Software tools for the small controllers PNOZmulti

PNOZmulti Configurator – The original tool for your safety circuit configuration

Software tools for the small controllers PNOZmulti

Your safety circuit is easy to create on the PC using the PNOZmulti Configurator. The configuration tool supports you with the project design, configuration, documentation and commissioning of Pilz controllers.

On the graphics-based, Windows®-compliant user interface all elements are available for your safety circuit as icons or in selection menus. Online help with documentation is available during configuration of the safety circuit. Once it is complete, the tool checks the circuit for any errors.

The fully configured safety circuit can be certified to protect it from unwanted changes. You can edit, amend or expand uncertified configurations of your safety circuit at any time. Simply call them up in the PNOZmulti Configurator! The configuration can be printed out and used as documentation.

New: PNOZmulti Configurator Software Version 10.12

Two new operating mode selection elements (function blocks) are available for functionally safe operating mode selection up to PL d / SIL CL 2. In conjunction with the operating mode selection and access permission system PITmode, specifically the PITreader, you have two user-friendly, safe solutions for selecting operating modes on plant and machinery.

  • Operating mode selected via pushbutton: The operating mode can be selected via the Pilz PIT oe4S Buttonbox or also by using standard commercial pushbuttons. Permission to make the selection is configured in conjunction with PITreader and the corresponding RFIDKeys. The selected operating mode can be read in the PNOZmulti 2.

  • Operating mode selected via touchscreen panel: Alternatively, the operating mode can be selected safely via a keypad on an HMI. That way the operating mode can be selected safely using the operator and visualisation terminals PMIvisu. Here too, permission to make the selection is granted via PITreader and RFIDKeys with the relevant configuration.

To control access permissions, the new Software Version 10.12 enables up to 4 PITreader devices to be connected to the base unit PNOZ m B1.

From Version 10.12 there is also support for the PNOZ m B1 Burner, a new base unit for the small controllers PNOZmulti 2, which is specifically for applications in industrial burner management. Safe control and monitoring of furnaces in accordance with EN 50156 and EN 298 are implemented using the integrated burner function block. PNOZmulti 2 takes care of all the other plant-related safety functions at the same time.

That's one-stop safety!

The video shows you how to set up the configuration in the software tool!

PNOZmulti Configurator Software Version 10.11

Software Version 10.11 enables you to use the real-time Ethernet SafetyNET p RTFL to configure safe data exchange between PNOZmulti 2 base units (PNOZ m B0 / B1) and the safe motion solution PMCprotego DS.

PMCprotego DS is composed of the servo amplifier PMCprotego D and the safety card PMCprotego S3. 32-bit data is exchanged via RTFL, enabling short reaction times for your application. Previously you could connect up to 16 PNOZmulti 2 base units in a linear topology via the expansion module PNOZ m EF SafetyNET. Now it is also possible to incorporate the safe motion solution PMCprotego DS into the SafetyNET p network, creating a safe drive solution in conjunction with PNOZmulti 2. PNOZmulti 2 monitors the drive solution and ensures the movement is stopped in a controlled and therefore safe manner.

Another new feature from Version 10.11 are selectable tolerance times for track signals from the PNOZmulti 2 motion monitoring modules PNOZ m EF 1MM/2MM. A new encoder type for proximity switches with reduced diagnostics is also available, for use in wind turbines.

PNOZmulti Configurator – Video-Tutorials

The configuration tool PNOZmulti Configurator supports you with the project design, configuration, documentation and commissioning of the configurable small controllers PNOZmulti. See for yourself! The video tutorials demonstrate the key functions of the PNOZmulti Configurator.

PNOZmulti Configurator Version 10.9 – now also with offline simulation

From Version 10.9 you have the option to test your configured user program prior to commissioning using the "Simulation" function. In an initial release you can calculate the logic elements; in further releases you can calculate all the elements with the simulation. Elements that are not simulated can be switched to the required state by forcing the outputs. This way you can simulate the whole application. The targeted forcing of link elements enables you to simulate your application only in parts. This saves you from having to define all the inputs!

