HIMA Paul Hildebrandt GmbH and Pepperl+Fuchs has signed a global framework agreement. It comprises the jointly developed H-system termination boards and associated modules from Pepperl+Fuchs, which are connected through pre-assembled system cables to the connector boards of the HIMax family. The agreement also governs uniform formal and legal aspects for all companies in the HIMA group, including warranty, liability, obsolescence management and uniform commercial conditions.

Udo Brestrich, Purchasing Manager at HIMA, comments: “Pepperl+Fuchs is a leading global manufacturer of industrial sensors and products for explosion protection. They are one of the key suppliers to the HIMA Group. The global framework agreement strengthens our cooperative relationship with Pepperl+Fuchs, and for us it is an important part of maintaining HIMA’s technology leadership in the future.”

With safety-oriented controllers, an additional isolation level is necessary for channel-wise galvanic isolation or isolation from explosion hazardous zones. This level can be implemented with the pre-assembled system cables and H-system isolated barriers from Pepperl+Fuchs mounted on termination boards. For each signal type, termination boards and HIMax connector boards can be connected easily, using tested standard system cables. This eliminates wiring errors and ensures the shortest possible commissioning times. Board design and layout are conceived for cabinet installation in accordance with HIMA specifications.

“Together with HIMA Product Management, Pepperl+Fuchs has played a decisive role in the development of the unique and advantageous termination board solution for HIMax safety controllers. We are pleased to be able to expand this good cooperative relationship to the global level based on the framework agreement”, says Sophie Bothe, Process Automation Sales Director Germany at Pepperl+Fuchs.

The H-system isolated barriers can be mounted on the termination board without tools and are hot swappable. This creates the ideal plug & play solution for using HIMax controllers to process signals from explosion hazardous areas. It is also the most compact solution of its sort commercially available.
