure probability. Just as in servicing your car increasing the level of safety, SIS (Safety Instrumented Systems) requires regular proof testing. The frequency of proof testing is proportional to the safety availability. Safety availability for fieldbus technology shall also be examined for its place in SIS and its future.
