Until now, safety solutions in railway have usually relied on special proprietary technology. The future, however, belongs to modern COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) solutions, which offer clear cost benefits across the entire lifecycle and greater flexibility.
All HIMA solutions are based on proven HIMA safety controllers, featuring intuitive programming and the capacity to easily be networked and integrated with cross-manufacturer communication interfaces. The result: HIMA solutions are always a perfect fit in any technical environment, whether it involves a conversion project or new investment.
As with all HIMA solutions, the foundation of the company’s railway solutions is the ‘Safety. Nonstop.’ principle. HIMA solutions not only create permanent safety, but they also prevent unnecessary stops and help to achieve uninterrupted and reliable system/plant operations.
Together with HIMA application engineers, customers can create future-proof safety solutions for railway, reduce investment and operating costs and simultaneously increase the level of flexibility for future adaptations. In addition, HIMA supports customer engineers with advice and training when switching to modern COTS solutions.
HIMA solutions are certified up to SIL 4 according to CENELEC and up to Category 1 Class B according to DIN EN 61373. They are used for the following safety-critical railway applications:
