The safety relays can integrate with emergency stop systems to ensure that the brake is applied when an emergency stop is activated. This helps in rapidly bringing machinery to a safe state in case of emergencies. These safety relays can be integrated into the overall control system of the machinery, allowing for seamless communication and coordination with other safety and control components. PNOZsigma relays often provide diagnostic features and status indication to inform operators about the state of the safety functions, including the brake control system. Safety relays can monitor the release of brakes, ensuring that the release occurs safely and that the machinery is ready for operation. Safety relays can monitor the electrical circuits associated with braking systems. This includes checking for faults such as short circuits or open circuits in the brake wiring.
The PNOZsigma series is a range of safety relays developed by Pilz, a German company specializing in automation technology. These safety relays are widely used in industrial applications to ensure the safety of machines and processes. One of the key functions of safety relays in general, including those in the PNOZsigma series, is to monitor safety-related functions and initiate appropriate actions to prevent or minimize risks. http://www.pilz.com
