How can we use ISA100 in safety and process applications with regulations written for wired technology? (September 2, 2020)

This webinar describes the ISA100 standard and applications in general and the possibilities of using it for SIL2 wireless gas detection, including real life examples.

The standards are often written for wired devices. This includes segregation, cable routing, redundancy, and many more topics. In the final part of this presentation, we will offer thoughts and suggestions on the challenge of applying these standards to wireless solutions.

Key Discussion Points:

  • Making systems robust while combining process and safety in a structured manner.
  • How can we as ISA100 members work with the industry to adopt standards and technology? (This is important for end users to ensure safe operations and to get cost efficient solutions).
