February 16, 2017 - HIMA Paul Hildebrandt GmbH has signed a global framework agreement with Mannheim-based automation equipment manufacturer Pepperl+Fuchs GmbH. It comprises the jointly developed H-system termination boards and associated modules from Pepperl+Fuchs, which are connected through pre-assembled system cables to the connector boards of the HIMax family. The agreement also governs uniform formal and legal aspects for all companies in the HIMA group, including warranty, liability, obsolescence management and uniform commercial conditions.
With safety-oriented controllers, an additional isolation level is necessary for channel-wise galvanic isolation or isolation from explosion hazardous zones. This level can be implemented with the pre-assembled system cables and H-system isolated barriers from Pepperl+Fuchs mounted on termination boards. For each signal type, termination boards and HIMax connector boards can be connected easily, using tested standard system cables. This eliminates wiring errors and ensures the shortest possible commissioning times. Board design and layout are conceived for cabinet installation in accordance with HIMA specifications.
The H-system isolated barriers can be mounted on the termination board without tools and are hot swappable. This creates ta plug & play solution for using HIMax controllers to process signals from explosion hazardous areas.
The HIMA Group is an independent specialist in solutions for safety-critical applications. For over 45 years oil, gas, chemical, pharmaceutical and energy-producing companies have relied on HIMA products, services and consulting to provide uninterrupted plant operations and protection for people and the environment.Learn More
