New: Safe Protection Zone Monitoring of Robotics Applications from PILZ

DCS PILZ New Safe Protection Zone Monitoring 1 400

January 31, 2022

 

For safe protection zone monitoring of robotics applications, particularly in rugged environments, another sensor is now available for the safe radar system PSENradar: PSEN rd1.2 with the equally new analyzing unit PSEN rd1.0 I/O PS ETH, which covers Category 3 / PL d.

So, in conjunction with the modular safety relay myPNOZ, you have a safe, complete solution for safeguarding robotics applications. Example applications include rear access protection in metalworking, safe woodworking thanks to protection zone monitoring, using radar sensors to safeguard outdoor applications, and more.

 

Example applications

 

Rear access protection in metalworking

DCS PILZ New Safe Protection Zone Monitoring 3 400

The safe radar sensor is typically used in heavy industry, where, for example, welding sparks, swarf, dust, bright light and vibrations prevail.

Whenever a robot cell is safeguarded, it is absolutely essential that rear access protection and a safe restart are guaranteed. PSENradar is not active while the robots are in operation.

 

Safe woodworking thanks to protection zone monitoring

When woodworking, including when sawing, it is often impossible to use optoelectronic sensors due to dust and flying swarf.

In this case, safe protection zone monitoring, comprising PSENradar and PNOZmulti 2, represents the optimum solution for detecting people inside the danger zone. Various applications can be safeguarded simply thanks to individually designed protection zones.

 

Using radar sensors to safeguard outdoor applications

Particularly outside, protection zones can be monitored safely thanks to radar sensors, on a gantry crane or on lifting devices for example. High temperature differences are at play here, as well as humidity due to rain, snow or fog.

If gantry cranes move in a certain direction, the radar sensors are used to ensure that nobody is present in this area.

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.
