Siemens Answers with the SIMOTION D Drive-based Motion Controller Hardware Platform

SIMOTION D

The compact, drive-based SIMOTION D motion controller platform combines SIMOTION with SINAMICS drives to cover machine control (motion, logic, safety, web server, hydraulic, stepper, temperature, process elements, PID, interpolation, and robotics), and drive control (servo, vector, and VHz) in a single drive-mounted hardware solution. The first multi-axis drive system to include high-end motion control and PLC capabilities, SIMOTION D turns the drive into the controller for all-machine functionality. Some of the benefits of this SIMOTION platform include the following:

Features

  • Very compact solution for high-performance applications

  • Various performance levels available in a compact form factor

  • SCOUT software for motion control, technological functions (safety, web server, hydraulic, stepper, temperature, process elements, PID, interpolation, and robotics), logic control, and drive control (servo and vector) for the entire machine

  • Connected to the drives components (inverter, rectifier, encoder) via DRIVE-CLiQ, which provides automatic configuration and simple cabling

  • Remote Periphery and digital drives are connected via PROFIBUS or PROFINET; onboard Ethernet for connection to HMIs, engineering PCs, higher level data collection systems (MES), and third-party hardware (TCP/IP, UDP, OPC, OPC XML)
