Interlocking

Rail sector


Modern electronic signal boxes, which are designed for regional routes according to the CENELEC standards EN 50126, 50128 and 50129, are therefore based on programmable controllers that provide the highest levels of safety. HIMatrix systems are the most commonly used systems for solutions that do not require redundancy.
In an area with large stations or junctions redundancy is required. HIMax is the first and only nonstop safety system in the world that offers maximum availability by means of scalable redundancy.
Safe redundant connections between HIMax and HIMatrix controllers can be established via HIMA’s safeethernet protocol, simply and fast. Maximum availability and fast response times are thus ensured. HIMA’s solution provides high flexibility thanks to the wide potential for application in various media such as Ethernet cables, fibre optics and SHDSL.
In numerous european countries, HIMA safety controllers are already used in a large variety of interlocking applications.
