RTP announces the introduction of the 3000 TAS (Technologically Advanced System), TÜV approved safety system. The 3000 TAS is approved for SIL-1 to SIL-3 applications and is certified to IEC61508-2010 achieving a new level of availability and integrity. It can be used as a stand-alone safety controller, as a distributed control system for critical applications, or both functions can be combined in a 3000 TAS controller.

 

Excerpt from the Exida White Paper: A Hybrid Fault Tolerant Architecture & New Levels of Performance, Availability and Safety Integrity

"The RTP 3000 SIS System has a hybrid architecture that uses a set of advanced design techniques to provide SIL 3 safety integrity and high availability. Safety integrity and high availability are achieved on a system that also provides an unusual level of architecture flexibility and computing speed (12 msec. scan rates). This combination of safety integrity, high availability, flexibility and performance sets new levels of expectation among safety PLC users.

"A Markov model was developed to analyze the behavior of the RTP 3000 SIS system under fault conditions for two common configurations. Using the Markov models and the failure rates from the FMEDA, example average Probability of Failure on Demand (PFDAVG) and Mean Time To Fail Spurious (MTTFS) values are calculated. The results confirm the level of high safety integrity and high availability achieved by the design."

"The RTP data acquisition cards were installed and have been running in our plant unit 2, since 1987. In that entire running time, on 24x7 basis, we have had only one card failure. This is a remarkable achievement considering the environment these cards have been running in and that, during 2001, we also replaced the computer system, all the display stations and upgraded the network. They ALL became obsolete, but we kept the RTP I/O which is still to this date, flawlessly performing its functions. This was the main reason that when it came time to upgrade the unit 3 plant process computer, the plant decided to stay with RTP. Their equipment is reliable, durable and is withstanding the test of time."

"We looked at several TUV/SIL rated system manufacturers and chose RTP based on the fact that RTP was the only one that could provide everything that our clients were looking for."
