Azbil Corporation (Japan) and HIMA concluded a ‘collaboration agreement’ and have developed a common integrated solution based on open communication standards. The extensive integration testing phase has already been successfully completed. A comprehensive documentation was issued to report the test results. Plant operators benefit from a wide range of advantages resulting from the new combination of innovative Harmonas-DEO control system from Azbil and the high-availability safety systems from HIMA. Increased system availability, enhanced productivity and reduced lifecycle costs are just few examples.

The HIMax and HIMatrix systems from HIMA are integrated in the operating and visualisation function of the Harmonas-DEO control system from Azbil based on open communication standards. This integrated solution offers new features such as the integration of faceplates for operating, monitoring, transferring and visualising diagnostic data, process data and safety-related locking states as well as a maintenance override switch (MOS) and a start-up bypass (SUB). Azbil and HIMA collaborate and expand the global market with this integrated solution.
