SIMOTION D - Our most responsive high-end motion control system
128 axes per controller with a minimal cycle time of 0.125 ms
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.
High performance on a small footprint
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.
Take advantage of SIMOTION D
Integrated into the TIA Portal
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.
Also flexible in communication
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.
Safety Integrated with SIMOTION D
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
