High Integrity Protection Systems (HIPS)

Frames High Integrity Protection Systems (HIPS) play a crucial role in site safety. By automatically bringing dangerous processes to a predictable safe state within a defined safety time, our systems protect site personnel, the general public and the environment, along with valuable production assets.
Our HIPS typically use one set of initiators (e.g. voting 2oo3 or 1oo2), a logic solver (controller), and a set of end elements (e.g. valves / pumps) to provide the safeguarding action.
