Modern manufacturing facilities are quickly evolving into more complex, highly sophisticated automation cells. Motion control tools — motors, drives, servos, steppers, actuators, etc. — are vital to production, but they also pose risks to operators around them. This requires a variety of safety features within those motion control tools, such as limit switches and I/O channels.
