Pilz has introduced a safety and security package for safeguarding AGVs, including safe area monitoring for collision protection against human interaction and AGVs, plus safe evaluation units and tamper protection, whether it’s for guide path or free-nav AGVs.

The complete solution includes safety laser scanners PSENscan (collision protection for humans and AGVs), modular safety relay myPNOZ and configurable small controller PNOZmulti 2 (as evaluation units), plus the industrial firewall SecurityBridge (tamper protection). Various control and signal devices, such as the evaluation unit from the operating mode selection and access permission system PITmode fusion, PITreader, the E-STOP pushbutton PITestop and the muting lamps PITsign, complete an efficient monitoring package for users.

The Pilz solution also covers tamper protection on mobile applications. The integrated security solution via the firewall SecurityBridge protects automated guided vehicles or vehicle systems from unauthorized access during wireless communication. It ensures that no one can access the internal IT network of the mobile platform without authorization during operation. As such, the AGVs and their map data remain protected, and productivity is guaranteed.