The video shows you quite specifically how to use the "Simulation" function for your automation projects!

Configuration of the analogue input module PNOZ m EF 4AI – for safe process monitoring

The safe analogue input module PNOZ m EF 4AI from the configurable safe small controllers PNOZmulti 2 is supported from Version 10.8 of the PNOZmulti Configurator. The expansion module provides four independent safe analogue current inputs. The configuration is mode in the module program mIQ.

You can configure the following monitoring functions in the software tool:

  • Work area monitoring in accordance with the NAMUR NE43 recommendation or freely configurable
  • Scaling function
  • Plausibility check
  • Mathematical operations
  • Constant
  • Threshold value monitoring
  • Range monitoring

For diagnostic purposes, an exact analogue value can be forwarded to a fieldbus or an OPC server. The dynamic program display has been expanded for the analogue modules. The analogue values can also be displayed in a variable list. Find out more about the various functions in the video!

Configuration of the dual-pole semiconductor output module PNOZ m EF 8DI2DOT:

  • Expansion module provides 8 inputs and two 2-pole outputs
  • Configuration is performed in the module program
  • Configurable pulse suppression for the module's inputs
  • Open circuit detection for the dual-pole outputs
  • Press elements are supported: press elements operating modes, rotary cam arrangements, light curtain, pulse detection

The adjacent video clearly shows how to configure PNOZ m EF 8DI2DOT!

PNOZmulti 2 project Migration Assistant

If you are converting your hardware from PNOZmulti / PNOZmulti Mini to the configurable safe small controllers PNOZmulti 2, there is a convenient migration tool available from Version 10.2, which you can use to migrate the data from the original project. The Assistant takes care of the hardware configuration, project logic, test pulse configuration, equipment identifier, link modules, PDP67 modules, fieldbus modules and virtual I/Os and then generates a migration report. The result is stored in a new project file. The source file is untouched.

Even within the PNOZmulti it is possible to migrate from the base unit PNOZ m B0 to B1. There are certain restrictions for migration; details can be found in the documentation.

Further information about the Migration Assistant is available in the video!

Safe Ethernet connection

The PNOZmulti Configurator is the original tool for configuring a safety circuit with the configurable control systems PNOZmulti. The block "Safe Ethernet Connection Status" (SEC) can be used for safe communication with the controllers in the automation system PSS 4000. In this video you can find out how to apply the block quickly and simply.

Creating macros

Create safety circuits on your PC using the Configurator for the configurable control systems PNOZmulti. You can work even more efficiently by creating macros. Parts of the configuration can be combined into macro elements at the click of a mouse.

PNOZmulti Configurator from Version 8, including macros

  • Efficient: from Version 8 you can combine parts of a created configuration to form macro elements
  • Clear: complex projects become clear, reducing the time taken by diagnostics and troubleshooting
  • Fast: simple import and export function, plus the ability to edit macros within the editor, reduces your engineering time and saves costs
  • Re-usable: existing macros are stored in the macro library so that they are available for all further safety circuits. You save time, while quality always stays the same
  • Protect your expertise: macros can be read and write protected
  • Faster support: you only send the macros – not the whole project configuration
  • Macro programming not currently possible with PNOZ m B1

Storing macros in the library

The configuration tool supports you with the project design, configuration, documentation and commissioning of Pilz controllers. Macros help you work even more efficiently. Once the macros have been created they are automatically stored in the Project Manager and can be reused at any time.

User interface texts translatable into every language

The user can translate all texts (project, diagnostics, GUI) in the PNOZmulti Configurator. This means that the Configurator can now be used in the local language in any country in the world. So you can generate your own tool languages for those languages not available from Pilz.

Creating a decentralised structure using link modules for PNOZmulti 2

The PNOZmulti Configurator supports the link modules for PNOZmulti 2 for decentralisation and safe communication between multiple base units. Find out how easy it is to create a decentralised structure!
