HIMA introduces Smart Safety Platform

March 28, 2018 - At this year's ACHEMA trade fair in Frankfurt (Germany), HIMA is exhibiting their Smart Safety Platform under the motto “Discover Safecurity”. This is an integrated solution that combines safety and security by uniformly tailoring hardware and software to each other. The platform also supports integration of existing systems.

The platform concept works this way: HIMA and the user jointly select the appropriate hardware and software components and install them in the plants. Existing HIMA solutions can continue to be used or be upgraded to the latest generation. The proprietary self-contained operating system of the safety controllers is designed to minimize the risk of cyberattacks. Backward-compatible software and hardware updates are intended make the system highly future-proof and keep plant safety and security constantly up to date

The uniform hardware and software basis of the Smart Safety Platform simplifies extensions and system modifications. Both localized and centralized concepts can be implemented with the platform.

An important component of the Smart Safety Platform is HIMA’s new HIQuad X safety system, which fills the gap between the HIMax and the HIMatrix, which is designed for smaller applications. All HIMA controllers are now united in the Smart Safety Platform. They can communicate with each other over SafeEthernet, and they have a uniform operating system and the same programming environment. Plant operators receive a scalable solution that enables them to meet the complete safety and security requirements of a full range of applications, from small individual systems to the complex architectures of large plants, in a need-oriented manner.
