Using integrated drive safety functions, or instructions, can help your system meet specific performance criteria. This capability is changing the way people and machinery interact, giving designers the ability to leverage the strength of the machine combined with the flexibility and intelligence of the human.
This forms the basis of a whole new group of applications called collaborative applications.
When integrated into control and motion systems, pre-certified safety functions can help to simplify component selection, wiring design and test, save ?on project costs, and can help improve safety compliance and improve overall system reliability.
Right-sizing your control system’s safety is the healthy answer.
Understanding and implementing safety architecture, safety reaction time and integrated drive safety functions into your safety designs can help to save costs, reduce operator injuries and improve overall system reliability.
The first step is a risk assessment to determine if your safety system can benefit from a healthier, safety lifecycle.
