ETC6000 Burner Controls Certified
for use in S.I.L.3 Loop
The ETC6000 Series of Electronic Burner Controls have been certified for inclusion in a S.I.L.3 (Safety Integrity Level) loop.
The ETC6000 range of integrated burner controllers, fuel air ratio controllers and ancillary equipment that includes dedicated servo motors and process sensors have been independently tested and certified to conform to the requirements of EN 61508 (2001).
ETC customers had identified that EN 61508 (2001) conformity was being increasingly specified in contracts. In response to this feedback and the Company’s continual commitment to meeting its customer needs, a special project was instigated to assess the viability of gaining EN 61508 (2001).
Energy Technology & Control Managing Director, Martin Thirsk commented ‘ETC is delighted to be able to offer burner controls suitable for inclusion in a S.I.L.3 loop. Our customers can now select ETC burner controls where the contract specifies equipment must be suitable for inclusion in a SIL 3 loop. We believe that the ETC6000 Series is the only range of dedicated burner control equipment that meets the EN 61508 (2001) standard to this safety integrity level’
