Safety system provider, HIMA Paul Hildebrandt GmbH, signed a global framework agreement with automation equipment manufacturer, Pepperl+Fuchs GmbH.

The pact comprises the jointly developed H-system termination boards and associated modules from Pepperl+Fuchs, which connect 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.

HIMA officials said with safety-oriented controllers, an additional isolation level is necessary for channel-wise galvanic isolation or isolation from explosion hazardous zones. This level can end up implemented with cables and barriers from Pepperl+Fuchs when mounted on termination boards.

For each signal type, termination boards and HIMax connector boards can connect using standard system cables. Board design and layout are for cabinet installation in accordance with HIMA specifications.

The H-system isolated barriers can mount on the termination board without tools and are hot swappable. This creates a plug & play solution for using HIMax controllers to process signals from explosion hazardous areas.
