Pilz: Pushbutton Unit PITgatebox

October 14, 2020

Simple operation of your safety gate system

With the pushbutton unit PITgatebox you can easily and flexibly control safety gate switches and systems. And there’s another added safety factor thanks to the integration of PITreader – user authentication. This enables user permissions to be checked via RFID key before the gates are operated. That way it’s possible to ensure that the right group of people has access to the plant, based on qualifications and the tasks of the relevant personnel.

Commands such as activate, stop or reset machine can be controlled based on successful authentication. As a result your machine has optimum protection against misuse or even manipulation. The robust control unit can be installed quickly and easily on standard profile systems thanks to the slimline design.

Pushbutton unit PITgatebox: new types for greater flexibility

Numerous new types of the pushbutton unit PITgatebox are available, enabling an even more flexible approach for your individual safety gate solution. Discover the various combinations of pushbuttons, switches and E-STOP pushbuttons.
