Custom-fit safety for prototypes

Three safety functions were to be reproduced on the inline measurement system– emergency stop, a safety gate required for setup and maintenance work, and a safety flap to prevent intervention in the upstream machine. In safety technology terms the safety solution also had to harmonise with the upstream and downstream production process. The safety solution was configured completely via the intuitive online tool myPNOZ Creator, which makes the configuration simple to create. The Pilz solution meets all the requirements. And also saves time: up to one hour per machine for each commissioning task, which otherwise would have to have been implemented on site, involving a great deal of programming and wiring, plus a subsequent I/O check to validate the entire system.
