Pyloto
stands for safety

Our innovative blocking device Pyloto allows a consequent lockout-tagout procedure within automated guided vehicle systems with electro-sensitive protective equipment.

Pyloto helps you to provide a safe working area for your employees.

Protection for Employees

Pyloto allows the reliable protection of insufficiently protected working areas within automated guided vehicle systems.

Our blocking device Pyloto allows the reliable protection of areas which are insufficiently protected in particular during maintenance work or not covered by suitable personnel detection means.

Lockable

Pyloto is lockable and inhibits the accidental or unauthorized removal of the cone by the solid and usual lockout-tagout procedure.

Our blocking device Pyloto allows performing the usual lockout-tagout procedure (Pyloto-procedure) whereby Pyloto is secured with a personal padlock against accidental or unauthorized removal. The Pyloto-procedure is very easy and safe to perform for every person involved.

Per­for­mance Level

Pyloto uses the performance level of the personnel detection means that are installed in the automated guided vehicle.

Our blocking device Pyloto uses the performance level of the electro-sensitive protective equipment, whereby the reliable stop of the automated guided vehicle is ensured. Blocking areas through the radio link of the guidance control system does not comply with the required performance level D and is not secured against accidental or unauthorized restart.

Defined Positions

Pyloto is anchored in defined positions whereby the cone reliably stands in the correct position.

Our blocking device Pyloto avoids that the cone is placed at an incorrect position. With unmistakable positioning of the cone the reliable stop of the automated guided vehicle is ensured.

Why Pyloto?

Pyloto helps you to minimize risks within automated guided vehicle systems and protect your employees.

Automated guided vehicle systems fulfil very high safety standards without excluding residual risks.

 

These risks exist depending on the environmental conditions and the work tasks the employees perform in the operating zone of the automated guided vehicle.

 

Significant risks exist in particular during maintenance work where non-detection of persons or objects can result in serious harm.

 

For a safe stop of automated guided vehicles electro-sensitive equipment is installed. According to ISO 3691-4:2020 it must be executed with performance level D.

Certain areas of the automated guided vehicle system are not covered by suitable personnel detection means:

The automated guided vehicle can NOT detect persons

  • on load transfer stations such as conveyors or racks
  • on interfaces between machines
  • in high racks
  • in block storages or very narrow aisles
  • in lifted working cages
  • on lifted working platforms
  • on ladders

Certain objects are not covered by suitable electro-sensitive protective equipment:

The automated guided vehicle can NOT detect

  • very narrow objects
  • very flat objects
  • hanging objects

In these cases the protection of the working areas with Pyloto is indispensable in order to avoid personal injury.

Protect your Employees

Pyloto helps you to protect your employees in an easy and reliable way by consequently following the lockout-tagout procedure.

With our blocking device Pyloto areas within the automated guided vehicle system can be reliably blocked for example during maintenance work.

Pyloto allows the usual and solid lockout-tagout procedure whereby every person involved locks the cone with a personal padlock.

Our blocking device Pyloto uses the performance level of the electro-sensitive protective equipment that is installed in the automated guided vehicle. In this way the reliable stop of the automated guided vehicle is ensured. Blocking areas through the radio link of the guidance control system does not comply with the required performance level D and is not secured against accidental or unauthorized restart.

Blocking areas through the radio link of the guidance control system does not comply with the required performance level D and is not secured against accidental or unauthorized restart.
