Jun. 28, 2018 – With PSS67 PLC, automation company Pilz say it is launching the first safe PLC controller with protection type IP67. PSS67 PLC can be installed outside the control cabinet, directly on the machine, described as helping users save space, reduce their wiring work and enjoy greater flexibility when implementing decentralized control architectures.
Due to its fully encapsulated module electronics, this controller is described as being particularly robust mechanically. It is protected against dust and temporary submersion and can be used for temperatures from -30 to 60 degrees C. The PSS67 PLC is suitable for applications up to the highest category PL e, and is part of the automation system PSS 4000. It is compatible with other controllers in the system and can integrate into existing architectures. PSS67 PLC has 16 safe digital inputs for the direct connection of sensors and can be combined with the compact module PSS67 I/O from Pilz, which forwards signals from the field.
