PES – Sensor boards

Training system for professional training support: The most important sensor functions

Sensor board

The PES – Sensor board are part of the comprehensive module range of Pilz Education Systems (PES). These modular training systems consist of modern, industrially implemented components for practical training.

PES modules simulate the functions of machines or systems and are used for training purposes. They consist of several safety and automation functions that are clearly arranged on a operator board.

Optimal tool for knowledge transfer in the field of safe automation

Here you can find all information regarding our training systems, their functions and the system versions available.

Modular training and learning systems

Use the sensor boards to learn how to safeguard a dangerous movement

Sensor board

The sensor board model a dangerous movement and show how three different safety functions with functional safety can be implemented.

All these functions are located on the operator boards: In accordance with the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, machines and systems must be fitted with an E-STOP device, so that hazards can be averted or reduced in the event of an emergency. This is illustrated by the PITestop emergency stop pushbutton. A two-hand or enabling switch is used to observe processes in the danger zone while the safety gate is open. The coded safety switch PSENcode takes over the function of the safety gate monitor. Illuminated pushbuttons can be used to switch the dangerous movement on or off.

Select from three options for sensor boards

Sensor board I: Training system module with emergency stop device, two-hand button (PITjog, to protect persons who observe processes in the danger zone while the safety gate is open) and a coded safety switch for monitoring the safety gate.

Sensor board II: Training system module with emergency stop device, three-stage enabling switch (PITenable, as a manual controller when working in the danger zone) and a coded safety switch for safety gate monitoring.

Sensor board III: Training system module with emergency stop device, three-step acknowledgement button (PITenable, as a manual controller when working in the danger zone) and a coded safety switch for safety gate monitoring. The process is simulated at a safe, reduced speed while “Set-up mode” is active. Two initiators monitor the rotary disk of a motor.

Learning objectives of the PES - Sensor boards
