PNOZ s30 – Making Safe Turns Simple
Pilz, an international leader in automation safety, recently announced the release of the Pilz brand speed monitor PNOZ s30 with a new analogue output feature. The PNOZ s 30 from Pilz safely monitors standstill, speed, speed range, direction of rotation and broken shear pin up to the highest category PL e/SIL CL 3. Pilz knows that the ability to work securely while the safety gate is open with reduced set-up times and faster access to the machine once standstill is initiated are of great benefit to you. And that is what you get with when the PNOZ s30 is employed. PNOZ s30 is suitable for all common drive/motor feedback systems and proximity switches on the market and the new configurable analogue output makes diagnostics much more user-friendly. How will this benefit you specifically, you ask?
· Safer Switching -- with safer switching, you can be more productive in the manufacture of your product. The new analogue output forwards the safely measured speed to the PLC controller as a proportional 0-20 or 4-20 mA signal. That speed can then be used directly for process monitoring and the safely monitored speed can be displayed and tracked directly on operating and monitoring devices such as the Pilz PMI operator terminals (Pilz Machine Interface). PNOZ s30 also utilizes a safe output signal to let you know when values fall below or exceed defined warning thresholds so that needless shutdown procedures can be avoided and productivity improved.
· Logically faster commissioning -- You can now logically link up to three safety functions (i.e. "Safe Operating Stop" or "Safe Speed Monitoring") through AND and OR connections. In addition, AND / OR can also be combined reducing potential wiring errors and enabling faster commissioning.
· “Slow turn" safety -- The speed monitor's broken shear pin monitoring now takes effect at a frequency of 10 mHz, instead of the previous 70 mHz enabling monitoring outside the normal speeds including extremely slow running speed applications.
· Better handling of configuration -- the PNOZ s30 is conveniently operated via a rotary knob ("push and turn"). When you combine that with an illuminated display it saves time during commissioning and when exchanging devices. The display shows the current speed as well as set limit values and parameters and the speed monitor provides advance warning when a defined warning threshold is reached.
With Pilz Automation Safety, L.P. you get all-encompassing motion monitoring and the Pilz brand offers an extensive selection in terms of speed monitoring such as the PNOZ s30, a stand-alone product for speed monitoring and the PNOZmulti when added safety functions in the application need to be monitored using the motion monitoring modules of its configurable small controllers. If limited reaction times and expanded safety functions Pilz offers the drive-integrated safety solution PMC and for safety and automation when speed monitoring on networked machines there is the PSS 4000 automation system.
