PMCtendo DD – Servo amplifier from PILZ

The PMCtendo SZ synchronous motor from Pilz is designed specifically for on-board axes and installations where space is limited. It is known for its extremely smooth running characteristics, which is crucial in applications where precision and low vibration are important. Operates on synchronous motor principles, ensuring precise control and synchronization with the drive system. http://www.pilz.com

Suitable for installation in confined spaces, making it ideal for applications where space is limited or where a compact motor is necessary. Known for its extremely smooth running, which is beneficial for applications requiring low vibration and high precision. Typically used in on-board axes, which implies it can be integrated into machinery and equipment where mobility or compactness is a consideration. Safety solution provider since 2011

Pilz is known for its quality and reliability in automation technology, ensuring that the PMCtendo SZ meets rigorous standards for performance and durability. PMCtendo SZ synchronous motor combines compactness with smooth operation, catering to applications where both space constraints and high performance are critical factors.

PSENslock – Safety locking devices – Pilz

The PSENslock is a safety locking device commonly used in industrial settings to ensure the safety of machinery and equipment. It features electromagnetic guard locking, which means it uses an electromagnetic field to lock and unlock the guard. This ensures that the guard remains securely closed during operation, preventing access to hazardous areas.

The safety switch and actuator are integral components of the PSENslock system. The safety switch is typically installed on the guard, while the actuator is mounted on the machine frame. When the guard is closed, the actuator aligns with the safety switch, allowing the PSENslock to detect that the guard is properly closed and engage the electromagnetic lock. http://www.pilz.com

Safety relays | MyPNOZ

Once everything is tested and working correctly, finalize the project. Generate any necessary documentation for installation and maintenance purposes. Implement the designed safety solution in your physical setup according to the documentation generated. Conduct thorough testing of the implemented safety solution to ensure it meets safety standards and regulations. Obtain any necessary certifications for compliance.

Determine the outputs needed for each safety zone. Outputs may include control signals for door locks, machine stop signals, or other safety-related actions. Ensure that each output is associated with the corresponding safety zone. Set up the logic for each safety zone independently. Determine the safety functions required for each zone, such as Emergency Stop, Guard Monitoring, or Two-Hand Control. Configure the logic to implement these safety functions based on the inputs and outputs assigned to each zone.

mplement interlocking logic between safety zones to prevent conflicting safety actions. For example, ensure that activating the Emergency Stop in one zone deactivates the outputs of other zones to prevent unintended machine movements. Test and simulate the logic for each safety zone to verify its behavior under different scenarios. Use the simulation feature in myPNOZ Creator to identify and address any potential safety risks or issues.

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
