|English term or phrase: loss of signal ground|
|sensors, safety, muting module|
These safety outputs are actively monitored to detect short circuits to the supply voltage, to each other, and to other sources of electrical energy.
This handshake verifies that the interface of the two devices is capable of detecting certain unsafe failures that may occur, such as a short-circuit to a secondary source of power or to the other channel, high input resistance, or the ***loss of signal ground***.
could you explain in other words what it is??
|English translation:a failure in the ground (earth) connection on the signal line|
Basically, I'm only saying exactly the same as the previous answerer, but I just wanted to express it slightly differently, in case it helps understanding!
Signals, just like power connections, usually have 2 connections (like + and -, etc.), but most often, for simplicity, the 'ground' (or earth in UK terms) or 'signal return [path]' is not explicitly mentioned; but it remains IMPORTANT, and a failure in this connection is very likely to prevent the circuit from working properly.
