Sinamics S120 drives support, as standard, Profibus DP and Profinet to ensure seamless communications between all the components involved in a typical automation solution, including HMI (operator control and visualization) and I/O. Additional higher-level functions including Safety Integrated telegrams and synchronized mechanisms for even the highest-level motion applications
are also included.
Profinet can transmit operating and diagnostics data simultaneously to enterprise-level systems using standard IT mechanisms (TCP/IP) for an integrated factory environment. The new addition of an EtherNet/IP stack offers another option for Sinamics users. Having the flexibility to communicate with the most common automation systems via Profinet, EtherNet/IP or basic Ethernet TCP/IP makes the Sinamics drive system easily adaptable to the current Industrial Ethernet needs.
Sinamics S120 drives are designed to handle virtually any drive requirement and facilitate vector, servo and variable-frequency drive (V/Hz) applications with the choice of single- or multi-axis offerings. The innovative Drive-CLiQ interface provides a wide power range (0.25 – 1,600 hp) and highly-scalable solutions, including safety-integrated functionality and convenient start-up with automatic configuration of the drive system.
