safety instrumented system

A system that protects a manufacturing or operating process. Conforming to the IEC 61511 or 61508 standards, such a system is designed to shut itself down or change to a reduced operational state in the event of failure or hazardous situation. Also called "ESD system," "emergency shutdown," "safety shutdown" and "emergency trip system." See safety.
