HIMA Paul Hildebrandt GmbH has signed a global framework agreement with automation equipment manufacturer Pepperl+Fuchs GmbH. 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.

According to HIMA, 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 cables and barriers from Pepperl+Fuchs when mounted on termination boards. For each signal type, termination boards and HIMax connector boards can be connected using standard system cables. Board design and layout are conceived for cabinet installation in accordance with HIMA specifications.

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.
