First UKCA Certificate for myPNOZ Safety Relay from PILZ

DCS First UKCA Certificate for myPNOZ Safety Realy 1 400

July 27, 2022

 

Safety relay myPNOZ ready to use in Great Britain even after 2022

Pilz is the first company in Germany to receive from TÜV Süd the UKCA certificate for the modular safety relay myPNOZ. As such, myPNOZ will be accepted on the British market even after January 2023.

In the wake of Brexit, the existing CE mark used in the European Union will be replaced in England, Wales and Scotland by the UKCA certificate. UKCA stands for United Kingdom Conformity Assessment and will be mandatory once the transition period expires at the end of 2022. From this point onwards, all products sold on the British market must have UKCA certification.

In collaboration with TÜV Süd, Pilz has already secured certification for the modular safety relay myPNOZ. As a result, Pilz can continue to supply its customers seamlessly in the UK. It also guarantees that customers who use Pilz products in their plant and machinery can also continue to export to Great Britain in compliance with directives.

 

In the coming months, many other Pilz products will be certified to UKCA. So even once the transition period ends on 1 January 2023, there will be a comprehensive portfolio available to import into Great Britain.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
