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.
