Pilz Releases M12 Interfaces for Safe Signal Transfer for Railways

Pilz has released two control heads with M12 interface for its PSS 4000-R automation system designed for the railway industry.

It allows safe signal transmission to be provided on and beside the track, even under adverse conditions.

Two new control heads with interfaces for M12 plug-in connectors expand the railway range of the automation system PSS 4000-R from Pilz: one head module with PLC functions and one I/O head module.

Both are suitable for application conditions in accordance with the CENELEC standards EN 5012x. Thanks to the four-pin coded M12 interfaces, they ensure interference-free communication on rail vehicles and in signal and telecommunication facilities, even with difficult environmental conditions and high mechanical loads.

Suitable I/O modules with railway approval are available for safe digital and analogue signal processing. T-type I/O modules can be used for the extended temperature range of -40 to 70°C for non-safety-related signal processing.

Pilz offers standardised, safe industrial components and systems for the railway sector.
