Chemical Industry Solutions

For customers in the chemical industry — in plant environments where moisture, corrosion and extreme operating temperatures are normal — R. STAHL provides electrical and lighting solutions that heighten operating efficiencies and ensure consistent, reliable data in harsh and hazardous environments.

Take R. STAHL’s IS1 Remote I/O interfaces, for example. With multiple protocols, such as Hart, Profibus, Fieldbus and DeviceNet, they automate facility systems to drive enhanced profitability.

Safety, Integrity and Heightened Efficiency

Optimal safety, of course, is built into every lighting product and automation system. Safety Integrity Level (SIL) ratings are a essential consideration in every automation system, both for functional security and explosion protection.

“With our initial installation, we were probably the largest of STAHL’s U.S customers for hazardous-area remote I/O products, and we remain one of the largest.  That’s the story in a nutshell. Our plant – we manufacture active pharmaceutical ingredients – has two automation control systems, Emerson Process Management’s DeltaV and Rockwell's  PLC/SCADA.  STAHL’s is the standard hazardous-area I/O system for both. I like STAHL’s  product range, I like their quality and innovativeness, and I like it that I can talk to someone who’s knowledgeable and can give technical assistance if I need it. Early on, our due diligence showed us that STAHL made superior hazardous-area products in the I/O market. They’ve not disappointed us in nearly five years. Really, I don’t know why anyone would choose hazardous-area I/O components other than STAHL’s.”
