The automation of the future demands solutions that guarantee high availability on flexible plant concepts and are easy to manage. These properties are all combined in the automation system PSS 4000. Conventional automation uses a single, central controller to monitor the plant or machine and to process all the signals. With the automation system PSS 4000 you can network multiple controllers in accordance with the Multi-Master principle and yet each one runs autonomously. Your programming is independent from the hardware and you can decide later whether a function is to run in various controllers or just in one controller. This saves you time when programming and avoids errors. The optimum solution for modular and flexible plants in accordance with the Industrie 4.0 benchmark.
Smart Products enable intelligent production processes and they promote the automation of the future. This is characterised by autonomous systems and networked plants and machinery. New challenges for machinery and IT safety are the result. It is a matter of course for us to face these challenges. Driven by the "Spirit of Safety", we already offer safe automation solutions of tomorrow - our Smart Products.
Automation system PSS 4000 for Industrie 4.0
Customised E-STOP for the smart factory
With PITestop active, Pilz has a new range of E-STOP pushbuttons that can be activated electrically. These E-STOP pushbuttons use illumination to signal whether or not they are active. This makes PITestop active the right solution for mobile panels or for plant and machinery in which plant sections are moved. It means that machinery can be designed with greater flexibility.
PITestop active makes it easier to handle and identify inactive machine parts and control units. This is particularly important when machines are close together, as their effective range can now be defined more narrowly. Inactive machine parts, on an interlinked machine for example, can simply be switched off completely, so reducing your plant's energy consumption.
Modular diagnostics on safety devices provide independence
The new diagnostic solution Safety Device Diagnostics enables comprehensive diagnostic data to be retrieved simply and over distance, for use in remote maintenance for example. In this way service calls can be considerably reduced, increasing productivity significantly. The Safety Device Diagnostics package is easy to expand, thus supporting a modular machine design.
When used in conjunction with Pilz control systems, which already support a modular plant design, flexible safety concepts can be implemented with all solutions, completely in the spirit of the smart factory in accordance with Industrie 4.0.
New: Don't even give manipulation a chance
When men, machines and industrial processes are intelligently networked, they are also more vulnerable. But how do you protect your safety controllers from manipulation?
With SecurityBridge we can offer the optimum solution!
The SecurityBridge protects the safe, configurable small controllers PNOZmulti 2 and the automation system PSS 4000 from manipulation due to unauthorised access. That way you don't even give espionage and manipulation a chance, but guarantee the safety of your staff and the availability of your machines!
