German term or phrase:Prozesssicherungsystem
Can anyone explain the difference between Prozesssicherung und Prozessleitsystem. cf. Das Prozesssicherungssystem und dessen Verknuepfungen zum Prozessleitsystem... or Die Notausschaltungen muessen ueber das Prozesssicherungssystem erfolgen..
Explanation: A bit more context would be helpful, but I base my interpretationon the word 'Prozessleitsystem' (Process Control System).
'Sicherung' is related to 'sichern' (guard, safguard, secure, protect) and thus it could have the meaning of 'making safe' ('Sicherheit').
The decisive point for me is the 'Notausschaltung' (Emergency off), which is generally related to safety issues.

Explanation: I'm just proposing this because Prozesssicherungssystem is probably quite an exotic term. It doesn't really google. But Prozesssicherheit is process reliability and the system in question is quite likely a monitor that checks relevant parameters for plausibility.
