Our drive-based motion controller SIMOTION D integrates motion control, technology, and PLC functions directly into the drive. Your benefits: high machine cycle rates, reproducible product quality, significant cost savings, and reduced space requirements inside the control cabinet.
SIMOTION D requires about 50 percent less space than a conventional PLC with separate drive control. This makes the system ideal for distributed or modular automation solutions, particularly with complex machines requiring highly time-critical axis synchronization.
SIMOTION D and all the motion control functions are also integrated into the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal), thus permitting seamless engineering from the controller to the HMI.
A special highlight: For applications with especially complex multi-axes machines and demand for increased plant availability, several controllers can be connected by topologies – also across separated networks when using two PROFINET interfaces.
Depending on the SIMOTION D version, you can easily integrate SIMATIC HMI and decentralized peripherals via PROFIBUS, PROFINET, or Ethernet.
With SIMOTION D, safety functions are integrated directly into the control module of the SINAMICS S120 drive system, thus giving SIMOTION D users access to the entire range of SINAMICS S120 integrated safety functions.
Almost unlimited flexibility with SIMOTION
SIMOTION D enables you to master all high-end motion control challenges: The system delivers best performance in single- and multi-axle variants as well as with its compact design, scalability, and cost-efficiency. Configure your optimal application here.
