New Pilz PSENslock 2 safety locking devices

Pilz, a provider of machine safe automation technology, is adding a new sensor to its portfolio of safety locking devices with the addition of PSENslock 2.

Pilz PSENslock 2 safety locking devicesBuilt on the tried and tested product PSENslock, slock 2 offers increased robustness and an optimized hygienic design, as well as new versions with stainless steel components. The updated sensor offers particular benefits for the packaging and pharmaceutical industry, as well as the food and beverage sector. A high level of manipulation protection and added flexibility for the user are characteristics of the safety locking device. This has a positive impact on productivity.

The new PSENslock 2, for process protection on plants and machinery, is characterized by efficient process guard locking, even where there are robust requirements: with protection type IP67 and IP6K9K, it is insensitive to dust and water. Thanks to the flexibly mounted actuator with large contact surfaces, any safety gate misalignments or vibrations are offset by PSENslock 2, thus guaranteeing high productivity. Special versions with stainless steel components are available for more hygiene-critical applications.

The PSENslock 2 can be used universally to safeguard safety gates and is designed for use up to the highest category PL e, Cat. 4 of EN ISO 13849. The high holding force of either 1,000 or 2,000 N and manipulation protection for the RFID safety switch via freely selectable coding (coded, fully coded, uniquely coded) offer reliable process protection, because unwanted interruptions to production are prevented. The unlocked holding force can also be set quickly and in stages, adjusted to the respective plant and the size of the safety gate.

This intelligent safety locking device increases flexibility in the design and installation phase.
The clear display via four LEDs on both sides makes it easy for the operator to recognize the respective status during both start up and operation. Extended diagnostic options are available in combination with the intelligent diagnostic system SDD (Safety Device Diagnostics) from Pilz, allowing availability to be increased even further. For applications that require safeguard locking for personnel protection, there is also a version available that safely monitors the holding force.

The PSENslock 2 also offers particular benefits for the food and beverage industry thanks to its IP67 (IP6K9K) protection type and special stainless-steel versions. PSENslock 2 offers the right product features for increased hygiene requirements. Also, the robustness and flexibility of the safety locking devices in the machine tool or paper processing industry, for example, guarantee reliable safety gate management.

In combination with the control unit PITgatebox with integrated access permission system PITreader, the intelligent diagnostic system SDD and the safe small controller PNOZmulti 2 from Pilz, the result is a complete, economical and reliable solution for safeguarding safety gates.
