The Siemens Burner Management solution has been designed in accordance with all of the technical requirements listed in both:

NFPA 85 and 86 standards for programmable logic solvers (section 4.11 of NFPA 85 and section 8.3 of NFPA 86)


In addition, all critical BMS functions are managed via

IEC 61508-compliant components up to SIL-3, thereby ensuring safety metrics are met.


In addition, these systems are compliant with

ISA S84.00.01-2004 and IEC 61511.

SIMATIC Burner Management Systems

Improving safety compliance and cost-effectiveness of your BMS

Regardless of the industry, safety must be a foremost concern wherever fuel is burned – furnaces, ovens, kilns, dryers, boilers and other kinds of facilities. Explosions can be deadly, costly and disruptive. Current revisions in U.S. National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards raised burner safety minimums. At the same time, integrations of safety PLCs into burner management systems – at nearly the same cost as regular PLCs – have boosted safety levels even further to meet SIL 2 and SIL 3 requirements. In addition, these advanced systems can offer improved operating efficiency, plus visibility via data feeds to higher-level DCS systems and easy-to-use, human-machine interfaces (HMIs), accessed remotely via tablets and even smartphones. These are among the key benefits upgrading to these systems can provide.
