New generation of drives
01 August 2007
IndraDrive with ‘Safety on Board’ is a new generation of drives from Rexroth, certified to EN 954-1 Category 3 and offering an extremely short response time of 2ms. Safety on Board is thus able to offer decentralised safety at the location of the incident without the need for additional hardware or routing through the control, even with high-speed axes.
In addition to improved protection for the operator, the safety technology increases the availability of machines, as production can be restarted more quickly following a manual intervention, than was previously the case. A package of safety functions is offered on this new drive.
Alongside the safe standstill and safe operational stop functions with stop categories 0, 1 and 2, it is now also possible to monitor ‘safe movements’ at reduced speed, limited increment, limited maximum rotational speed or defined direction of rotation in the drive itself.
