SafeMotion even more intelligent

Realizing safety functions in a decentralized manner and without any additional safety components: The new generation of SafeMotion comprises logic elements, such as for monitoring the safety door and guard control, the reset of the safety function or respectively the restart of the drive.

Significantly higher load

Tests for winches used in stage technology have shown: In case of an emergency stop, the real load is significantly higher than twice the nominal force. This means that all components involved in the power transmission have to be dimensioned higher accordingly.

Open for more safety

Simple combination of safe devices from a large variety of manufacturers in heterogeneous system solutions: The Multi-Safety Master functionality of SafeLogic processes safety signals of the safety periphery via the sercos automation bus as well as via PROFIsafe.
