Safety manager field device unit

The field device unit is designed for plants that need to quickly implement integrated safety measures because of stringent safety regulations and compliance standards.

Honeywell's Safety Manager Field Device Unit (FDU), which allows process manufacturers to more easily implement small, standalone safety applications in their facilities. The offering combines Honeywell Process Solutions’ (HPS) Safety Manager platform and Remote Universal Safe I/O into a single, space-friendly unit that meets the Safety standards (IEC61508, IEC61511) for Safety Integrity Level three (SIL-3) out of the box.

The module’s small size makes it ideal for plants that need to quickly implement integrated safety measures for applications such as burner or boiler management systems. This is critical due to increasingly stringent safety regulations and compliance standards, which often require manufacturers to upgrade or even replace existing safety equipment.

In addition, the Field Device Unit has low installation costs since it requires fewer engineering hours at initial implementation and remains cost-effective over the course of its lifecycle. Also, because it arrives certified at SIL-3, the system requires no extra engineering costs to achieve higher certification levels, which reduces associated capital expenditures and the need to certify a system after its arrival.
