SOME ASPECTS OF OPERATIONAL RELIABILITY OF THE JET CENTRAL INTERLOCK AND SAFETY SYSTEM (CISS) IN THE PERIOD MARCH 1984 TO DECEMBER 1986
The Central Interlock and Safety System (CISS) provides basic safety functions for the JET plant. It monitors the status of emergency push buttons, access doors and plant equipment and takes corrective shutdown actions in the case that plant conditions are not compatible with safe operation. CISS consists of a hierarchical network of PLCs paralleling the CODAS architecture. It has been successfully in operation since June 1983 and has intervened many times and halted operation to protect JET from (further) damage or personnel against danger.
