Solution for Protection Zone Monitoring
Published by : Industrial Automation
New to the Pilz portfolio is the world's first safe complete Solution for Protection Zone Monitoring, based on radar technology. It comprises the safe radar system "LBK System" from Inxpect S.p.A. and the configurable small controller PNOZmulti 2. This complete solution provides safe, economical monitoring even in the must rugged environments – in extreme production environments such as dust in woodworking for example – or with complex plant structures. Benefits of the safe radar system solution include high plant or machine productivity, despite the most rugged environment. The safe radar system solution expands the Pilz portfolio in the safe sensor technology range PSEN. It comprises up to six radar sensors and one control unit, depending on the application. Add to that the configurable safe small controller PNOZmulti 2, which is responsible for safety in the solution. In the event of a fault and when the protection zone is violated, PNOZmulti ensures that the reaction that is triggered is safe and reliable. The safe radar system solution can be used up to SIL 2, PL d, Category 2.
The safety-related functions covered by the system solution include the "detection function", i.e., when a machine is switched to a safe state as soon as a danger zone is violated, plus the restart interlock, which prevents the machine starting automatically if there is anyone in the danger zone. The layout for a protection zone is maximum 15 m x 4 m with an opening angle of 110° horizontal and 30° vertical.
