Pilz is extending its web-based visualisation solution PASvisu: There is a new alarm management function, plus an OPC UA interface for connection to small controllers. For users of the configurable small controllers PNOZmulti, PASvisu now also allows a direct connection. As a result, the visualisation includes the full function range of the controller software, including the diagnostic option.

New version of the web-based visualisation solution PASvisu - Optimum combination of controller and visualisation
With its visualisation solution PASvisu, Pilz is committed to a particularly close relationship between control and visualisation system. The more the tool is rooted in the plant or machine, the more information the system can give and receive from the user. This provides benefits from engineering through to operation and maintenance: error sources and work time are reduced as a result.
Open for all systems – and for Pilz controllers
Thanks to the OPC UA interface, PASvisu can be connected to all common controllers on the market. This means that all the controllers' variables can be transferred automatically to PASvisu. There's an even simpler, higher-performance connection to Pilz controllers: following on from Pilz PLC controllers, PASvisu can now also be linked directly to the configurable small controllers PNOZmulti. More functions are available as a result: including the transfer of all inputs and outputs from the hardware components controlled via PNOZmulti. Thanks to the direct connection, the convenient diagnostic option of PASvisu is also available for safety functions. Downtimes are reduced thanks to faster diagnostics.
New alarm function
One of the additional new functions of PASvisu is alarm management. Alarms can be created and acknowledged; it is possible to create a list of active alarms and a log of cleared alarms and export these as a csv file. A tile for the active alarm status is available for visualisation, along with an alarm banner. A filter function in the PASvisu runtime and online language switching for all alarms complete the range of functions.
