Latching Faults

A drive will inhibit its output if it experiences a fault. If the fault condition goes away, the drive will normally re-enable. Sometimes it is desirable for the drive to remain inhibited even if the fault goes away. This behavior is called a latching fault.

  • In some cases it is safer if the drive stays turned off if a fault occurs - this can be true if continued operation may potentially cause a collision or damage the end product
