The programmable control system PSS 3000 has been on the market since 1994. During this time Pilz has managed to maintain an upward compatible system with a consistently high level of quality, and satisfied customers. However, in early 2016, with a vast number of components being discontinued by suppliers, we could no longer maintain our high standards and announced the PSS 3000 would be discontinued in January, 2017. Since then, we have embarked on a plan to introduce customers to Pilz’s next generation of decentralized systems, the PSS 4000, as a flexible and efficient alternative.
During the past year, Pilz noticed that, while each customers system is unique to their plant and needs, there are some common core issues. With this in mind, Pilz has created tools to assist you to ensure a smooth transition from the PSS 3000 to the PSS 4000.
To guarantee a smooth migration from PSS 3000 to a new, state-of-the-art PSS 4000 system, Pilz uses a three-phase model:
- Phase 1: Analysis—Determining the current state of the application (documentation, program, hardware)
- Phase 2: Preparation of migration—Specification and validation of the current state of the machine/plant
- Phase 3: Creating PSS 4000 application, taking into account the safety-relevant requirements in accordance with EN13849-1
To assist in learning more about the migration in general, Pilz is presenting a webinar. This webinar will review each phase in more detail and explain how Pilz is your partner in the process. You will have the ability to ask questions and receive an immediate response.
