Today's stage technology uses complex control technology. It's essential to monitor stage elements that are constantly in motion, for example. The control system PSSuniversal PLC and the new dual-channel standard rotary encoder PSENenco are used for this purpose. Stage hoist applications can be safely monitored in the automation system PSS 4000, for instance.
The following safety functions are performed:
- Position of the hoist is safely detected
- Speed is measured and monitored
The total solution (PSSuniversal PLC, standard rotary encoder PSENenco and PAS4000 software blocks) is standard-compliant in accordance with SIL CL 3 and PL e.
