Fuse and Power Distribution Module
Fuse and Power Distribution Module

HIMA presents the new fuse and power distribution module K 7217. The new development offers numerous advantages, including a more compact power distribution, a higher number of available slots, and particular suitability for integration with HIMA's flexible and scalable safety-related control system HIQuad X. The K 7217 module has also been ATEX and IECEx certified, an additional benefit for its users.

Compact design with more slots

The module enables flexible fuse protection for up to 30 individual circuits with circuit breakers or electronic circuit protectors, where a monitoring contact signals when they have tripped. Two separate groups of 15 individual circuits can be secured as well. The device is operated with a maximum current of 150 A or 2 x 75 A and is designed for 24 VDC or 48 VDC (SELV/PELV). Thanks to the large number of slots, compact power distributions can be achieved in existing plants as well as in new power distribution systems. The K 7217's 30 slots well exceed the 18 slots capacity of its predecessor. The advantage: users can save a significant amount of space in control cabinets. The compact, 19-inch mounting frame ensures particularly easy installation and time savings.

Ideal for use with HIQuad X and in explosion protected areas

Being mounted in a 19-inch frame, the K 7217 is particularly suitable for use with the safety-related HIMA system HIQuad X. This flexible and scalable control system is a further development of HIQuad, which has been successfully used for over 30 years in numerous applications within the process industry. With HIQuad X, plant operators have the best requirements for upgrading their plants to the latest standards for functional safety (IEC 61511) and cybersecurity (IEC 62443). Another benefit: the K 7217 has ATEX and IECEx certification, which means that it can be used in EX zone 2. Plant operators have thus a fuse and power distribution module which is not only provided with significantly more slots, but can also be used very flexibly for circuit protection in existing plants and in modernization projects.
