Custom-fit safety for prototypes!

Micado is a supplier of automated solutions focusing on tailor-made, innovative customer applications. That’s why Macado used the new type of modular safety relay myPNOZ for the safety technology on a prototype inline measurement system – even before it was officially launched. It offered the right functionality for the safety concept on the inline measurement station, but also had another convincing feature: myPNOZ was delivered pre-configured and ready to install, so no programming work was needed for commissioning.

Cost-effective, tailor-made solution

Batch size 1 for safety relays: Micado was able to build “its own” individualised myPNOZ system. Delivered pre-assembled and ready to install.

Three safety functions were to be reproduced on the inline measurement system– emergency stop, a safety gate required for setup and maintenance work, and a safety flap to prevent intervention in the upstream machine. In safety technology terms the safety solution also had to harmonise with the upstream and downstream production process. The safety solution was configured completely via the intuitive online tool myPNOZ Creator, which makes the configuration simple to create. The Pilz solution meets all the requirements. And also saves time: up to one hour per machine for each commissioning task, which otherwise would have to have been implemented on site, involving a great deal of programming and wiring, plus a subsequent I/O check to validate the entire system. 

Benefits at a glance

  • “Ready-to-install” saves time: up to one hour per machine for commissioning thanks to the ready-to-install system
  • No programming work: the online tool myPNOZ Creater means there’s no need for a programmer on-site
  • Fast commissioning as there’s less work thanks to an individual connection diagram and documentation, including shutdown matrix

Quotation

“We are thinking about configuring a myPNOZ unit that will be suitable for 80 per cent of our applications. If we can create such a standard, which will cover a wide range of projects, then we can reuse it again and again, without any engineering or programming work: That’s an attractive proposition.”
