Pilz PITgatebox control unit

Thursday, 03 December, 2020 | Supplied by: Pilz Australia Industrial Automation LP



The Pilz PITgatebox control unit is now available in a total of 15 preconfigured types, which offer various combination options comprising pushbuttons, switches, emergency stop pushbuttons and the PITreader reader unit for user authentication. As a result, users can be flexible in implementing their individual safety gate application, in packaging, robotics, factory automation or woodworking for example. PITgatebox enables simple operation of safety gate switches or systems, but operators can also execute commands such as activate, stop or reset plant or machinery intuitively at the touch of a button.

All types of PITgatebox consist of a die-cast zinc metal housing with IP65 protection, which is resistant to shock, vibration and collision. Appropriate accessories for the control elements are also available. Due to the slimline design, the control unit can be installed quickly and easily on standard profile systems. A 12-pin M12 connection and rotatable end caps ensure a simple, flexible installation with little wiring effort.

Users obtain individual permission for access to the plant or machine on a coded RFID key, which they use to authenticate themselves on the safety gate: the key is read in PITreader and, with the appropriate permission, access is granted. Commands such as machine stop, unlock, lock or reset machine can also be controlled based on successful authentication. As only authorised persons gain access, the machine is protected against misuse or manipulation and downtimes are reduced.
