About Pilz PZE X4P

The X4P contact expansion module is used to increase the number of instantaneous safety contacts available on a base unit. The Pilz PZE X4P uses a single-channel operation so one input circuit affects both output relays.

The safety relay should be installed in a control cabinet with a protection type of at least IP54. The unit needs to be mounted securely on a vertical DIN rail (35 mm) by using a fixing element (e.g. retaining bracket or an end angle).

Pilz PZE X4P Features

Features of the X4P include: 

  • Meets EN 60947-5-1, EN 60204-1 and VDE 0113-1 requirements.
  • Positive-guided relay outputs (4 safety contacts (N/O), instantaneous).
  • LED indicator for switch status channel 1/2.
  • Plug-in connection terminals (either spring-loaded terminal or screw terminal).
  • Meets the following safety requirements; 
    • Safety functions on the existing circuit are transferred to the contact expansion module as the output relays are monitored via the base unit's feedback loop.
    • Safety function remains effective in the case of a component failure.
    • Earth fault in the feedback loop: Detected, depending on the base unit that is used.
    • Earth fault in the input circuit (the output relays de-energise and the safety contacts open).
