Although the primer targets safety applications and installations like Emergency Shutdown Systems, it’s noted more than 90% of all applications are not safety-related. Those personnel are now using SIL data as an indicator for reliability: The better the numbers — the more reliable an instrument. The primer also provides analysis data on specific SIL-suitable products from this manufacturer.
