SN65LVDS31: Enabling the LVDS outputs of SN65LVDS31

Part Number: SN65LVDS31
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: SN65LVDS33

Good morning,

It is obvious in the datasheet how to enable SN65LVDS31 and SN65LVDS33.

It is a bit strange there are two enable pins and only the way how to disable the output is making G pin low and making G- pin high. 

And I think this is valid for every output, there is no enabling only 2 output. Either 4 are on and 4 are off. 

To enable the IC trigging one enable pin is enough but to disable the output, both pins need to be trigged.

I use this device on a safety critical application. That is why I am double checking it with you.

Thank you in advance for your help.
