Metrix Instrument Company announces that its High-Temperature Velocity Sensor, 5485C, has been certified by H-ON Consulting, an international provider of technical and engineering services for the safety and reliability of industrial products based out of the US, as compliant with the requirements of the international safety standard Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 2 and SIL 3 capable.

The purpose of the SIL certification is to measure safety system performance and the likelihood of failure. Achieving SIL 2, and SIL 3 capable, based on the IEC6158 Functional Safety Standard signifies that the 5485C has been thoroughly assessed and is a reliable electronic device ready to use in all industries.

Obtaining SIL 2, and SIL 3 capable, proves that the 5485C is now ready for use in safety system situations. The 5485C is designed to meet the expected functionality requirements using safety principles and introducing measures to limit or detect failures. All parts of the 5485C are thoroughly defined and designed to avoid systematic failures, and the dangerous failure modes are identified and eliminated as much as possible.

Engineering also outlines the production steps, tests procedures to be completed and the criteria to define if each sensor meets the expected requirements. A high number of safety requirements are necessary in the gas, chemical and oil industry. For these industries, safety is of serious importance, requiring a high level of safety for their control and monitoring systems.

About 5485C

The Metrix 5485C is a High-Temperature Velocity Sensor suitable for environments with temperatures up to 375°C. It is designed for gas turbines and other machinery with high surface temperatures where a velocity signal is desired. The Metrix 5485C is standard equipment on most heavy-duty industrial gas turbines. The sensor’s moving-coil design requires no external power as it self-generates a signal proportional to vibration velocity.
