The European Machinery Directive requires manufacturers to guarantee a machine that can be operated, equipped and maintained without endangering human beings if used as intended. Previous solutions required a separate safety equipment alongside the control equipment to ensure reliable protection from uncontrolled movements.
With its new integrated safety equipment, the new Servo Drive 9400 system from Lenze offers considerable advantages in terms of costs and benefits (drivebased safety). Together with the customer, Zühlke developed replaceable safety modules for this purpose featuring gradu-al, flexible functionality.
