When we speak of dynamically braking an actuator, what do we mean?

For general purposes, this is the process of actually crossing the motor wire leads to brake the motor. This can also be done electronically with smart actuators utilizing PCB assemblies.  There is an H-bridge design on the board that will cross the motor signals when the actuator is not in use, providing higher positional accuracy due to the actuator stopping faster and mostly eliminating coast.
