The global market demands ever-shorter innovation cycles and increasingly flexible production processes. This means that modular automation is entering process industries further and faster than ever, because in smart plants, it ensures that products can be made more efficiently and makes facilities easier to adapt to changing user requirements. This also goes for functional safety systems and facility availability. HIMA smart solutions combine functional safety with IT security, and that constitutes an essential prerequisite for digital transitions. Thus safety systems help to ensure that human and material resources alike enjoy optimum protection, even in our digital era.
In Hanover, HIMA portrays the concept of modular automation via a safety control system that stands out thanks to its considerable processing power, multiple encoder interfaces and granular architecture. The control system, which is certified up to SIL 3, reduces component requirements (for example, no intelligent bus coupling modules are needed), cuts design and engineering outlays and minimizes sources of errors. What is more, it facilitates extensions or modifications during operation.
