First UKCA Certificate for myPNOZ Safety Relay from PILZ

MC First UKCA Certificate for myPNOZ Safety Realy 1 400

July 27, 2022

 

Safety relay myPNOZ ready to use in Great Britain even after 2022

Pilz is the first company in Germany to receive from TÜV Süd the UKCA certificate for the modular safety relay myPNOZ. As such, myPNOZ will be accepted on the British market even after January 2023.

In the wake of Brexit, the existing CE mark used in the European Union will be replaced in England, Wales and Scotland by the UKCA certificate. UKCA stands for United Kingdom Conformity Assessment and will be mandatory once the transition period expires at the end of 2022. From this point onwards, all products sold on the British market must have UKCA certification.

In collaboration with TÜV Süd, Pilz has already secured certification for the modular safety relay myPNOZ. As a result, Pilz can continue to supply its customers seamlessly in the UK. It also guarantees that customers who use Pilz products in their plant and machinery can also continue to export to Great Britain in compliance with directives.

 

In the coming months, many other Pilz products will be certified to UKCA. So even once the transition period ends on 1 January 2023, there will be a comprehensive portfolio available to import into Great Britain.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
