Full integration with the DCS operating
and monitoring functions

Integration solutions


The advantages of a HIMA solution, including nonstop operation, can be combined with all leading distributed control systems (DCS). DCS SIS integration is achieved through high-capacity, cross-manufacturer communication standards. Based on the extensive integration know-how of our DCS competence team, HIMA assumes responsibility for DCS SIS integration and provides the required functionality (ICSS by HIMA). Even customers working with a main automation contractor (MAC) can benefit from HIMA solutions.

HIMA solutions offer features such as:

Click on one of the DCS manufacturer logos and find out how you can integrate HIMA systems together with that type of DCS.

HIMA Safety Systems can easily be integrated into all leading process control systems.

HIMA DCS Competence Team

All leading control systems are installed at HIMA. The HIMA DCS competence team continuously tests all integration options, thoroughly documents them and develops efficient, pretested configurations. Based on this extensive integration know-how of our DCS competence team, HIMA assumes responsibility for DCS SIS integration and provides the required functionalities (ICSS by HIMA).

HIMA and the MAC concept

Even customers working with a main automation contractor (MAC) can benefit from HIMA solutions. As an independent safety expert, HIMA has for years successfully implemented projects with MACs and DCS manufacturers on a worldwide basis. The only requirement is that your specifications and/or MAC contract does not preclude HIMA solutions.

Cooperation between your MAC and HIMA offers multiple advantages for the project and enhances plant efficiency throughout the entire lifecycle. Your MAC remains your first contact, but HIMA assumes responsibility for DCS SIS integration and provides the required functionality (ICSS by HIMA).

The integration of HIMA solutions into all leading DCS is achieved through cross-manufacturer communication standards, including:

• OPC DA and OPC A&E
• Modbus TCP master & slave
• Modbus RS 485 Master & Slave 
• PROFIBUS DP Master & Slave
• PROFINET IO Controller & Device
• Send & Receive TCP
• HART
• ComUserTask, programmable protocols
