Siemens Answers with Information about the SIMODRIVE POSMO A Motor-Drive Combination
A compact drive unit with an intelligent motor that can be integrated totally within the machine, SIMODRIVE POSMO A enables you to create a customizable, distributed drive solution. Combining both drive and servo motor allows a completely decentralized approach to motion control tasks, giving you greater freedom in designing your machine layout. The SIMODRIVE POSMO A comprises an integrated converter positioning control, motor control, optional gearing, and a PROFIBUS DP interface connection.
Central machine control is relieved of positioning tasks
Units and subsets of machines can be independently started without involving the central control (also called distributed intelligence)
Configuring / engineering costs of the hardware are reduced as interfaces are reduced
Coupling to the system is simplified through standard PROFIBUS DP protocols and programming using standard tools
Lower engineering costs are achieved through distributed drive architecture
Improved production time results from short set-up times and automated process variable setting through intelligent movement control
Types: 75W, 300W
Permanent magnet, brushless servomotors
Incremental encoders with up to 4096 increments/rev
Rated voltage: 24 VDC, 48 VDC
Rated speed: 3300 rpm (S1), 3500 rpm (S1)
Rated torque (without gearing): 0.36 Nm, 0.95 Nm
SIMODRIVE POSMO A opens up new potential for rationalization thanks to short set-up times and automatic setting of process variables. Typical applications are the adjustment of formats, end stops and valves – anything that can be moved into position at the press of a button.
