The new automation system PSS4000 has passed inspection: The system hardware and corresponding software platform PAS4000 have been granted safety approval by TÜV SÜD. This confirms that the safety mechanisms defined in the concept approval are reliable.
To achieve this goal, the function and interaction of all system components, from I/O module to programming and configuration software, were thoroughly examined in regular audits, not just by Pilz during ongoing development but also by independent inspectors.
The hardware and software platform of the new automation system are closely co-ordinated. Both have been fully developed by Pilz in-house in order to implement the high requirements for universality, plus dovetailing of standard and safety functions in an easily manageable format.
The PSSuniversal PLC control systems now available for standard control and safety functions can be combined with networking via the powerful Ethernet system SafetyNET p, making it easier to decentralise control functions and produce modular machinery. All sensors and actuators are connected via the decentralised I/O platform PSSuniversal.
Now that the system has passed inspection by TÜV SÜD, there is nothing to stop the automation system PSS4000 and SafetyNET p being applied freely within industry.
The automation system PSS4000 is designed for all automation tasks: from machine control to safety technology and beyond to motion control, including diagnostics and visualisation. The corresponding software platform PAS4000 makes a significant contribution to reducing the costs and labour of engineering.

The innovative software platform PAS4000 helps to reduce the costs and labour of engineering. It also enables users to retain a centralised perspective, even of decentralised, distributed control structures.
