EcoStruxure Triconex Safety View

Oct. 15, 2021
Schneider Electric's EcoStruxure Triconex Safety View allows operators to see the bypass status that impacts the level of risk reduction in place.

The industry’s first dual safety and cybersecurity-certified bypass and alarm management software application, the EcoStruxure Triconex Safety View allows companies to better manage and reduce not only known risks that jeopardize the safety of the operation, but to identify, mitigate, and avoid future risks.

 

The software allows operators to see both the bypass status that impacts the level of risk reduction in place, as well as the critical alarms required to operate the plant safely when risks are high. And because the software has been certified by TÜV Rheinland as  Security Level 1 (SL1) compliant per IEC 62443-4-2 and Systematic Capability 3 (SC3) compliant per IEC 61508 for use in safety-related applications up to Safety Integrity Level 3 (SIL3), it meets stringent requirements for safety, cybersecurity, risk reduction, and continuous operation in the oil and gas, refining, petrochemicals, power, and other high-hazard, risk-intensive industries. 

 

With enhanced digital capabilities, including its ability to extract and textualize real-time operating data, the software provides a better real-time view into the risks that come with system start-ups, shutdowns, and other critical process transitions. By arming operators, maintenance engineers, and plant personnel with the right data at the right time, they can quickly and efficiently bring the plant back to a safe operating state.

 

Because EcoStruxure Triconex Safety View is proven to improve uptime while helping to reduce operating, maintenance, and engineering costs, it provides measurable improvements to the profitability of the operation, as well as quicker ROI and better total cost of ownership.

Improve safety

  • Clear visibility of bypasses in place
  • Secondary authentication of bypass available, ensuring a device is not accidentally placed in bypass (reducing the likelihood of an unplanned trip)
  • No need to access safety system engineering tools to apply bypass
  • Notes can be added for each bypass, aiding shift handover
  • Associated alarms are suppressed to ensure the operator is not distracted by alarms from devices out of services
  • General purpose buttons are available for specific functions e.g. to shut down or isolate a specific piece of equipment

Reduce operational risk

  • Critical alarms are segregated from the myriad of alarms routinely generated
  • Operators have clear visibility of critical alarms with process conditions
  • Each alarm contains detailed information providing greater context for better decision making
  • Alarms can be organized for the optimum operator experience
  • Alarms can be re-activated on shift handover, so the oncoming operators know exactly what they need to manage and pay attention to
  • Different alarm sounds can be configured for different alarm types to enhance operator performance

Certified operation

  • TÜV-certified for use in safety applications, up to Systematic Capability 3 (SC3) according to IEC61508
  • Cybersecurity IEC62443-4-1 and Security 1 (SL1) for software applications according to IEC62443-4-2
  • ISA S18.1 Alarm Functions (Sequence Codes Manual, Automatic, Reset)
