Safe motion monitoring can be implemented through speed monitoring and is used to protect operating and maintenance employees. As a result, potentially hazardous movements are safely detected and appropriate countermeasures can be initiated in time.
Safe working practices with the safety gate open
Reduced setup times as there is a better insight into the setup area
Greater work safety due to safely limited setup speed
Faster access to the machine once standstill is initiated
Protection of the plant against mechanical damage
In accordance with the Machinery Directive, when the drive is brought to a standstill, the operating status must be safely monitored and maintained. The motion monitoring safety functions – whether external or drive-integrated – must also be guaranteed. The term “safe” is understood in terms of functional safety from the relevant machinery safety standards EN 61508 and EN ISO 13849-1.
