Regardless of plant complexity or size, safety and security are a high priority for the process industry. Siemens SIMATIC PCS 7 provides Safety Instrumented System (SIS) solutions specifically designed to protect your critical assets.
What is SIL? What are process safety lifecycle tools?
Watch our series of Process Safety and Security webinars to learn how to simplify your safety application program and comply with safety standards. These series covers topics such as Burner Management Systems (BMS), Certified PLCs, IPL alarms and more.
Integrated Safety Lifecycle Tools
All Siemens process safety systems are designed and built in accordance to relevant national and international safety standards (ISA, IEC, NFPA, API etc.) to ensure compliance.
Our system benefits include:
Reduce operator error - best-in-class local HMI for better operation and maintenance
Reduce risk - SIL-certified safety library
Improve plant availability - Flexible redundancy options
Achieve functional safety requirements - complete safety lifecycle tools
Safety System Specification
Studies show that incorrect specifications are the number-one cause of process-related accidents. Avoid these unnecessary risks by downloading the Safety Instrumented System (SIS) specification that will help your safety system project move along smoothly.

SIMATIC Safety Matrix: The Safety Lifecycle Management Tool
SIMATIC Safety Matrix, the powerful cause-and-effect software for process automation, allows for significantly faster and more convenient configuration of safety applications. Designed to reduce costs and effort for engineering, commissioning and maintenance, this TÜV-certified safety lifecycle management tool can be used for applications up to SIL 3 according to IEC 61508.
- Flexibility: Can be used in all phases of the safety lifecycle
- Ease of use: Simple, intuitive operation and monitoring with no special programming skills required, making it possible to focus fully on the safety requirements of the plant
- Reduced plant downtime: Events and alarms are transmitted directly to the SIMATIC PCS 7 operator system
Choosing Functional Safety Instrumentation
Certified, prior use or both? Fundamentals of VDI 2180. Can you justify safety instrumentation?
Determining the equipment to use in safety instrumented systems (SIS) and the rules for maintaining them is one of the most difficult and controversial topics in the industrial SIS marketplace. Learn more from Siemens industry experts.
