Examining Functional Safety in Motion Control ApplicationsThe International Society of Automation (ISA) defines functional safety as the detection of a potentially dangerous condition that depends on automatic protection or correction to prevent an unwanted consequence or reduce its severity. The automatic protection system is designed to respond appropriately to errors, hardware failures, and operational stressors. When every specified safety function is carried out and meets the set level of performance, functional safety is achieved.
