Maintain Control – Even in the Face of Danger
Emergency Shutdown: Safety in Critical Situations
The processes in your industrial plants need to run safely – every day, even in the event of danger. To reliably protect people and the environment, you need an emergency shutdown system (ESD) that works constantly in the background. A system that does everything necessary to defuse a critical situation and ensure safe operation. A system that increases the availability of your plant and shuts it down in the event of danger.
You need an emergency shutdown system on which you can rely 100 percent. Whether HIMax, HIMatrix, HIQuad, or Planar4, all controllers from HIMA have one thing in common: As ESDs, they enable you to safeguard all of your processes. Rely on HIMA's safety expertise – and be on the safe side in any dangerous situation.
You Can Use These HIMA Controllers as Emergency Shutdown Systems
HIMatrix is the safety platform for networked and time-critical applications. The systems can be used as standalone devices or in distributed applications. They are specifically developed for applications with few inputs and outputs per location. For example, they are used in the rail industry as emergency shutdown systems. Here, HIMatrix can be used for all applications up to SIL 4 (CENELEC).
HIMax is a high-performance, uninterrupted safety controller for challenging applications. The SIL 3 platform protects your safety-critical production processes and makes your plants more profitable. One of the potential applications for HIMax is as an emergency shutdown system for protecting depolymerization reactors. Here, HIMax can be used for all applications up to SIL 4 (CENELEC).
HIQuad is a flexible, scalable safety controller for a wide range of applications. The SIL 3 certified safety controller protects both central and distributed applications equally – and with the highest level of fault tolerance. It can be used as an emergency shutdown system to protect various industrial plants and systems, including tank farms and boilers.
Planar4 is a safety controller for applications requiring the highest safety level, and it is the only SIL 4 safety controller on the market. It is hardwired, extremely robust, and highly resilient – and is used as the emergency shutdown system on drilling rigs, for example.
