I/O systems PSSuniversal

Two solutions for automation and safety

I/O systems

Alongside proven I/O systems PSSuniversal the first generation with head modules and corresponding I/O modules, the remote I/O system PSSuniversal 2 is continuing the success story. Improvements to mechanics, handling and diagnostics show the way to the new universal generation.

The communication modules PSSuniversal and PSSuniversal 2 are used for decentralised networking plus the transfer of safety-related and non-safety-related signals at field level. Using PSSuniversal, a wide range of applications can be implemented by connecting up to 64 I/O modules. You can connect the communication modules to the PLC controllers PSSuniversal or other higher level controllers.

PSSuniversal – Proven technology used worldwide

Communication modules for PSSuniversal

The decentralised I/O system PSSuniversal is the solution for periphery expansion. It is connected to the higher level controller as remote I/O.

I/O modules PSSuniversal

Using our I/O modules, you can adapt your controllers and I/O systems individually to your requirements.

IP67 modules for solutions without control cabinet

With the modules PSS67 I/O and PDP67 With protection type IP67, Pilz offers decentralised solutions for applications directly in the field. You can install the modules directly on the machine. This optimises the work involved in programming and wiring. The module electronics are fully encapsulated. Therefore, it is dust-tight and protected against temporary immersion. They save time, money and space in the control cabinet.

New head module with EtherNet/IP interface for the remote I/O system PSSuniversal 2

Remote I/O system PSSuniversal 2

A head module with EtherNet/IP interface has been added to the remote I/O system PSSuniversal 2. So the open system adapts perfectly to the system environments that already exist. Exchanging the head module is quick and easy: To do this, save your configuration data locally on a microSD card. Then you can easily transfer the data to the new head module with EtherNet/IP interface. The I/O modules can be used universally in an identical manner for a wide variety of safety protocols.

In the remote I/O system PSSuniversal 2, various technical and mechanical improvements have been implemented to give the user specific time and cost savings. Safety is a basic function of the system, as is always the case with Pilz. In addition to the EtherNet/IP head module with CIP Safety, you have a further head module with PROFINET PROFIsafe interface.

PSSuniversal 2 – the next generation

PSSuniversal 2 communication modules

The remote I/O system PSSuniversal 2 is the open solution for your periphery expansion. It can be incorporated into your existing control architecture via standard industrial communication protocols.

PSSuniversal 2 I/O modules

Our electronic modules enable individual adaptation to your existing system – simple, flexible and granular.
