Software tools for the small control systems PNOZmulti

PNOZmulti Configurator – The original tool for your safety circuit configuration

Software tools for the small control systems PNOZmulti

Your safety circuit is easy to create on the PC using the PNOZmulti Configurator. The configuration tool supports you with the project design, configuration, documentation and commissioning of Pilz control systems.

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

The fully configured safety circuit can be certified to protect it from unwanted changes. You can edit, alter or add to 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.

PNOZmulti Configurator Version 10.9 – now also for offline simulation

Ease of operation is a persuasive factor in PNOZmulti Configurator. You can use the software tool for planning, configuration, documentation, and commissioning. From version 10.9 you can test your configured user program with the function "Simulation" even before commissioning. In a first release you calculate the logic elements, in further releases you calculate all the elements with the simulation. Elements that are not simulated can be switched to the required state by forcing the outputs. This way, you can implement a simulation of the overall application. The targeted forcing of link elements enables you to simulate your application only in parts. This way you can save the effort of having to define all the inputs!

The state of the inputs and outputs of the configured elements and the connections between the elements are displayed. Active inputs, outputs and connections are highlighted in colour. Non-simulated elements can be found in the tool with the relevant mark.

Find out practically in the video how to use the "Simulation" function for your automation projects!

  • Display of inputs and outputs in variable list: The simulated input and output signals of the elements can be displayed in the variable list.
  • Forcing inputs and outputs: The state of a signal can be fixed – irrespective of the user program – (permanent "1" signal or permanent "0" signal). This so-called forcing can be activated or deactivated for all the outputs.
  • Simulation for logic element and two operating modes available: Inching and permanent cycle

Your operating advantages:

  • Simulation opens up significant potential for savings during project design
  • Verification of complex logic
  • user-friendly aid for detecting faults at an early stage, to analyse and to rectify them
  • Simulation helps to reduce risks for man and machine
  • Installation costs can be reduced

The benefits at a glance

  • Software with pre-assembled, certified blocks
  • Easy, retrospective modifications and adjustments to the configuration
  • Simple, comprehensive diagnostics mean short machine downtimes and high plant availability
  • Worldwide safety standard for various automation environments and different communication systems
  • Rapid commissioning and minimal amount of wiring work – See for yourself!

Benefits at a glance

Configure rather than wire the safety circuit

Configure rather than wire the safety circuit

  • Intuitive operation: Creating your safety circuit is refreshingly easy
  • Freely configurable: You can set the parameters for all inputs and outputs conveniently with a few clicks in the software tool
  • You link these by logical operators to form a safety circuit using drag-and-drop
  • You select all input, logic and output elements on the work space

Automatic error check, protection against changes

Automatic error check, protection against changes

  • Safe: The software tool checks the safety circuit created for errors
  • Protected: You can have the completed configuration certified, thereby protecting it from unwanted changes
  • Flexible: You can edit, alter or add to uncertified circuit diagrams at any time
  • Simple: For documentation just print out the circuit diagram configuration


PNOZmulti Configurator – Video-Tutorials

The configuration tool PNOZmulti Configurator supports you with the project design, configuration, documentation and commissioning of the configurable small control systems PNOZmulti. See for yourself! The video tutorials demonstrate the key functions of the PNOZmulti Configurator.

Configuration analogue input module PNOZ m EF 4AI – for safe process monitoring

From version 10.8 of PNOZmulti Configurators the safe analogue input module PNOZ m EF 4AI of the configurable small control systems PNOZmulti 2 is supported. The expansion module provides four independent safe analogue current inputs. The configuration is mode in the module program mIQ.

You can configure the following monitoring functions in the software tool:

  • Working area monitoring in accordance with the NAMUR NE43 recommendation or freely configurable
  • Scaling function
  • Plausibility check
  • Mathematical operations
  • Constant
  • Threshold value monitoring
  • Range monitoring

For diagnostic purposes, an exact analogue value can be forwarded to a fieldbus or an OPC server. The dynamic program display has been expanded for the analogue modules. The analogue values can also be displayed in a variable list. Find out more from the video about the various functions!

Configuration of the dual-pole semiconductor output module PNOZ m EF 8DI2DOT:

  • Expansion module provides 8 inputs and two 2-pole outputs
  • Configuration is performed in the module program
  • Configurable pulse suppression for the inputs of the module
  • Open circuit detection for the dual-pole outputs
  • Press elements are supported: Press elements operating modes, rotary cam arrangements, light curtain, pulse detection

In the adjacent video you can find out clearly how to configure PNOZ m EF 8DI2DOT!

Safe Ethernet connection

The PNOZmulti Configurator is the original tool for configuring safety circuits with the configurable control systems PNOZmulti. The block "Safe Ethernet Connection Status" (SEC) can be used for safe communication with the control systems in the automation system PSS 4000. In this video, you can find out how to apply the block quickly and simply.

Creating macros

Create safety circuits on your PC using the Configurator for the configurable control systems PNOZmulti. You can work even more efficiently by creating macros. Parts of the configuration can be combined into macro elements at the click of a mouse.

PNOZmulti Configurator from Version 8, including macros

  • Efficient: From Version 8, you can combine parts of a created configuration to form macro elements
  • Clear: Complex projects become clear, shortening the time taken up by diagnostics and fault rectification
  • Fast: Simple import and export function, plus the ability to edit macros within the editor, reduces your engineering time and saves costs
  • Re-usable: Macros that have previously been created are stored in the macro library so that they are available for all further safety circuits. You save time, while quality always stays the same
  • Protect your Expertise: Macros can be read and write protected
  • Faster support: You only send the macros – not the whole project configuration
  • Macro programming not currently possible with PNOZ m B1

Storing macros in the library

The configuration tool supports you with the project design, configuration, documentation and commissioning of Pilz control systems. Macros help you work even more efficiently. Once the macros have been created they are automatically stored in the Project Manager and can be reused at any time.

User interface texts translatable into every language

The user can translate all texts (project, diagnostics, GUI) in the PNOZmulti Configurator. This means that the Configurator can now be used in the local language in any country in the world. So you can generate your own tool languages for those languages not available from Pilz.

Creating a decentralised structure using link modules for PNOZmulti 2

The PNOZmulti Configurator supports the link modules for PNOZmulti 2 for decentralisation and safe communication between multiple base units. Find out how easy it is to create a decentralised structure!
