Safe monitoring of the cardboard feed on packaging machines

With the modular safety relay myPNOZ

Packaging solutions must often accomplish one task above all: to safely protect operators. The same applies to monitoring the cardboard feed. In this case it is essential to avoid a scenario in which an operator can reach into the machine and get injured because the opening for the material feed is empty.

For this case Pilz offers a TÜV-certified solution up to PL d/Cat. 3 of EN ISO 13849- 1 or SIL CL 2 of EN IEC 62061, which can be assembled and adapted flexibly to safely monitor the feed of packaging material. Users can be confident that all the necessary safety precautions are met. Two optical sensors monitor the opening on the cardboard magazine. If there is insufficient cardboard in the magazine, the sensors will report this state to the modular safety relay myPNOZ. The machine is stopped until the cardboard is replenished and production can restart.
