For projects where a physically and functionally segregated safety concept is desired
Able to be interfaced with any process control system, Independent HI can be used with ABB’s Freelance, ControlMaster or Symphony Plus (Harmony and Melody) systems or our heritage (Advant, MOD300) technologies as well as 3rd party control systems or PLC’s.
In addition, connectivity is available for 3rd party process control systems, HMI software and/or process panels (i.e. ABB’s Compact 800 or Panel 800), making Independent HI the perfect SIL3 certified safety system independent of the control system technology or vendor on your site.
