Safety for human-machine collaboration

20.6.2018

Safety for human-machine collaboration FAULHABER has brought to market a new series of Motion Controllers with redundant safety shutdown according to the STO principle (Safe Torque Off). The power supply to the motor is thereby immediately interrupted, preventing it from producing torque. The devices of the MC 5004 P STO series are thereby certified for operation up to safety integrity level SIL3 (IEC 61800-5-2) and up to performance level PL e (EN ISO 13849-1).
