Machine and work-in-process product protection is an important consideration for any motion control system. Regulations and governing bodies that create them have worked hard to outline and organize safety measures to ensure that operations meet at least the basic requirements for safe operation and the safety of surrounding personnel. Beyond the component specifications, what about the programming of the motion system itself?

This white paper will identify and explain some of the newest innovations in programmable protection features and quick-stop capabilities for advanced controllers and drives as well as provide examples for their use and implementation. Learn how to lower maintenance costs through features such as automatic fault detection and programmable limits.
