Game changing innovation

The SpeedSys 200 negates the complexity of rack-based systems by delivering the core layer of SIL-rated overspeed protection with a compact architecture. It adapts to market needs by taking scalability to a new level and increasing the accessibility of high integrity safety systems for rotating machinery, without any safety concessions.

A growing global adoption to SIL for both small and large rotating machinery demands innovation on the machine protection market. SpeedSys 200 adapts to these shifting demands with an architecture to suit the technical and financial environment of any rotating machine.  

SpeedSys product line

To complement its product portfolio, Istec is developing a series of advanced products for speed measurements and protection, including:

Istec SpeedMon delivers advanced speed monitoring functions, for conditions like creep, underspeed, reverse rotation and standstill.

Istec SpeedSen is a SIL-certified Hall-effect speed sensor for accurate speed measurements.

Istec Simulator enables software-guided speed simulations for proof testing and commissioning of speed and vibration protection systems. For speed, it supports (3-channel) simultaneous signal testing to enable full proof testing for any voting structure.
