Uniquely fast, uniquely flexible
HIMatrix F series
The safety-related controllers and remote I/O modules of the HIMatrix F series were developed for applications with just a few I/O points and especially for networked and time-critical applications.
The combination of one of the world’s fastest safety controller and the HIMA safety bus, safeethernet, forms the basis for a range of efficient HIMatrix F solutions
The system’s high performance, compactness and ease-of-assembly enable solutions, which were previously performed using relay technology, to now be set up economically, reliably and much more flexibly using control technology.
Combined with our wide range of hardware, this means that our systems can be adapted perfectly to any kind of application – thus creating more efficient solutions.

Maximum safety, scalable availability, highest cost-efficiency: since their launch, the H41q/H51q systems have become THE established standard for safe AND economical solutions in the processing industry. H41q/H51q systems are ideal for small and mid-size safety-critical applications which require high levels of process availability. Success in these systems is based principally on three factors:
H41q/H51q systems are based on what has proven to be the world’s best safety technology. HIMA has installed more than 25,000 solutions and more safety systems than all of its rivals in the global processing industry . It’s the quality that has won the day.
H41q/H51q systems offer the highest level of fault tolerance and therefore process availability. And the best thing is that HIQuad technology enables the systems’ fault tolerance to be adjusted individually, which means that cases of redundancy can always be set up specific to the application – making it more economical. Even in single-channel configurations – non-redundant, that is – the systems can be used up to SIL 3 without time limit.
High adaptive flexibility
H41q/H51q systems are extremely flexible and are easier and therefore efficient to adapt to individual application requirements.
For for small and mid-size number of I/Os
Compact H41q systems for up to 208 I/Os, modular H51q systems for as many as several thousand I/Os
For any type of I/O
Wide range of I/O cards, analog /digital I/O cards, relay cards, counter and thermo-element cards, cards with integrated Ex-separation
For every availability requirement
Invest only in what you need thanks to scalable redundancy. All of the components can be employed single, redundant or mixed – always SIL 3
For centralised or distributed applications
Stand-alone or safe networking via safeethernet.
For any DCS integration
Integrated solutions for all leading control systems – solutions that have proven successful thousands of times over
The H41q/H51q systems utilise the same broad range of I/O cards and are both programmed using
H41q/H51q – the Highlights

Where ultimate safety counts
Planar4 is the only safety system in the world which can be used up to SIL4 in accordance with IEC 61508. Planar4 is the system of choice for automation processes involving extremely high risks to people, machines and the environment – where the utmost safety is of the utmost priority.
High-integrity pressure protection systems
Emergency stop systems on drilling platforms
Extremely time-critical safety circuits
Primary shut-down systems
Planar4 systems are programmed by means of wiring, which makes them extremely robust. Various wiring techniques are used for programming: solder, Termipoint, and Wire Wrap on the backplane bus board.
Input and output statuses, limits and time values can be transmitted via OPC-DA, PROFIBUS DP or MODBUS to control and visualisation systems. Events – HIMA signals with time stamps, that is – are transmitted via RS485 Alarm&Event.
The integrated diagnostic routines ensure rapid error signalling and easy trouble-shooting, even for untrained personnel. Remote diagnosis is possible in conjunction with the communication options.

Improve safety and profitability
with X-OTS HIMax Safety Simulator
The X-OTS HIMax Safety Simulator adds the aspects of safety to the classical OTS (Operator Training System). X-OTS is based on HIMA’s programming tool SILworX and a corresponding number of extended soft controllers. Each HIMax controller will be simulated by one soft controller. Up to 10 soft controller can be run on one PC (performance depending).
Application software can be checked in real scenarios prior to commissioning, leading to shorter commissioning times
Shorter commissioning times lead to an earlier plant start up
Application software can already be optimized prior to start up, leading to a higher plant efficiency already at start-up (instead of optimizing in the running plant)
Avoiding of plant trips by improved behaviour of operators
