Mensch und Automation

Security affects us all! This is a firmly held conviction at Pilz. That's because, in an industrial environment, security not only includes the protection of data, but at the same time also guarantees the integrity of safety functions and safety measures. This makes it even more important to consider safety holistically. In the current of issue of “Mensch und Automation”, you can read about how we tackle the issue at Pilz and how we support our customers. 

An overview of the other topics:

  • “There is much uncertainty when dealing with security”: Thomas Pilz, Managing Partner at Pilz, regarding current developments and the changing perception of safety and industrial security
  • In step: Retrofit on the points – with the automation system PSS 4000, urban rail and tram systems in Poland are safer and more punctual
