Webinar: Surviving a cyberattack

Pilz was hit with a ransomware cyberattack on October 13, 2019. Pilz chose not to comply with the attacker’s demands because doing so would have rewarded their efforts and financed additional attacks on others. More importantly, Pilz chose to stand strong to guarantee their data and the data of their customers wasn’t further compromised, potentially leaving them vulnerable to future attacks. Learn how Pilz not only survived the attack, but is coming back stronger than ever. Join us for this free webinar.

Safeguarding areas with 2D sensors

Nov 6, 2017

Use sensors for area and zone monitoring!

How can you effectively protect areas in front of plant and machinery? Use optical protective devices to safeguard areas if people have to frequently enter danger areas or material feed-in or discharge is required. Light grids, laser scanners, camera systems and pressure-sensitive safety mats are the optimum devices for area guarding.
