Established companies increasingly invest into sustainability of their products and services, and into their corporate social responsibility. For numerous manufacturers of machinery and plants this creates also a vested interest to improve their performance in the areas of energy efficiency and machine safety.

Energy efficiency and machinery safety are not in conflict

Technical solutions for optimising safety and energy efficiency lead mostly to an improvement of costs of machinery and equipment. Savings in design and implementation, and compliance of validation costs can be achieved this way.

Substantial modification of machinery - CE certification

The optimisation of machinery and equipment often leads to a substantial change. It is important to note that a significant change to machinery or plant may require a new CE certification, in compliance with the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.

Parallel use with a fieldbus module Another new feature is the ability to use either the communication module PNOZ mmc1p ETH or PNOZ mmc2p serially in parallel with a fieldbus module.


Safe Ethernet connection

Expansion of existing plants; the automation system PSS 4000 can be added to existing plants which were implemented using the programmable control systems PSScompact or PSSmodular with Ethernet interface. It's now possible to migrate the automation system PSS 4000 into existing plants implemented using the programmable control systems PSS 3000.


New Official Journal for the EMC Directive

Following publication of the new EU Official Journal, the standards listed within the Journal can be regarded as harmonised under the EMC Directive 2004/108/EC. The Official Journal contains a current list of the standards harmonised under the EMC Directive 2004/108/EC and their reference data. The European Commission has published a new edition of the Official Journal for the EMC Directive.
