Pluto Manager 

Pluto Manager is a software tailored for the safety PLC Pluto. Programming is done in ladder and together with the function block creates the structure of your safety functions. The software comes with predefined function blocks approved by TÜV to facilitate the work on designing the safety functions. 

Pluto Manager gives you a structured overview of Pluto’s, gateways and peripheral components in large and small projects. It gives you an overview and control of the sensors and actuators, and the reactions between them. Pluto Manager also contains manuals for the software and hardware that are connected and needs to be handled through the program. 

The interface gives the option to get the status directly from Pluto’s two bus options, AS-i and Pluto bus. There are also diagnostic functions and the option to export data. 

To be able to load the program code to the Pluto module you need a license key. The license key is obtained separately by contacting you local sales representative. 

CAD drawings for all Safety Products are available here.

For information and guidance on recommended function blocks to use for each product in Pluto Manager, see the Pluto block selection guide (PDF)
