German Innovation Award

The German Innovation Award honours products and solutions that distinguish themselves primarily by their user centricity and added value compared to earlier solutions, across all industrial sectors. After all: innovations that shape the future and improve life can be found in all sectors. Sometimes you see it at first glance – but quite often you don’t. That’s what the German Innovation Award wants to change. It makes magnificent achievements visible to a wide audience.

The jury is composed of independent, interdisciplinary experts from industry, science, institutions and finance.

The new modular safety relay myPNOZ convinced the jury with its special level of innovation and was declared the 2021 winner in the "Electronic Technologies" category!

Red Dot Award

With around 20,000 submissions, the Red Dot Design Award is one of the world's largest design competitions. An independent panel of experts, the Red Dot Jury, decides on the awards. This year it is composed of 48 people from 23 nations.

The international jury only awards this quality mark to products that exhibit outstanding design. Above all the jury was convinced by the practical flexibility of the myPNOZ, the first modular safety relay to offer the market tailor-made safety in batch size 1.

“The winning products display profound creativity. It's both remarkable and commendable that there are still designs that surprise you in terms of form and functionality", says Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of Red Dot.

Three steps to your modular safety relay

myPNOZ ‘You create’ icon

You create

With the user-friendly myPNOZ Creator, you simply create your individual myPNOZ. You choose the required safety functions, and myPNOZ Creator puts the ideal hardware together. You can check your configuration with the simulation function. If everything fits, your myPNOZ is ordered with just a few quick clicks.

  • Individual
myPNOZ ‘We build’ icon

We build

Each myPNOZ is tailor-made and pre-assembled by us in batch size 1 according to your individual configuration. We also set the parameters to suit your specifications, e.g. regarding the start type or time delay. Your modular relay will be sent to you following a system test.

  • Tailor-made
myPNOZ ‘You install’ icon

You install

myPNOZ is quick and easy to install. You’ll receive your ready-to-use myPNOZ ready to plug and play’. No software is required for commissioning. And the time and effort required for wiring has also been significantly reduced.

  • Easy

The product features

Tailor-made safety and clever product features are convincing features of the modular safety relay. It consists of a head module and a maximum of eight expansion modules and ensures safe monitoring of 2 to 16 input functions such as emergency stop, safety gates, safety light curtains, two-hand IIIA/C controls and enabling switches.

  • Higher-level safety function and power supply via head module
  • Four input modules, four output modules and four input / output modules available
  • Monitoring of machine parts in independent safety zones
  • Modules connected via BUS connector
  • Two safety inputs per input module, AND-/OR-linked as an option
  • Output modules with relay or semiconductor outputs with / without time delay
  • Module expansion and replacement when installed
  • Diagnostics via LED display

Five reasons for using myPNOZ

‘Cut costs’ icon

You cut costs
 – pay for what you need

From the multitude of available modules, you choose - or myPNOZ Creator selects - only those modules with the functions you actually need. If your requirements change, myPNOZ can be modified and expanded at any time – giving you maximum flexibility.

‘Save time’ icon

You save time
 – quick and easy commissioning

You will receive your myPNOZ from us pre-assembled, set-up and tested. Ready for ‘plug and play’ commissioning; no additional software and no complicated wiring.

‘Increase availability’ icon

You increase your plant’s availability
 – switch off where it matters

myPNOZ allows you to monitor plant sections independently of one another in separate safety zones. OR-links between input functions can also be implemented as an option.

‘Fault prevention’ icon

You prevent faults
 – zero programming knowledge required

You define the required safety functions in myPNOZ Creator. myPNOZ Creator automatically selects the ideal hardware and the corresponding sequence of the modules.

‘Space-saving’ icon

You save space
 – fewer modules and a narrow design width

Each input module monitors two safe input functions, which means you need fewer modules. What’s more, the narrow widths of 12.5 mm or 17.5 mm on myPNOZ are a convincing feature.
