Practical planning tool

17 September 2018

Schmersal will present a practical planning tool at the trade fair Motek 2018 in Stuttgart, Germany: Machine manufacturers and machine operators can now easily and quickly configure a safe control system for their systems according to their individual requirements - with the PSC1 configurator, a 7 x 24-hour online tool.

The PSC1 Configurator is self-explanatory, easy to use, and provides a meaningful planning base for designers in just minutes. It is now available as a web version under this link:

The configurator is also convenient to use on iPads/touchpads using an iOS/Android app. 

Starting from a selection of safety sensors and safety outputs, this planning tool automatically chooses the optimum PSC1 safety control (by price) and also shows how much space the assembly needs on the DIN rail configured for each case. At the same time a parts list with article description, material number and details of the devices is generated. This parts list is linked with Schmersal’s online catalogue so additional information on the devices can be accessed as required. The parts list can be stored in Excel or PDF format and sent directly to Schmersal by email to obtain a quote customised to the user. 

The safety controller PROTECT PSC1 allows the adaptation of the safety functions to a wide variety of applications.
