EMC Testing of Safety Systems for the Oil and Gas Industry
With many years EMC testing experience we have supported the oil and gas industry in achieving compliance, increasing safety and reliability.
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) can cause major safety implications for the oil and gas industry.
Offshore platforms have safety systems that monitor, provide, receive and interpret signals from sensors and other integrated systems for unsafe conditions. Systems and plant will shut down in the event of unsafe conditions detected.
If these safety systems were to fail due to the presence of RF energy this could pose a substantial threat to personnel safety and add to the already hazardous industrial working environment and remote offshore location.
Safety and reliability elements are important and time to market is vital. RN Electronics can help you achieve and maintain compliance against numerous requirements and work with you on complex projects.
We can test to all of the following standards:
Safety-related systems and equipment performing safety-related functions
Fire detection and fire alarm systems
EN 13611 up to SIL 3
Safety and control devices for burners and appliances burning gaseous and/or liquid fuels
Electrical equipment for furnaces and ancillary equipment
Test for immunity to conducted, common mode disturbances 0 Hz to 150 kHz
Automatic electrical controls
Automatic burner control systems for burners and appliances burning gaseous or liquid fuels
Equipment intended to perform functions in a safety-related system in industrial locations
Voltage dips, short interruptions and voltage variations on d.c. input power port immunity tests
