Small controllers PNOZmulti 2

Used all over the world – you too can rely on the 2nd generation small controllers PNOZmulti for your automation. As a worldwide safety standard for numerous automation environments and communication systems, the small controller will fit into your system too. High productivity for your plant and machine, user-friendly diagnostics and simple visualisation – with the small controllers PNOZmulti 2 you are making the right decision – guaranteed!. http://www.pilz.com

The modular small controllers PNOZmulti 2 are flexible and can be adapted to your requirements, plus they also fit into the smallest control cabinet. At a minimal width of just 45 mm, you have maximum functionality for monitoring a wide range of safety functions up to PL e EN ISO 13849-1 or SIL CL 3 EN IEC 62061. User-friendly software helps you to configure the hardware and software. You need just one software application from planning to maintenance.

In your application, do you need to monitor whether a movable guard is in a pre-defined position: for example, the packaging material in a packaging machine’s cardboard magazine? If there is sufficient packaging material in the cardboard feed magazine, then it is impossible for the operator to reach into the danger zone and injure themself while the machine is running. The material, such as cardboard for example, is used as a protective measure. Two optical sensors are used to detect whether there is sufficient material in the magazine. If the number of cardboard blanks falls below the permitted amount, the sensors signal this status to the small controller PNOZmulti 2. The outputs on the PNOZmulti 2 shut down the machine until sufficient cardboard is once again in place. If you are looking for a ready-to-use solution, you can use the modular safety relay myPNOZ as an alternative to the PNOZmulti 2. http://www.pilz.com

Safety relay PNOZ s50 for safe brake control

On the safety relay PNOZ s50, temporary overexcitation is followed by voltage reduction, for which parameters can be set. The resulting short ventilation times help to make your application more energy-efficient. On the one hand, safe brake control enables rapid switching in emergency situations. On the other hand, it ensures slow, low-wearing switching in normal operation, thereby reducing maintenance requirements. Applications with safety brakes and holding brakes require reliable brake monitoring. This eliminates all potential hazards for the user – even when the drive is in a de-energised state. With the stand-alone safety relay PNOZ s50, Pilz is offering an economical solution for controlling two safety brakes up to category PL e of EN ISO 13849-1. http://www.pilz.com

Leuze: Optical sensors | Creating tomorrow’s innovations together

Capacitive sensors can detect solid, liquid or granular objects. These sensors can be used to detect highly structured and non-dimensionally stable objects, such as fill levels of liquids or bulk materials in direct contact with the medium or through a non-metallic container wall. They are also suitable for checking completeness. Capacitive sensors function reliably even in very dusty or dirty environments. Different designs and long ranges enable almost all areas of application in industrial automation. https://www.leuze.com/

Inductive sensors are the industry standard for non-contact detection of metallic objects. The Leuze portfolio includes a wide selection of standard and special sensors in a wide variety of designs, which have already proven themselves millions of times over for our customers. In particular, our extremely robust full stainless steel sensors, sensors with extended switching distances or even miniature sensors for extremely cramped installation conditions have already proven themselves many times in demanding applications. https://www.leuze.com/

Ultrasonic technology has a wide range of uses in many industries: An ultrasonic sensor emits a sound pulse and measures the time until the sound pulse reflected from an object returns to the sensor. The distance to the object can be precisely calculated using the principle of transit time measurement. The ultrasonic waves are reflected by the object, completely independent of the type of surface. That’s why sound-reflecting materials – shiny or reflective, transparent or very dark – do not pose a problem for reliable detection. Even products with difficult-to-detect geometries or fill levels of liquids, powders or granules can be checked contactlessly and very precisely using ultrasonic sensors. https://www.leuze.com/

The new cylindrical ultrasonic sensors in robust metal housings are particularly suitable for applications in the packaging or automotive industries. The compact HTU 208 ultrasonic sensors for object detection are characterized by a very narrow design (M8 threaded sleeve). They can also be installed in cramped production environments and detect fill levels with a narrow sound beam even through very small container openings. The HTU 212 buttons in the next larger design (M12) are used in confined environmental conditions when a greater range is required. The switching ultrasonic sensors HTU 218 (M18) are particularly easy to parameterize thanks to an IO-Link interface. https://www.leuze.com/

Safety relay myPNOZ | PT.Felcro Indonesia

In 1987 Pilz patented the first emergency stop relay to protect man and machine. That was a milestone in safety technology. The safety relays PNOZ quickly progressed to be the world’s most commonly used safety relays. The PNOZ brand is now synonymous with safety relays. The safety relays PNOZ monitor safety functions such as emergency stop, safety gates, light barriers, light curtains, two-hand controls, speed, standstill and much more besides. Every day, PNOZ safety relays prove themselves in millions of applications worldwide.

Continuous further development has led from simple devices to the modular safety relay myPNOZ and the configurable small controller PNOZmulti, the global safety standard for machines. The modular safety relay myPNOZ is easy to operate, individually pre-assembled and therefore easy to install, so it complements our existing range of safety relays. If you have to monitor more than 16 safety inputs in a more complex way and need comprehensive diagnostics, we recommend using the configurable small controllers PNOZmulti. They can be freely configured using the configurator. http://www.pilz.com

Protection system PSENvip

The Long-Range version PSENvip R LR is the first and only protection system for press brakes with a protected area of up to 18 metres. This makes it ideal for monitoring special purpose presses such as tandem presses, for example. The installation of PSENvip R LR on existing presses is quick and easy: the transmitter remains the same, you only have to swap the receiver. Monitor your tandem press with just one protection system; there’s no need to combine a mobile protection system and light curtains. http://www.pilz.com

With the Long-Range version you also have a hot-pluggable protection system: If you place two press brakes next to one another, you can simply remove the transmitter and receiver in the centre. The transmitter from machine 1 then works with the receiver from machine 2 – without having to restart! You thus avoid unnecessary downtimes with PSENvip R LR. Furthermore, the Long-Range version of the PSENvip is convincing thanks to its usual high level of robustness.

Safe radar sensor PSENradar

Safe radar sensors are used where optoelectronic sensors reach their limits: rugged environments, such as outdoors or in material processing for example, can be monitored safely using PSENradar. That’s because radar technology (FMCW: frequency modulated continuous wave) ensures high availability even where there are external influences such as dust, dirt, rain, light, sparks or vibrations. http://www.pilz.com

The safe radar sensor PSENradar, in conjunction with the configurable small controller PNOZmulti 2, offers a safe, complete solution for protection zone monitoring – including conformity assessment for the plant or machine. The underlying volumetric monitoring with a frequency of 24 – 24.25 GHz can be used up to SIL 2, PL d and Category 3, which is often a requirement in robot applications. The complete solution also has additional interfaces, such as Ethernet and Profisafe, so making it easy to use the safety radar sensor in retrofit applications. http://www.pilz.com

The appropriate protection zone can be defined for each sensor, based on the size of the area to be monitored. This depends on the positioning, installation height and inclination of the sensor. A warning zone can also be configured in addition to the protection zone. If a person violates the warning zone, this may be signalled by an optical signal, for example. This way, productivity of the plant can always be kept at a high level.
