SAFE automation control specialist, Pilz (Stand 2003) will demonstrate live, at QMAN, the resources needed to achieve safe machines.
The demonstration will highlight several Pilz products; the PNOZ safety relays; the Programmable Safety System (PSS); and the SafetyBUS p system.
PNOZ safety relays are widely used to monitor and control emergency stops, light curtains, safety gates, safety mats and two-handed controls.
The PSS is a logic driven triply redundant safety controller. It offers optimum safety levels allowing new functions to be programmed simply as the plant develops and changes, controlling up to 288 circuits.
The company's safe bus systems offer the benefits of conventional fieldbus systems while meeting AS4024.1 category 4 requirements.
The open protocol of the new SafetyBUS p system enables users to incorporate field modules from other manufacturers and network programmable safety systems for more than 1000 I/O over 3.5km, which can then be bridged to multiply the I/O and bus length.
The demonstration will check and control simulated faults, enabling visitors to see how they are diagnosed and controlled for minimal downtime while achieving safety levels certified to AS4024.
