Omniflex offer safety certified alarm annunciators that perform a vital role in providing a layer of protection, capable of handling complex and unexpected dangerous conditions in accordance with the current safety standards.
Alarm annunciators are an integral part of safety planning, especially in processing plants where alarm conditions can be numerous. An alarm, or a combination of several alarm conditions, often requires a reaction of an operator in order to either investigate the cause of alarms or take the steps required by safety procedures in order to eliminate the condition. It becomes important for critical alarms to not become lost in a flood of less important alarms when a plant upset occurs.
It is a common practice for plants to specify that all safety-related functions meet the requirements of IEC61508, and therefore all safety-related equipment should comply with the SIL requirements of IEC61508. The Omni16 alarm annunciator from Omniflex solves both these requirements by providing guaranteed non-maskable and fast alarm recognition by the operator, in an electronic product certified for use in SIL rated safety systems.
The Omni16 alarm annunciator from Omniflex was one of the first alarm annunciators to be certified to SIL1 in accordance with IEC61508. The Omni16 alarm annunciator has become a standard in many process plants and has been widely proven in critical applications such as the petrochemical and nuclear power industries over many years. The Omni16 family of alarm annunciators meet all the requirements for the modern safety systems.
