AB  - Personnel safety system for particle accelerator facility involves different devices to monitor gates, shielding doors, dosimetry stations, search and emergency buttons. In order to achieve the proper reliability, these systems are developed compliant with functional safety standards involving stable technologies like relays and, recently, PLC. This work will report benchmark of a new FPGA-based system, developed at INFN-LNF, from the design to the validation phase of the prototype currently operating inside the linac bunker of Dafne. In order to achieve the compliance with functional safety standard (IEC-61508), NCRP report 88 on "Radiation Alarms and Access Control Systems" and ANSI report 43 on "Radiation Safety for the Design and Operation of Particle Accelerator", this novel instrument has been designed capable of: devices monitoring in real-time, dual modular redundancy, fail-safe, fool-proof and multi-node architecture on optical link. The aim of this project is to illustrate the feasibility of FPGA technology in the field of personnel safety and develop a standard solution for other fields like the machine protection.
