“Key In Pocket’ System From PILZ Protects Against Restart And Tampering – Safe And Secure Plant Maintenance
The new maintenance safeguarding “key-in-pocket” system from PILZ protects operators from an unauthorized machine restart, allowing maintenance work to be carried out safely. Digital maintenance safeguarding is based on the access permission system PITreader and guarantees safety and industrial security: only authorized persons can access the plant or machine during the maintenance process – tampering and misuse are excluded.
Extensive plants often have a large number of danger zones, which are protected using safety fences. This places particular demands on safety: for example, it’s important that only authorized persons have access for maintenance work. At the same time, it’s essential to ensure that nobody is left in the danger zone when the plant restarts.
