STO (Safe Torque Off) is now virtually standard when it comes to servodrives. Many manufacturers look away from other functions, often needed, because they lack capacity for sure development.
In NTSafedrive, NewTec presents a generic platform, independent of interface, to add safety functions to drives with integrated STO without costly development effort – including redundant monitoring logic, secure error detection, and diagnostics. The platform supports all conventional safety functions of IEC 61802-5-2 through SIL3.
