A new, flexible safety system simplifies plant modernization

| By Chemical Engineering

The new, flexible and scalable HIQuad X (photo) safety system fits into this company’s Smart Safety Platform, which unifies all of its safety systems. Hardware and software are closely aligned. Plant operators thus receive a scalable solution that they can use to cover the complete safety and security requirements for a wide range of small- and large-scale applications. The HIQuad X system also enables the use of SIL 3 modules with integrated intrinsic safety (Ex protection). Users no longer need a separate isolation amplifier for their intrinsically safe SIL circuits. The benefits of the diagnostics provided can therefore be utilized at the field-device level without any losses. — HIMA Paul Hildebrandt GmbH, Brühl, Germany
