Protection Systems / Triple Channel (TMR) for 2oo3 solutions

“State of the art” Overspeed Protection Systems with triple channel redundancy (TMR)

The focus of our production is in monitoring and protection systems for the protection of all type of “Rotating Equipment” and “Turbomachinery”. This includes the protection of turbines, compressors and expanders against overspeed trip and other criteria such as emergency stop, overpressure and overheating. Our claim is to be the world’s technological market leader in this field.

BRAUN Protection Systems with their TMR architecture monitor this equipment and guarantee the trouble-free operation of safety-critical applications “Rotating Equipment”. To ensure the safety of plant and personnel, this may be implemented with security level SIL3.

Single Channel devices utilizing 1oo1 or 1oo2 do not ensure continued operation of the monitored machinery. In such cases, fault detection results in operational shutdown.

However, with Triple Channel redundancy incorporating 2oo3 evaluation, this is not the case. When system shutdown is not an option, our globally unique and true 2oo3 architecture provides the most comprehensive protection against spurious alarm signals and thus ensures continuous operation. This concept incorporates the monitoring of each trip criterion within each of the three Monitors in 2oo3, not only for the complete system. Integrated and sophisticated self-tests guarantee stable and continuous availability of the protection system.

Products of our competitors may release an unjustified shutdown of your machines – our systems keep your machines up and running.
