WATERTOWN, Mass., 2014-04-09 10:00 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
United Electric Controls has introduced the One Series Safety Transmitter -- the
first SIL 2-certified transmitter designed solely for safety system
applications. Unlike costly, overcomplicated process transmitters that must be
adapted for safety use, the One Series is engineered to protect, giving safety
teams simple setup and fast, safer and affordable performance -- from the
start.

The new One Series Safety Transmitter is available in versions that monitor
temperature and pressure. 

'Its features include an exclusive design that means fewer nuisance trips and
greater safety and productivity, an internal high-speed safety relay for the
fastest emergency shutdown, greater affordability than adapting a process
transmitter for safety applications, and a higher safe failure fraction that
simplifies SIL achievement,' said Wil Chin, Vice President of Marketing and
Business Development, United Electric Controls. 

The One Series transmitter provides 4-20 mA NAMUR standard output with
exclusive 'I Am Working(tm)' diagnostics. A unique, high-speed safety relay
output 
is incorporated for local alarm or emergency shutdown. Discrete outputs deliver
diagnostics and relay status voting logic input to the safety PLC to determine
appropriate action. The transmitter is certified for use in SIL 2 safety
instrumented systems, and is capable of SIL 3 per IEC 61508. It has
configurable self-diagnostics and achieves a safe failure fraction of 98.5%.
Instrument response time is <100 milliseconds. 

Additional features include:

  -- A large digital display that provides process variable, status,
     self-diagnostics and field programming information
  -- 100% programmable solid-state relay (switch set point & deadband)
  -- Effectively replaces a gauge, transmitter and a switch to reduce potential
     leak paths
  -- Certified for use in SIL 2 plant safety applications with FMEDA report
     available
  -- Worldwide hazardous location approvals for Class I, Divisions 1 & 2
     (Zones 1 & 2)
