The latest EL72x1-9014 version, STO (Safe Torque Off) safety functionality is now available in an extremely compact terminal design for DIN rail installation. The new servo terminals enable space-saving drive solutions with safety-related functions that can be directly integrated within the EtherCAT Terminal system.

The new servo terminals are said to streamline the implementation of STO safety functions, corresponding to safety level Cat 3/PL d, according to EN ISO 13849-1:2015. 

In conjunction with Beckhoff’s One Cable Technology (OCT), safety integration in an I/O terminal form factor results in a heightened ability to implement space-saving and cost-effective solutions with safety-related drive functionality. In addition, a 2-channel shut-off with corresponding contactors in the motor cable provides a reduction in cabling, space requirements and cost.
