What is a Free-Run Stop? It sounds like motor freewheeling. Are there differences between free-run stop and freewheeling?

Free-run stopping is a method of stopping a motor. It happens when the motor drive simply turns OFF its motor output connections. This allows the motor and load to coast to a stop. A mechanical brake may also be engaged to shorten the deceleration time. It is the same as freewheeling I guess.
