The latest version of the Configurator software for the Pilz PNOZmulti modular safety controller benefits from several major enhancements. Version 5 gains a number of extra safety functions, new standard automation control functions and improved diagnostics to help minimise plant downtime in the event of a safety-related stoppage.
Additional safety functions in the drag-and-drop Configurator enable users to create safety-related control systems that utilise safety mats, safety gates with interlocks, pushbuttons, limit switches, key switches, foot switches and light curtains with muting functions.
For those who use the PNOZmulti to perform standard automation control functions, version 5 of the Configurator enables the cascading output from the PNOZmulti to be used as an output for standard control functions.
Pilz has recently announced the PVIS expanded diagnostic concept and version 5 of the Configurator can be used to create the error messages and set up the PVIS diagnostics when a compact PMImicro diag diagnostic display is connected to the PNOZmulti controller.
Any customers who have bought a licence for the PNOZmulti Configurator software since 1 January 2006 are entitled to a free upgrade.
