2nd generation PNOZmulti 2 - The success story continues!

Small controllers PNOZmulti 2

Used all over the world - you too can rely on the 2nd generation small controllers PNOZmulti for your automation. As a worldwide safety standard for numerous automation environments and communication systems, the small controller will fit into your system too. High productivity for your plant and machine, user-friendly diagnostics and simple visualisation - with the small controllers PNOZmulti 2 you are making the right decision - guaranteed!

The modular small controllers PNOZmulti 2 are flexible and can be adapted to your requirements, plus they also fit into the smallest control cabinet. At a minimal width of just 45 mm, you have maximum functionality for monitoring a wide range of safety functions up to PL e EN ISO 13849-1 or SIL CL 3 EN IEC 62061. User-friendly software helps you to configure the hardware and software. You need just one software application from planning to maintenance.

News: Safe monitoring of the cardboard feed on packaging machines

In your application, do you need to monitor whether a movable guard is in a pre-defined position: for example, the packaging material in a packaging machine's cardboard magazine? If there is sufficient packaging material in the cardboard feed magazine, then it is impossible for the operator to reach into the danger zone and injure themself while the machine is running. The material, such as cardboard for example, is used as a protective measure. Two optical sensors are used to detect whether there is sufficient material in the magazine. If the number of cardboard blanks falls below the permitted amount, the sensors signal this status to the small controller PNOZmulti 2. The outputs on the PNOZmulti 2 shut down the machine until sufficient cardboard is once again in place. If you are looking for a ready-to-use solution, you can use the modular safety relay myPNOZ as an alternative to the PNOZmulti 2.
