Courtesy: PilzPilz's Release 13 for the PSS 4000 automation system features a non-persistent online change function that allows individual changes to be transferred to the control systems for safety-related applications. Users save time during commissioning because the entire program does not need to be compiled and loaded to the PSS 4000 hardware. The "non-persistent online change" function now allows individual changes to be fed into one or more control systems of the automation system PSS 4000 without it being necessary to compile and load the entire program. The changes are fed in without stopping the control system - the new program becomes active on the head modules with the next possible clock cycle after downloading. The function is designed to not only improve the handling of safety in hectic commissioning processes as well as simplify and accelerate commissioning. Other features include a device interface for communication with Profinet networks as a communication stack. This also makes it possible to use the same hardware to operate different communication connections, including Modbus/TCP and EtherNet/IP.
