Servodrives with integrated safety functions - User-friendly safety in mechanical engineering

Virtually all machine movements in an industrial environment present a hazard to the operating and maintenance staff. Typical situations requiring safe machine states are startup, setup, troubleshooting or any situation where persons are in direct proximity of the production process. Servodrives using amplifiers with the appropriate approvals and certifications help the mechanical engineer to comply with the applicable safety requirements. Safety functions integrated in the drive technology ensure optimal protection for employees in critical situations and reduce the workload of the controller – as this example shows.
