PILZ Australia will be showcasing a range of leading-edge safe automation technologies at two forthcoming exhibitions -- National Manufacturing Week (May 28-31, Sydney) and at Automate (Oct 15-18, Melbourne).
Pilz will highlight its new safe non-contact sensors.
Used in situations where interlock space is at a premium, or in food manufacturing where food, heat and sterilising materials must not affect the safety device or be retained by it.
The Pilz safe sensor is compatible with existing Pilz safety relays and also with the programmable safety systems and SafetyBUSp, the Pilz safe field bus system.
Additionally Pilz will be releasing two new versions of the PSS programmable safety systems, expanding the range up to 10 different models.
The new versions will provide increased local I/O (up to 76 points) on a compact system and a version with SafetyBUS p control plus an additional ethernet interface.
Finally the safetyBUS p system has been expanded with new modules that increase its flexibility.
The "SafetyBUS p router" allows for stub lines on the bus to run at their own bus speed, without compromise from the overall bus speed.
The "SafetyBUS p bridge" allows for two or more complete bus systems to be connected thus allowing for multiplication of the safety I/O on a network.
The "Active Junction" allows for IP67 connection of devices such as light curtains and robots which already have SafetyBUS p connectivity on board. Pilz Australia 03 9544 6300.
