Sales Engineer at Pilz
How did Pilz end up offering a TÜV Süd certified solution specifically for the cardboard feed?
There is a truly classic problem behind this, because cardboard can be used as safeguards in the packaging industry and our customers must ensure that the safety function protects the plant operator. For this reason, there was a high demand for a solution from Pilz that includes a TÜV Süd certification.
What does this package include?
Our customers receive a certified comprehensive carefree package from Pilz: it includes the appropriate sensors, the safety controller and comprehensive documentation that provides support during the commissioning and acceptance. If the customer is already using the configurable small controllers PNOZmulti 2, he does not need an additional analysis unit. In the PNOZmulti Configurator, the customer supplements its configuration to include the safety gate function block for monitoring the cardboard feed. If the solutions is implemented with a different controller and without software, the modular safety relay myPNOZ is used as an analysis unit.
And what are the benefits of this solution?
The certified overall package offers the customer flexibility: The sensors can be positioned not only laterally, but also above the application, for example. This is important if the process should be designed to be particularly ergonomic and productive. The documentation also includes connection examples, a safety description and assembly notes for simple installation. This is an important aid for our customers in order to integrate the safety functions into their plant and machinery.
