Description / Abstract:

This standard provides design criteria for controls and monitoring instrumentation necessary to shut down a reactor and maintain it in a safe shutdown condition from Outside the control room. The design criteria require that: (a) specific controls and monitoring instrumentation be provided; (b) these controls be installed at a location (or locations) that is physically separate from the control room and cable spreading- areas; (c) simultaneous control from both locations be prevented by devices for transfer of control from the control room to the remote location(s); and (d) the remote controls be used as a defense-in-depth measure in addition to the control room shutdown controls and as a minimum provide for one complete channel of shutdown equipment.
