Siemens has updated its Simotion motion control system to version 4.4, offering users many new functions that make the engineering of motion control projects even easier and more efficient; applications such as packaging, can be quickly, easily and efficiently engineered, configured and commissioned through the Siemens TIA Portal.
A complete package for machine builders, system integrators, and end-users in printing and converting applications, Siemens’ Simotion Synchronized Drive Control (SDC) standard application solution allows more than 100 axes of motion to be engaged on system architecture.
North American users can now make full use of the benefits of a modular product, built to NEC (NFPA 70) standards, to configure common DC bus lineups and high horsepower drives, with optional UL/cUL listing.
Highly-configurable to suit a wide variety of applications, Generation II Simotics 1FK7 servomotors from Siemens feature seven shaft heights, Quick-Connect power connector, and high-accuracy 20- and 24-bit field replaceable encoders in 10 styles, all combined with a four-week lead time.
A pre-set list of integrated Simotics motor/Sinamics drive packages from Siemens Industry, Inc. allow an OEM or end-user to select the optimum solution for a variety of heavy-duty industrial motion control applications from a single source, backed by a full three-year warranty.
Siemens’ new generation of Simotion D445-2 multi-axis controllers extends the upper performance range with new features such as onboard Profinet interfaces, high-speed I/O, and with three times the performance, a single controller can support up to 128 axes of motion.
Siemens’ new single-axis Sinamics V20 drive for basic applications comes in four frame sizes covering the performance range from 1/6–20hp and is used to operate pumps, fans, compressors and conveyor systems, and features short commissioning times, easy operation, and cost and energy benefits.
See it at PACK EXPO--Booth # 4239! Siemens Sinamics S120 drive system has been expanded to include Profinet, Ethernet TCP/IP and EtherNet/IP connectivity, providing maximum flexibility for industrial Ethernet communication while offering innovative concepts for those wanting a single network for the entire plant.
Using a configurable options menu to exactly build the motor required, customers can now place an order for any first-generation Siemens SIMOTICS 1FK7 servomotor and have it drop-shipped in three weeks.
