Siemens Industry Inc: Drive system expanded

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.

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.
