Siemens Industry Inc: Multi-axis motion controllers
Siemens’ new generation of Simotion D445-2 multi-axis controllers has new features such as onboard Profinet interfaces, high-speed I/O, and with 3 times the performance, a single controller can support up to 128 axes of motion.
Designed for all levels of performance--from simple single-axis positioning tasks to complex synchronous applications--with extremely short cycle times on a large numbers of axes. Scalability provides a high degree of flexibility. The system not only offers PLC, motion control and advanced technology functions, but also an integrated drive control based upon Siemens Sinamics S120 drives.
