Automation App Award 2023

Our innovative Key-in-pocket maintenance safeguarding system, which guarantees protection against unintended machine restarts, won third place in the Automations Best Award 2023, in the “Best Solutions” category. Readers of the media concepts “messtec drives” and “inspect” voted in our favour.Also, our new “Safety Distance Calculator” browser tool was awarded second place in the Automation App Award. The decisive factor that led to this development was as follows: “We want to support our customers with competence and the best possible environment” – Tobias Ulmer, Product Manager responsible for safety light curtains. http://www.pilz.com
The tool enables the safety distance for safety light curtains to be calculated simply as well as safely. Users save a significant amount of time and can immediately identify the right safety light curtain for their plant. http://www.pilz.com

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
