PITmode from PILZ: Safety and security functions in one system

PITmode fusion

Safe and controlled access to protected zone.

PILZ presented new system PITmode fusion for operating mode selection and access permission.

This is the modular version of the operating mode selection system.

It consists of the PITreader reading unit with RFID technology and a separate evaluation unit (Safe Evaluation Unit – SEU).

The transponder keys are read and taught in the PITreader. The safe evaluation unit evaluates the selected operating mode to provide functionally safe switching between up to five operating modes. Safe permission management can also be solved comprehensively with PITmode fusion.

By separating the components, PITmode can be integrated flexibly into the design of existing control consoles and can be combined with existing pushbuttons.

PITreader – regulates access permission

With PITreader you can implement tasks regarding access permissions for plant and machinery. The options range from a simple enable and authentication of specific machine component functions to a complex hierarchical permission matrix.

PITreader with RFID technology is flexible as a standalone device or it can be used in conjunction with a PILZ safety controller. The transponder keys are available in a freely writable version and also with fixed, stored permissions. For manipulation protection the RFID keys can be coded with PITreaders with company-specific programming.

With the compact all-in-one device PITmode the pushbuttons for operating mode selection and the safe evaluation unit are integrated in one device. Operating mode and permission are displayed safely via LED. The individual key coding prevents manipulation. The operating mode selector switch is also perfect for international use with pictograms for machines tools.

Benefits of the operating mode selection and access permission system

  1. Functionally safe switching of the operating mode through self-monitoring up to PL d;
  2. Regulation of access permissions;
  3. High manipulation protection through company-specific coding;
  4. Integrated web server for configuration of PITreader and transponder keys;
  5. Read/write and data storage on key;
  6. Teaching of transponder keys on the PITreader via coding;
  7. Locking data areas on the key;
  8. Preinstalled group-based permission management;
  9. Integral user management;
  10. Multicolour LED ring for user information.
