Does the system have protection against using data from a sensor with internal or wiring issues?
Safety related angular encoders used in other industries are having a dual architecture inside, the labeling of signals SIN,COS, and COM on an conceptual drawing could indicate this. (Two independent channels: one analogue, and one digital)
This does however not protect against a sensor with a frozen, or damaged mechanical vane from providing false data.
