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.
