The process industry as well as mechanical and plant engineering are going through the "Safety Era", where SIL (Safety Integrity Level) and PL (Performance Level) values are becoming central. To face all the complex challenges that safety brings to users, JUMO has therefore combined its product and solution expertise in these fields and launched the new brand JSP (JUMO Safety Performance). Along with its own logo, JSP products can be recognized by the identification marking with yellow signal color.
The key element of JUMO Safety Performance is a compact, single-channel safety controller with selectable redundant input signals for the measurand temperature. This controller can achieve SIL 3 or PL e. When combining the JUMO safetyM temperature limiter/safety temperature monitor and certified JUMO sensor technology, the entire SIL chain – consisting of sensor, controller, and actuator – is already calculated and delivered with the appropriate manufacturer's declaration.
JUMO safetyM STB/STW Ex is also suitable for ATEX/IECEx/EAC applications. The device meets the requirements of the Pressure Equipment and Machinery Directive. Another special highlight is that this solution can be achieved with almost all JUMO temperature probe variants.
A complex controller is not required so that no programming knowledge is needed for startup. The advantages for users are clear. They do not need to carry out complicated calculations and they save documentation as well as engineering costs.
JUMO also offers SIL and PL solutions for other measurands such as pressure, level, or flow. Here customers receive all safety-related characteristic values with which the necessary calculations can be carried out. JUMO also offers a range of different high-quality physical transmitters which can be put to use here. This includes the JUMO dTRANS p20 or the electromagnetic flowmeters from the JUMO flowTRANS MAG series.
Other JUMO products that will be offered from now on in the yellow JSP version include the JUMO dTRANS T06 multifunctional four-wire transmitter, the JUMO dTRANS T07 two-channel temperature transmitter, an Ex-i repeater power supply/input isolating amplifier, as well as the JUMO exTHERM-AT explosion-protected surface-mounted thermostat.
In addition to product and solution developments, JUMO Safety Performance focuses on a high level of consulting expertise. JUMO employees have been trained to be experts in JSP products thanks to our internal training concept. These employees have in-depth knowledge in the application of JUMO safetyM, in temperature/pressure/flow measurement technology, in explosion protection, and, of course, in functional safety (SIL and PL). The SIL skills network is available to offer transnational help with its comprehensive expertise.
