Siemens Answers with the SINUMERIK 802D sl Panel-Based Controller


The SINUMERIK 802D sl is an operator panel-based control system that combines the numerical control (NC), the programmable logic controller (PLC) and the human machine interface (HMI) in a single unit. It has the capability of five-axis machining (two of which may be spindles) and is the ideal solution for low- and medium-range milling and turning machines.

The SINUMERIK 802D sl provides the following benefits:

  • Increased efficiency and productivity
    through innovative planning and drive technology

  • Convenient operation and programming
    through proven DIN programming supported by advanced programming aids (cycles, contour definitions) and through ShopMill / ShopTurn-based setup

  • Perfect handling
    through the use of commercially available CF cards (64 MB to > 1 GB) for the storage, transmission and processing of part programs

  • Standard Ethernet and PROFIBUS protocols
    used for machine and communication

  • Maintenance-free
    no batteries or fan
