Benefit from safe automation

There are many benefits to automation, which today is used in many industries across the world. When you automate machines, or even entire manufacturing and production facilities, you not only simplify processes but also increase quality and productivity.

However, the safety aspect is very often neglected with industrial automation, and not just to the detriment of staff. Damage to materials and tools and the consequent downtimes are just some of the negative consequences. It’s worse still when people are injured. Also, if sate inspections establish that simple safety standards are not being met, then closure of the whole plant in inevitable. Quick and costly investments in safety measures will be needed to allow the plant to be put back into service.

With Pilz at your side as a partner, such cases can be avoided. We know which requirements are important for safe automation and are happy to support you with the implementation and solution. Because when it comes to complying with machinery safety requirements, many countries have regulations ranging from non-binding recommendations to mandatory laws.

The smallest safety controller PNOZmulti 2 – PNOZ m C0

With the ever-evolving complexity of automation machinery the need for expanded flexibility in the control of the machine while keeping cost low is an industry need. Pilz Automation has been serving this need with its well established PNOZ Multi line of small safety controllers.

The latest addition to this product family is the smallest of these controllers the PNOZ m C0. Using the same free and easy to use configuration software PNOZ multi configurator the PNOZ m C0 saves cost while remaining highly flexible.

The 22.5mm wide housing will allow the controller to fit into the smallest control cabinet.  The PNOZ m C0 has 8 safe inputs and 4 safe outputs allowing up to four safety functions in a wide range of safety applications up to PL e EN ISO 13849-1 or SIL CL 3 EN IEC 62061. This PNOZ m C0 can do the job of 4 safety relays in the space of one at a similar cost to 2 traditional relays.

This small relay could for example monitor an e-stop, a light curtain, safety scanner and a safety door on its own.
