WITH just a mouse, anyone can configure complex safety systems using the soon to be released Pilz PNOZmulti.
The new Pilz PNOZmulti safety relay features a windows-style PC interface that allows users to simply "drag and drop" different safety functions into place and enter the operating parameters.
No programming expertise is needed to configure a system controlling up to 14 safety functions, such as safety gates, light curtains and e-stop buttons.
The chosen configuration is then downloaded from the PC to a smart card, which can be used to transfer the information to multiple machines.
Apart from ease of use, PNOZmulti's benefits are reduced wiring, swift commissioning, diagnostic functions for rapid troubleshooting and much lower risks of error.
The PNOZmulti is also highly flexible. Because all the safety functions are digitally controlled, changes to the system can be made by simply editing the system logic, avoiding costly rewiring.
Further expansion of the line and the addition of new safety measures are easily accommodated, since it allows for the simple installation of eight extra input/output module combinations with minimal expense.
The expansion modules simply clip on and are automatically recognised by the master unit, eliminating the possibility of programming errors.
The PNOZmulti is well supported in Australia, with local training and on-site support. Pilz Australia offers a complete service, from risk assessment and planning through to the final configuration of the PNOZmulti and detailed wiring support.
