INDUSTRY.co.id - Singapore - HIMA Paul Hildebrandt GmbH, world's leading independent provider of smart safety solutions for industrial applications, has been recognized at the prestigious Frost & Sullivan 2020 Asia-Pacific Best Practices Awards for its industry-leading Industrial Process Safety Systems, winning the 2020 Asia-Pacific Industrial Process Safety Systems Product Line Strategy Leadership Award.
HIMA developed the Smart Safety Platform – the world’s first scalable safety platform with built-in automation security. It is the only platform that combines compact SIL 3 applications and highly complex, redundant solutions – offering less complexity in an increasingly complicated world.
The Smart Safety Platform is especially stable and safe because the hardware and software are uniformly tailored to one another and combine to create a closed system. The hardware comprise of the best combination of proven HIMA safety controllers for various industrial, critical infrastructure, transportation and plant systems.
The HIMA engineering software comprise of engineering tool SILworX for clients to develop applications quickly and simply, while reducing training and operation costs. Every HIMA safety controller runs HIMA's own proprietary firmware, minimizing risks in both functional safety and automation security.
And for secure communication, the SafeEthernet protocol connects all HIMA systems securely – regardless of where they are.
"As a leading vendor of process safety systems, HIMA's safety solutions can be deployed independently of any particular DCS (Distributed Control Systems). HIMA believes that the future belongs to digitization across platforms and has developed its Smart Safety Platform, which is the first scalable safety solution available worldwide with built-in automation security. HIMA is also looking to deploy Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies in critical control systems to enable better control for end users and add to the customer service experience through their strong technical teams to resolve key issues in a timely manner," says Krishnan Ramanathan, Industry Manager, Industrial Practice, Frost & Sullivan through a written statement received by Industry.co.id editor on Tuesday (7/14/2020).
"We are grateful and privileged to be recognized by leading analyst advisory firm Frost & Sullivan as a leading vendor in the industrial safety space. We believe safety must be designed with a strategic and sustainable manner, where safety systems are independent from the distributed control system (DCS), with a complete separation rather than just separate layers within the DCS. HIMA improves plant and facility performance by giving owners a complete integration of safety and security,” says Friedhelm Best, Vice President Asia Pacific, HIMA.
