One system for all automation functions

06 May 2009

With the automation system PSS4000 Pilz offers a solution for all machine control and safety technology functions. The aim is to simplify the decentralisation of control functionalities and reduce the engineering work. The software platform PAS4000 enables users to retain a centralised perspective of decentralised, distributed control structures.

PSS4000 gives the benefits of a decentralised control structure, without the increasing complexity this would normally involve. The interface problems associated with the connection of multiple control systems are consigned to the past.

As a result, decentralisation can help achieve a higher level of reusability and increase the level of standardisation – when identical control programs and subfunctions are used. This in turn allows machine elements to have a modular structure, so that identical components can be reused with minimum effort. The benefits can be seen in greater availability, due to local error reactions, and higher productivity as a result of shorter reaction times across the whole system.

The tools used on the software platform PAS4000 for all programming and parameter setting functions are fully compatible, with standard data and user interfaces.

With PAS4000, standard control functions and, for the first time safety functions too, can be completely created and managed symbolically.
