EXPANSION modules for data transfer via Ethernet are now available for the Pilz multifunctional safety system, PNOZmulti, which manages both standard control functions and safety functions economically.
The PNOZmulti expansion modules communicate via the popular Profinet/IO and EtherNet/IP or Modbus/TCP protocols, reaping cost savings and enabling user-friendly diagnostics.
Using the expansion modules, diagnostic data and controller information can be downloaded from PNOZmulti to the control system via Ethernet, minimising wiring.
A module for a separate 24V supply can be inserted between the base unit and expansion module. Because the expansion modules are guaranteed to have a supply voltage independent of the control system, availability of the bus connection is enhanced.
