Drive-based integrated safety: How advanced drive designs can be used to better implement mandated safety functions on production machines
Today's advanced drive designs can be used to better implement the mandated safety functions on many types of production machines. Without the need for redundant or hard-wired back-up devices, or for safety functions being incorporated into a PLC or other motion controller, machine designers and end-users alike can benefit from fast, accurate and fully compliant safety features integrated directly into the machine's drives package. The result is more immediate detection and response, plus space savings, wiring reduction, external component cost elimination and overall improved machine effectiveness. Learn more.
