The new Simatic® CPU 317TF-2DP controller from Siemens combines motion control, safety and standard tasks in a single device to integrate and combine devices for the plant floor environment, reducing footprints and improving efficiencies.
The Simatic CPU 317TF-2DP controller reduces wiring, coding and implementation times. Possible applications for the new device range from controlled single-axis positioning to complex, synchronized sequences of motion, such as geared synchronous motion, curve synchronization or print mark correction. The synchronous axes can be coupled to a virtual master or a real master. For safety-oriented applications, the controller fulfills the rigorous requirements of all the relevant standards, including EN 954-1 up to Cat. 4, IEC 62061 up to SIL 3 and EN ISO 13849-1 up to PL e.
