Pilz: PNOZ m C0 Standalone Base Unit – Smallest Safety Controller PNOZmulti 2

July 6, 2023

The standalone base unit is extremely compact at just 22.5 mm width. With eight freely configurable safe inputs and four safe semiconductor outputs, it monitors up to four safety functions on machines. Depending on the application, it can be used to implement safety requirements up to PL e of EN ISO 13849-1 and SIL CL 3 of EN IEC 62061. PNOZ m C0 is safe, high-performance and highly economical for small machines in a range of industries and application areas, such as packaging, on robot cells or in the food and beverage sector. Expand the powerhouse with safe sensor technology – such as the safety gate system PSENmlock, safety light curtains PSENopt II or PSEN safety switches.

You can use the safe small controllers PNOZmulti 2 irrespective of machine type, plant type, country or industry. If the number of safety functions on your machine increases, you can migrate to the modular, expandable base units – PNOZ m B0, PNOZ m B0.1 or PNOZ m B1. So the saying “Many functions – one solution!” still applies, even after 20 years on the market!

PNOZ m C0 standalone base unit advantages:

  • Create the safety circuit using the software tool PNOZmulti Configurator, available free of licence costs
  • Maximum flexibility: Inputs and outputs are freely configurable in the PNOZmulti Configurator
  • Tailored costs, save space in the control cabinet: as narrow as a safety relay, as powerful as a safety controller
