Access for authorised persons only!

The best gate safeguard or access control is worthless if unauthorised access to your machine is possible via the network. A holistic safety concept is required, which considers both machinery safety and industrial security. If security gaps should arise, then loss of quality and unplanned machine downtimes are two of the potential scenarios. So it's all the more important to protect plant and machinery in such a way that only authorised personnel have access and tampering with the control systems via attacks from outside is prevented.

We offer you a coherent machine access concept, which takes into account not only the safety of your machine, but also its industrial security. Here we've compiled a potential solution for secure access control!

Our solutions for secured access and secure data

In every company there are areas that need protection from unwanted access. However, protecting the human from the machine is not enough; we should also protect the machine from the human. Consequently, machinery safety and industrial security must be considered in equal measure.
With the operating mode selection and access permission system PITmode fusion, the modular safety gate system, the small controllers PNOZmulti 2 and the SecurityBridge firewall, we offer a solution that not only takes the machinery safety requirements into account, but also defines permissions for service engineers as well as other persons and roles. That way, your staff are protected from any hazards the machine may present, and your machine is protected from operator errors and tampering.

The operating mode selection and access permission system PITmode fusion authenticates people based on the data on a cryptographically protected RFID key and authorises these people to perform certain actions based on the stored permissions. Nobody can open the safety gate, which is protected via a gate lock, until the reader unit registers the correct permission. The SecurityBridge firewall protects access via the network. It monitors communication with the controller, in this case the small controllers PNOZmulti 2, and guarantees that on-site operation cannot be influenced by unauthorised access via the network.
That way we offer you a coherent machine access concept, which not only takes machinery safety into account, but also industrial security.

Machinery safety and industrial security

Operating mode selection and access permission system PITmode fusion

PITmode fusion

With PITmode fusion, you protect your plant and machinery from unauthorised access and prevent damage due to improper use. As well as controlling access permission with PITreader, you can also use PITmode fusion for functionally safe operating mode selection. Implement safety and security functions in one system.

Safe access control

Configurable safe small controllers PNOZmulti 2

Rely on a bestseller and the worldwide safety standard for all machine types to monitor emergency stop, safety gates, light curtains, two-hand controls and lots more. In the graphics configuration tool you can use certified function blocks to simply create access permissions with PITreader and safe operating mode selection with PITmode fusion.

Modular safety gate system

Modular safety gate system

By safeguarding access to machinery, you protect your staff from hazardous machine movements. This is where the modular safety gate system is put to use. As well as providing reliable protection for safety gates, thanks to the building block principle you can also create a customised safety gate solution to suit your application. You also benefit from an economical series connection, rapid diagnostics, additional control and pushbutton elements and an optional escape release.

Application Firewall SecurityBridge

The most secure access to your plant and machinery is worthless if an attacker from outside can penetrate your control network and manipulate the control system. The SecurityBridge firewall protects Pilz controllers from tampering. It monitors the data traffic between the PC and controller and reports any unauthorised changes to the control project. That way it protects downstream controllers from network-based attacks and unauthorised access.
