Reliably detecting the steering angle for protective field switching

In order to adapt the automated guided vehicle’s protective fields to its exact driving scenario, the steering angle must also be captured by the drive and steering drives. When the MOC1 Flexi Soft motion control module and the AFS/AFM60S Pro safety encoder interact, the steering angle is recorded in the Flexi Soft CPU for further processing.
