Vertigo is a site or enterprise solution for developing, documenting, tracking, proof testing, and maintaining SIS documentation throughout the entire life of the system.
Instrumented Protective Functions (IPFs) can either be entered manually or synchronized from Open PHA Cloud. After selecting the Sensors, Logic Solvers, and Final Elements using either Kenexis Standard Failure Rate Data or your own data, you can perform SIL Verification Calculations in Vertigo.
Vertigo keeps track Safety Requirement Specifications (SRS) and C&E Tables and every protective function, and their status, events, revisions, testing, and bypass authorization. Status is immediately recognizable through the dashboard.
- Extensive equipment failure rate database
- SIL Verification calculation engine
- Enterprise, multi-site, multi-user platform
- Safety Requirements Specifications (SRS) documentation
- Easy access and integration / synchronization with other systems
- Dashboard view of critical information
Vertigo utilizes an extensive database of instrument failure rate data developed over years of experience by Kenexis engineers. This database includes both generic and application specific failure rate data collected from both published industry sources as well as data collected by Kenexis from various client sites worldwide. In addition, vendor specific data is included for most popular makes/models of instruments. Vertigo also allows users to create custom databases specific to their plant or organization.
SIL Verification calculations are easily performed in Vertigo using a simple interface. All calculations performed by the Vertigo calculation engine have been extensively validated and are in conformance with the recommended practice of ISA TR84.00.02 Safety Instrumented Functions (SIF) – Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Evaluation Techniques.
Vertigo ingrates seamlessly with our fault-tree analysis for complex evaluations.
SRS documentation is easily and quickly developed with our intuitive data structure. Simplifying the process of creating SRS by avoiding duplicate entries while providing outputs in a variety of formats which are specific to the needs of the document user. Requirements are collected at the individual instrument level at the SIF level and at the overall system/project level. In addition to the written requirements of the system, Vertigo also automatically creates a compact and efficient functional logic representation of your system through cause and effect diagrams.
