Smart Safety Platform
Smart Safety Platform

Hima introduced a Smart Safety Platform under the motto “Discover Safecurity”. This is the world's first integrated solution that combines safety and security by uniformly tailoring hardware and software to each other. That enables operators to significantly reduce the complexity of their systems and buy only what they actually need. The platform also supports integration of existing systems, enabling lower operating costs and very high security of investment.

The Smart Safety Platform concept 


The platform concept works this way: HIMA and the user jointly select the appropriate hardware and software components and install them in the plants. Existing HIMA solutions can continue to be used or be upgraded to the latest generation. By migrating to this platform, plant operators fulfill all essential safety standards. The proprietary self-contained operating system of the safety controllers minimizes the risk of cyberattacks. Backward-compatible software and hardware updates make the system highly future-proof and keep plant safety and security constantly up to date.

Safety and security


The uniform hardware and software basis of the Smart Safety Platform reduces the effort and expense necessary for operation and maintenance of safety systems. It also simplifies extensions and system modifications. Both localized and centralized concepts can be implemented flexibly with the platform. An important component of the Smart Safety Platform is HIMA’s new HIQuad X safety system, which fills the gap between the high-performance HIMax and the HIMatrix, which is designed for smaller applications. All HIMA controllers are now united in the new Smart Safety Platform. They can communicate with each other over SafeEthernet, and they have a uniform operating system and the same programming environment. Plant operators receive a scalable solution that enables them to meet the complete safety and security requirements of a full range of applications, from small individual systems to the complex architectures of large plants, in a need-oriented manner.
