HIMax

HIMax

HIMax is a flexible platform for large, critical production processes that you can never afford to have go down. HIMax adapts to all I/O-count, response-time and fault-tolerance requirements as well as centralised and distributed applications. HIMax delivers availability for life by enabling uninterrupted system operation throughout your plant’s lifecycle. Hardware and software changes can be performed without system interruption.

Typical applications

Each communication module can simultaneously operate up to 6 protocols from the following list:

  • SIL 3 via safeethernet
  • OPC DA and OPC A&E
  • Modbus TCP Master and Slave
  • PROFINET IO Controller & Device, PROFIsafe
  • Modbus RS 485 Master and Slave
  • PROFIBUS DP Master and Slave
  • Send and Receive TCP
  • ComUserTask (CUT), user-programmable port RS422, RS485, UDP, TCP
  • HART over IP (V7)

Planar4

Planar4

Where Ultimate Safety Counts
Planar4 systems integrate inputs, logic processing and outputs on every module. The application-specific programming of the systems is accomplished without software, but instead with various wiring techniques such as solder, Termipoint or Wire Wrap on the backplane bus board. All modules can be used in a redundant structure in order to increase availability.

Typical applications

  • High Integrity Pressure Protection Systems (HIPPS)
  • Emergency stop systems on drilling platforms
  • Extremely time-critical safety circuits
  • Primary shutdown systems
  • Communication options
  • OPC DA
  • RS485 Alarm & Event
  • PROFIBUS DP
  • Modbus RTU
