World firsts at SPS IPC Drives 2017

Under the motto "Safety in every dimension" at SPS IPC Drives Pilz will be presenting industry solutions, product innovations and services for your complete automation solution. The world firsts include the pressure-sensitive safety mat PSENmat with position detection plus the controller PSS67 PLC, the first safe PLC controller with IP67 protection.

Dynamic sensor technology for greater productivity and ergonomics

One of this year's highlights is the new pressure-sensitive safety mat PSENmatwhich enables new machine concepts through integrated position detection. Workers can have hands-free operation, for example, because the pressure-sensitive safety mat has integrated, virtual switches in the marked mat areas. As such, PSENmat combines safe area monitoring with plant and machine operation – in just one sensor!

The new safety laser scanner PSENscan is suitable for two-dimensional area monitoring. With PSENscan you not only secure access to the danger zone but also to the space behind it. While there is anyone within the danger zone, an unintended restart of the machine is prevented. You can provide all-round protection for automated guided vehicles (AGVs) with just two safety laser scanners! The 2D laser scanners detect objects in the vehicle's path and brake the AGV in good time.

PSS67 PLC: Automation outside the control cabinet

With the IP67 controller PSS67 PLC, Pilz is presenting the first safe PLC controller with IP67 protection. With its fully encapsulated module electronics it is mechanically very robust and can be installed directly on the machine. Not only does this reduce wiring work in comparison with control cabinet-based systems, but you can also be more flexible when implementing modular plant.

Visit Pilz at SPS 2017!

We will be presenting these and many other innovations from the fields of sensor, control and drive technology, as well as software and services, in Nuremberg from 28.-30.11.2017.
