Nevertheless, there are always remaining risks that must be identified and assessed. Safety applications evaluate safety-relevant parameters and enable the corresponding actuators. Integrated safety technology and safe motion control functions satisfy the safety directives required by the machine manufacturing industry while also offering a high level of flexibility at the same time.
