PILZ Safe Automation will release two new products designed to substantially reduce the wiring requirements in electronic safety systems at National Manufacturing Week 2006, to be held at Sydney's Darling Harbour from May 30 to June 2.
The new Pilz products on show at Stand 3204 are designed to simplify the installation of the lifesaving electronic safety systems that safeguard machinery.
Pilz's PSS universal modular remote I/O (input/output) safety and standard system is said to eliminate the need for additional standard I/O or dedicated safety remote modules, streamlining networking and simplifying programming.
Also helping to reduce wiring and installation costs are new light curtains from Pilz that connect directly to the safe open field bus SafetyBUS p, removing the need for decentralised safety I/O modules in a control cabinet.
The PSSuniversal and new light curtains join Pilz's range of automation safety systems, which includes Programmable Safety Systems (PSS), the PNOZ multi safety controller, touch screen operator interfaces, safety relays and devices such as emergency stops and safety gate switches.
Pilz products can be used in industries from airports to power generation plants and on machinery as diverse as fairground attractions and automated brick stackers.
