    ProTech™ Platform Offers Low Cost Safety Systems and Meets All API-612 and API-670 Specifications 

    Woodward’s IEC61508 SIL-3 certified ProTech safety and machinery protection platform leverages decades of pedigree and meets API specifications. The platform ranges from simplex (ProTech-SX) to full TMR based control (ProTech TPS). ProTech TPS monitors up to 10 different machinery sensors/devices, providing full protection for your equipment. This platform leverages decades of experience from Woodward’s ProTech203 platform. Many improvements have been made to the platform to make it easier to use, maintain, customize and standardize. In addition, security functionality has been implemented to address cyber security concerns.

    Process Safety Applications 

    While the ProTech platform has historically been used to protect against overspeed of machinery, the ProTech-SX and ProTechTPS incorporate the ability to independently monitor critical process variables. ProTech-SX monitors up to 7 independent analog or discrete inputs. ProTechTPS (Woodward's triple modular redundant unit) monitors up to 10 analog or discrete inputs per module. The increased functionality allows the ProTech to function as a safety programmable logic controller (PLC) in multiple industries including (but not limited to): chemical, oil and gas, refining, pulp and paper, food and beverage, mining and metals, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, waste and waste water, and cement and glass.
