Use of Safety Integrated in the oil and gas industry (video)

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
With the media system, you will receive comprehensive information and visual explanations in video format of the use of Safety Integrated in the oil and gas industry.

In the oil and gas industry where procedures are often extremely complex, there can be no weak points in the automation systems. Any fault or malfunction can have fatal consequences. The minimization of potential danger to personnel, plants and the environment using technical tools must therefore be the top priority – but without this affecting the industrial production process.

In order to reliably eliminate sources of danger and minimize risks, you require an efficient safety concept that meets the high demands of functional safety.

Media system
The media system provides you with the opportunity to get an accurate picture of the use of Safety Integrated in the oil and gas industry in a quick and convenient fashion. In doing so you will find answers to the following questions:

  • When does Safety Integrated need to be used and what is the difference between safety applications and standard applications?
  • What is the appropriate safety solution?
  • Is implementing safety technology a complicated process?
  • What are the advantages of using Safety Integrated?
  • Do SIEMENS fail-safe control systems conform to safety standards?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of the connection variants in the safety systems?
  • Is it possible to implement safety applications and standard applications with a bus cable and a CPU?
  • Is it possible to implement a SIL3 application with only one CPU?
  • Can other systems and components be integrated into a safety system in addition to SIMATIC?
