Process Safety & Machine Safety System | HIMatrix

Supplier: Hima

Process Safety & Machine Safety System related controllers and remote I/O modules of the HIMatrix series were developed for applications with just a few I/O points and especially for networked and time-critical applications.


Process Safety & Machine Safety System | HIMatrix

The combination of the world’s fastest safety controller and the fastest safety bus, safeethernet, forms the basis for a range of efficient HIMatrix solutions

The system's performance, compactness and ease-of-assembly enable solutions, which were previously performed using relay technology, to now be set up economically, reliably and much more flexibly using control technology.

Safety-related networking on the basis of safeethernet offers considerable performance and flexibility advantages over solutions using conventional safety controllers and buses.

Combined with our wide range of hardware, this means that our systems can be adapted perfectly to any kind of application - thus creating more efficient solutions.
