The aim is to make its own production processes permanently safer and more efficient. The plant in Ghent is used to refine steel coils (strip steel rolls) in accordance with customers’ requirements. However, to enable the steel strip to be cold-formed, it must first be heat treated. Significant downtimes and exhausting troubleshooting were the rule when the burners failed. After the retrofit, the automation system PSS 4000 now guarantees smooth and productive operation, due also to accelerated fault diagnostics, among other things.

Pilz hardware not affected by "Log4Shell" vulnerability in software library Log4j Vulnerability is highly unlikely to be exploited in Pilz Software products

On December 10th, 2021, the BSI (the German Federal Office for Information Security) published a cyber security alert on the so-called "Log4Shell" vulnerability in the software library Log4j. Log4j is used in many Java applications. Pilz hardware components do not use Java and thus no log4j. Therefore, these components are not affected.Pilz Software products partially use log4j versions 2.0 to 2.14.1 (current vulnerability CVE-2021-44228). Analyses to date have shown that it is highly unlikely that the vulnerability can be exploited. If, contrary to expectations, there is a risk, we will publish a security advisory.
