Pilz upgrades PSENmlock modular safety gate systemThe PSENmlock modular safety gate system from Pilz enables users to tailor each device to suit their exact requirements. Users benefit from an economical series connection, rapid diagnostics, additional control and pushbutton elements and an optional escape release. Different components can be combined to fit the application. The safety gate system is now being enhanced to include PSENmlock safety gate sensors with series connection and the PITgatebox pushbutton unit.

The core of the modular safety gate system comprises the PSENslock and PSENmlock safety gate sensors. The former offers safe position monitoring with process guard locking in one system, while the PSENmlock can be used up to the highest category thanks to the safe interlock and safe guard locking for the protection of personnel and processes.

Reduce downtime

The safety gate system now also includes the option of a PSENmlock with series connection for the safety gate sensor PSENmlock for safe interlocking and safe guard locking. Used in combination with the Pilz Safety Device Diagnostics (SDD), targeted control of individual switches or gates is now also possible – in the spirit of Industrie 4.0. Expensive individual wiring in the control cabinet is no longer necessary. This safety gate system not only offers an economical series connection, but also high availability thanks to the comprehensive diagnostics. As a result downtime can be reduced considerably.

Optional escape release

Two new versions of the escape release are now available as optional accessories for the PSENmlock safety gate sensors; these can be combined with all types of the safety gate sensor. A bar connects the PSENml escape release directly to the base unit, while the PSENml escape release cordset is mounted on the PSENmlock via a pull-push wire. The latter enables the installation of the safety gate system and escape release to be physically separate. It is said to be particularly easy to install and low-maintenance, as the pull-push wire does not have to be under tension. Both versions of the optional escape release therefore ensure high safety.

New pushbutton unit

A new PITgatebox pushbutton unit for simple operation and control of sensors is being offered as part of the safety gate system. The pushbutton unit enables the control of commands that activate, stop or reset a machine or system, for example. Thanks to the slimline design, the robust control unit can be installed quickly and easily on standard profile systems. The PITgatebox is available in a number of versions and, with its robust die-cast zinc housing, is resistant to shock, vibration and impacts. Its slimline housing enables space-saving installation. Each preconfigured version with various combinations of pushbuttons, key switches and emergency stop pushbuttons provides flexibility for individual applications.


The safety gate system contains not only both safety gate sensors, but also various accessories such as different escape releases and handle types for swing or sliding gates. A pushbutton unit that can be used with both safety gate sensors completes the system. Together with the Safety Device Diagnostics (SDD) and in combination with Pilz control technology, the result is an economical, complete system for safety gates.
