HIMA has been one of the first manufacturers to offer SIL4-standard controllers compliant with CENELEC. Today they are used by 50 partners in over 30 countries. The controllers are part of the “Smart Safety Platform” which is the first comprehensive solution in the world to combine safety and security. The hardware and software components in the platform are uniformly tailored to each other. HIMA's COTS controllers make it possible to realize safety solutions for signals, level crossings and rolling stock cost-effectively, easily and quickly. Another benefit of the platform is the extremely high level of security – a crucial factor at a time when the digitization of the rail industry is gaining pace around the world.
Irrespective of whether a controller is central or decentralized, redundant or not, the COTS components from HIMA guarantee reliable and continuous operation for safety-critical railway applications such as electronic signaling technology, level crossings, sensor-monitored door opening systems, electronically controlled slide and wheel slip protection, safety controllers, remote control, safe train movement and much more.
