In addition to the regular drive types such as positioning, speed and torque control, and numerous condition monitoring parameters, a safety function has been added. Besides the CANopen and Ethercat interfaces, the controller can also be operated as a standalone version. With the STO function, the power output stage of the electronics is safely switched off via two channels. If one of the two signals looses the input level of 24 VDC, the electronics switch off the transistors that control the motor phases. The electronics BGE 6060A STO is suitable for drives (brushless or brushed) in a power class from 200 W to 1200 W.

Due to the voltage range of 10 VDC to 60 VDC, the main applications of the BGE 6060A STO drive controller will be battery-powered applications such as AGVs (Automated guided vehicle) or industrial applications. For drive applications with STO functionality, the company also offers the appropriate controller for outputs
