Motion Controller from FAULHABER with STO shutdown

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). 

"The new Motion Controllers ensure safety in the collaboration between human and machine, even in an Industry 4.0 environment," emphasises product manager Volker Hausladen. "At the signal of a safety device – such as a light curtain – the driven unit is switched off in compliance with standards and the event is signalled or visualised locally and on a higher-level system." At the same time, the devices meet the requirements of highly interconnected processes with their communication capabilities. They are available with USB, RS232, CANopen and EtherCAT interfaces. As a result, they are able to communicate in real-time with the higher-level process control technology and offer great flexibility in usage applications.
