H41q/H51q Central Components
are in the passive phase since April 1, 2020
For more than 20 years the HIMA Safety Controller HIQuad H41q/H51q has been a reliable product for many applications within the process industry. But each product life cycle makes it necessary to switch to the best available technology at the appropriate time.
That’s why the central components of the H41q and H51q are in the passive phase since 1st April 2020. Affected are the central racks including the central, communication, power supply and coupling modules as well as the corresponding accessories.
The HIQuad I/O modules including field wiring remain unchanged within modernized and function compatible HIQuad X systems.
For passive products, HIMA aims to keep spare parts in stock and provide repair support for at least ten years. Component-related, legal, or normative restrictions may apply. Products entering the passive phase may have limited delivery availability and will not receive further updates with new features or certificates.
HIMA products give you maximum, long-term plant availability. To ensure this, we continually modernize our product portfolio with new technologies. Compatible successor products ensure your safety system continues to operate smoothly many years after installation. This reduces life-cycle costs, avoids unplanned downtime, and ensures investment protection for your assets.
Next Generation HIQuad X is available
