MC First UKCA Certificate for myPNOZ Safety Realy 1 400

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.

MC Four Ways Omrons New Factory Drive Recorder Helps You Determine Root Causes 1 400

If a product is scratched by a robot but nobody was there to see it, how do you know what exactly happened? Intermittent problems in manufacturing lines (such as die casting) can cause millions of lost $$$ when repair workers are forced to troubleshoot without any idea of what may have caused the problem or when the problem will occur again.

Omron’s Factory Drive Recorder addresses this issue by letting you monitor machines or areas within your facility and capture what happened just after or prior to a triggering event. Whether your application involves progressive die casting, machine tooling, bottle inspection, high-precision welding, or something else, this solution can save troubleshooting time.

Omron looks at four ways that automation engineers, quality control engineers, system designers, purchasers, and maintenance personnel can benefit from this technology.
