In the industrial world, it is critical to incorporate fail-safe technology where possible in applications such as crane steering machines, robotic lift, and assembly line robots to name a few. By doing so, you ensure you meet Safety Integrity Level (SIL) standards as found in the IEC 61508 standard. Also, you significantly increase human safety and protect products and property.
This fail Safe Motor Control solution incorporates the MPC574xP family of MCUs that delivers the highest functional safety standards for industrial applications. The MPC574xP family incorporates a lockstep function that serves as a watchdog function to flag any problems with the MCU including a programmable Fault Collection and Control Unit (FCCU) that monitors the integrity status of the MCU and provides flexible safe state control. Also, this device is a part of the SafeAssure program, helping manufacturers achieve functional safety standard compliance.
