Six safety functions in one compact and easy to install module
As the level of automation in factories continues to grow, so does the importance of machine safety in industrial applications involving motors and drives. When safety is designed properly it brings sound economic advantages, such as increased productivity and minimum downtime without generating additional risks.
The optional safety functions module FSO-12 provides an easy way to extend the ACS880 series drives safety functions. This plug-in module is installed and cabled inside the drive, enabling different safety functions and safety diagnostics in a compact and reliable module.

- Safe stop 1 (SS1)
- Safe stop emergency (SSE)
- Safe brake control (SBC)
- Safely-limited speed (SLS)
- Safe maximum speed (SMS)
