Software tool PNOZmulti Configurator

The original safety circuit configuration tool for the small controllers PNOZmulti

Configure safety circuit for the small controllers PNOZmulti

Your safety circuit is easy to create on the PC using the PNOZmulti Configurator. The configuration tool provides support with the project design, configuration, documentation and commissioning of the small controllers from Pilz.

On the graphics-based, Windows®-compliant user interface, all elements for your safety circuit are available as icons or in selection menus. Online help with documentation is available during configuration of the safety circuit. Once this is complete, the tool checks the circuit for error sources.

From Software Version 10.9 of the PNOZmulti Configurator you can test your configured user program using the "Simulation" function, even before commissioning.

The fully configured safety circuit can be certified to protect it from unwanted changes. You can edit, amend or expand uncertified configurations of your safety circuit at any time. Simply call them up in the PNOZmulti Configurator! The configuration can be printed out and used as documentation.

Software PNOZmulti Configurator – What's new in Version 11.4

The software tool PNOZmulti Configurator is used to configure the hardware of the safe small controllers PNOZmulti 2 and to create the safety circuit. The original configurable safety program is proven to be easy to use.

Version 11.4 includes these new features:

  • Hardware:

Decentralised input and output modules of protection type IP67 with 8 safe inputs and 4 safe semiconductor outputs, which allow the direct connection of decentralised peripherals via four 5-pin M12 female connectors to PNOZmulti 2. In total up to 64 sensors or actuators can be flexibly monitored in the field. Less wiring saves costs during commissioning. A version with stainless steel screw connections is available, for use in the food industry for example.

  • A new ESI file:

Version 102, for the secure Safety over EtherCAT module PNOZ m EF EtherCAT FSoE has been integrated into the software tool. Using FSoE means you can implement safe plant structures with a “one-cable solution” at fieldbus level.

  • Motion monitoring modules:

Frequency filtering can be configured to suppress short-term implausible frequency signals or EMC interference.

  • Security functions:

The base unit PNOZ m B1 protects you against unauthorised access via user management. To access the device or perform certain tasks via PNOZmulti Configurator, a user must authenticate with their access data. Thus using PNOZmulti 2 is not only safe but also secure!

Software PNOZmulti Configurator – What’s new in Version 11.3

Laser scanner function blocks for PSENscan, motion monitoring for AGVS

From software version 11.3.0, new blocks provide for the most secure und flexible monitoring of the:

The zone selection function block enables productive solutions for stationary and mobile danger zone safeguarding in conjunction with the safety laser scanner PSENscan, used to monitor 2D zones. In this way, for example, it is possible to monitor open robot cells safely, or also guarantee efficient processes in a logistics or production environment.

Motion monitoring software blocks for safe synchronisation monitoring, for example, plus three others for safe position monitoring (Safe Position Comparison, Safe Position Range and Safe Position Monitoring), are available for monitoring automated guided vehicle systems (AGVS). They are used in conjunction with the safe motion monitoring modules PNOZmulti 2.

– With safe synchronisation monitoring, two axes are compared – a comparison is possible based on higher, lower or same speed. Tolerance windows can be defined in the software tool, enabling an even more flexible application. PNOZ m EF 2MM is the module of choice in this regard. Safe detection of anomalies in the synchronisation of two axes protects human and machine. Also, synchronous operation can be monitored on synchronous axes. Safe path detection is enabled by monitoring and comparing the two drive axes on an AGVS.

– When safe position monitoring is used, the position and position range of an axis can be monitored. The modules PNOZ m EF 1MM/2MM/1MM 2DO can be used for this purpose. The steering axis and current position of an axis can be monitored safely once a reference marker to detect the zero point has been set.

Hardware – Perfectly tailored to the application:

  • The input module PNOZ m ES 16DI has 16 digital inputs and monitors standard applications.
  • The communication module PNOZ m EF EtherCAT FSoE enables safe data transfer with Safety over EtherCAT in conjunction with the base unit PNOZ m B1. PNOZmulti 2 can be used as FSoE Master, FSoE Slave or EtherCAT Slave.
  • Decentralised input and output modules PDP67 F 10DI4DO (VA) forward signals from the connected sensors to the safe small controller PNOZmulti 2. New features are the four safe semiconductor outputs on the PDP67, which enable safe sensor technology such as the modular safety gate system PSENmlock to be connected directly to the PNOZmulti 2 via cable. Up to four of the modules with protection type IP67 can be connected to the PNOZmulti 2 via the link module PNOZ m EF PDP-Link. Up to four safe sensors per PDP67 module - a total of up to 64 sensors - can be monitored flexibly in the field in this way. A version with stainless steel screw connections is available, for use in the food industry for example. M12 plug-in connectors link sensors and actuators quickly and easily to the PDP67 module. Complicated wiring is avoided. That reduces costs when expanding and commissioning modular production plants.

Your application advantages:

  • Maximum flexibility due to the module program configuration
  • Safe solutions for stationary and mobile danger zone safeguarding with the laser scanner PSENscan
  • Parameters for motion monitoring safety functions are easily set via software, for the safe monitoring of automated guided vehicle systems (AGVS)
  • Software tool can be used free of licensing costs

Software tool PNOZmulti Configurator – Full Version 11 available free of licence costs!

From Version 11 there is a significant change in terms of licensing: you can now use the "basic" functionality of the software tool PNOZmulti Configurator without any licence costs. The software can be downloaded free of charge and used in automation projects. A licence fee is still payable for “Advanced” software elements.

Major innovation in Version 11

  • “Basic” version has no licence costs
  • New, higher performance software architecture
  • Supports Windows 64-bit system
