Configurable Safety Relays PNOZmulti

By Pilz

Many functions - one solution!

PNOZmulti is multifunctional, freely configurable and tailor-made for use in many areas of mechanical engineering. Use PNOZmulti to monitor safety functions such as E-STOP, safety gates, light barriers, two-hand and many more. PNOZmulti can also be used to perform standard control functions economically.

Instead of wiring, generate the safety circuit on the PC using an intuitive configuration tool. Store the configuration on a chip card and downloaded it to the PNOZmulti base unit.


Use the PNOZmulti to monitor all your safety functions:

  • E-STOP
  • Two-hand
  • Safety gate
  • Light grid
  • Enable
  • Operating mode selection
  • Standstill
  • Speed
  • Safety valves
  • Camshaft
  • Safety mats




PNOZmulti has a lot more to offer in addition to monitoring safety functions:


Unlimited application areas...
  • General mechanical engineering: e.g. lathes, milling and drilling machines
  • Plastics processing machines: e.g. blow moulding machines
  • Laser machines: e.g. laser welding and laser punching machines
  • Packaging machines: e.g. drink dispensing and palletising machines
  • Forming technology: Hydraulic presses, eccentric presses, press brakes, small presses and punch presses
  • Robot cells: processing, welding and spraying robots
  • Print and paper industry: e.g. printing, enveloping and paper machines


PNOZmulti guarantees safety in numerous industries: in airports, pleasure parks, cablecar technology, in the automotive industry, in the pharmaceutical industry and in many others.

Monitor drives for standstill and speed in setup and automatic mode up to and including Category 3 of EN 954-1! It's all possible with the PNOZmulti.

  • Up to 8 independent drives can be monitored
  • Up to 8 selectable set values plus standstill can be monitored on each drive, either through incremental encoders or proximity detectors
  • Data is evaluated in the PNOZmulti for further processing
  • The direction of rotation can be detected at the same time
  • The set values are simple to enter in the configuration tool PNOZmulti Configurator. Safety functions such as E-STOP, safety gates and operating mode selector switches are easy to configure and monitor using PNOZmulti. So applications such as opening a safety gate on standstill or safe reduced speed in setup mode are easy to implement

Use the modular safety relay PNOZmulti to control, monitor and upgrade presses. All you need is the press base unit PNOZ m2p and the PNOZmulti Configurator from Version 4.0.0.

You can configure all the necessary functions on the PC in the PNOZmulti Configurator. Specific BG-approved press blocks are available to monitor:

  • Operating modes such as setup, single-stroke and automatic
  • Safety light curtains in single-break or double-break mode
  • Camshafts with run monitoring/monitoring for broken shearpins
  • E-STOP, two-hand, safety gate, foot switch
  • Standstill and speed, using the expansion module PNOZ ms1p or PNOZ ms2p
  • Press safety valves, using the dual-pole semiconductor module PNOZ mo3p


PNOZmulti - The convenient solution for press upgrades too

PNOZmulti offers an efficient, flexible solution as an economical alternative to a conventional control solution. If the press does not undergo any substantial changes, its continued use is protected. On the subject of retrofit, Pilz also has its range of services to offer. From the planning stage to implementation of the upgrade measures and beyond to approval of the press by BG.
