Uniquely fast, uniquely flexible

HIMatrix F series


The safety-related controllers and remote I/O modules of the HIMatrix F series were developed for applications with just a few I/O points and especially for networked and time-critical applications. 

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

The system's high 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.

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.
