At sps ipc drives, Pilz will be presenting innovations in the field of control technology. These include the configurable control systems PNOZmulti 2 and the Fast Control Unit in the automation system PSS 4000.
Pilz is expanding the device category "configurable control systems" with the new product range PNOZmulti 2. In Nuremberg the company will be presenting the compact base unit PNOZ m B0 plus the expansion module PNOZ m EF 8DI4DO. For the first time it will provide 8 safe inputs as well as 4 safe semiconductor outputs (PL e; SIL CL 3) in one module. Users benefit from increased flexibility in engineering.
Pilz now provides a module for fast signal shutdown with the Fast Control Unit in the automation system PSS 4000. The module can access I/O signals in the control program and is therefore as flexible as a freely programmable module. Thanks to the local logic function, the Fast Control Unit reacts as quickly as a hard-wired module. It is used wherever you need a particularly rapid reaction to fault states, such as on presses or in cable cars.
