SafeEthernet: SIL 3 and SIL 4 (CENELEC) Compliant Data Transmission
Today, more and more plants are built with a distributed structure. To comply with the highest safety standards, you must not only ensure that your safety systems themselves are protected, but also that data transmission is secured. This is why HIMA developed SafeEthernet: a transmission protocol that has now become the standard in many industries and applications. It is based on standard Ethernet infrastructure and fulfils all industry requirements, including SIL 3 and SIL 4 (CENELEC).
Fast and Safe
You use cost-effective standard components from any manufacturer and can continue to use existing networks.
Commissioning can be carried out in stages and customized remote maintenance concepts can be implemented.
SafeEthernet can be integrated into existing Ethernet networks, even if these are used for non-safety-related communication.
Data transmission via SafeEthernet is TÜV-certified to SIL 3 and SIL 4 (CENELEC). A redundant structure is possible, as is reloading during operation.
