|Automated solenoid valves with emergency tripping function by spring force 3/2-way or 5/2-way
|551 and 553 ARCTIC series
|Codes and Standards
|Scope and Result
|Safety function: Move to fail-safe position by spring force, if auxiliary power is cut off or fails. Depending on the piping of installation, the valve will supply the fluid media or vent the fluid media.
The assessment of the Certification Body comes to the result that the valves meet the requirements of IEC 61508 and are therefore suitable for use in a safety instrumented system up to SIL 2 (low demand mode).
Under consideration of the minimum required hardware fault tolerance
HFT = 1 the valves may be used in a redundant architecture up to SIL 3 acc. IEC 61508 and IEC 61511.
|The instructions of the associated Installation, Operating and Safety Manual shall be considered.
