EMERGENCY STOP

The CTPS has an Emergency Stop (or E-Stop) function. When the E-Stop wire is grounded, the microprocessor control is bypassed, and full current is applied to the brake, regardless of the tension commanded. Though it is possible to overheat the brake with using the E-Stop function, it is intended to be a function to stop, no matter what, due to an emergency. If there is a loss of power, the E-Stop function will not work.
