For over 70 years Pilz has been inspiring its customers with innovative products and solutions: initially with glass laboratory equipment, then electronic timers and later relays and programmable control systems. At each point in time Pilz has adapted to the current needs of the market and changed significantly with its technological milestones.
Pilz became technology leader with the world’s first and most widely used emergency stop relay “PNOZ”. It is the epitome of a safety relay and has shaped the history of automation technology. A vast range of experiences from the most varied safety-related applications and the development of one of the first programmable logic controllers (PLC) were the basis for developing the first programmable safety controller.
