WATERTOWN, Mass., April 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- United Electric Controls
has introduced theOne Series Safety Transmitter- the first SIL 2-certified

overcomplicated process transmitters that must be adapted for safety use, the
One Series is engineered to protect, giving safety teams simple setup and
fast, safer and affordable performance - from the start.

The new One Series Safety Transmitter is available in versions that monitor
temperature and pressure.

"Its features include an exclusive design that means fewer nuisance trips and
greater safety and productivity, an internal high-speed safety relay for the
fastest emergency shutdown, greater affordability than adapting a process
transmitter for safety applications, and a higher safe failure fraction that
simplifies SIL achievement," said Wil Chin, Vice President of Marketing and
Business Development, United Electric Controls.

The One Series transmitter provides 4-20 mA NAMUR standard output with
exclusive "I Am Working(TM)" diagnostics. A unique, high-speed safety relay
output is incorporated for local alarm or emergency shutdown. Discrete
outputs deliver diagnostics and relay status voting logic input to the safety
PLC to determine appropriate action. The transmitter is certified for use in
SIL 2 safety instrumented systems, and is capable of SIL 3 per IEC 61508. It
has configurable self-diagnostics and achieves a safe failure fraction of
98.5%. Instrument response time is<100 milliseconds.

Additional features include:

* A large digital display that provides process variable, status,
self-diagnostics and field programming information
* 100% programmable solid-state relay (switch set point&deadband)
* Effectively replaces a gauge, transmitter and a switch to reduce potential
leak paths
* Certified for use in SIL 2 plant safety applications with FMEDA report
available
* Worldwide hazardous location approvals for Class I, Divisions 1&2 (Zones
1&2)
