Overview and selection

Selecting your servo drive system step by step

From the ideal servomotor for your application, the optimum servo converter along with suitable cables and connectors up to the right controller for you – we will explain step by step how you get to your servo drive system.

Step 1: The ideal servomotor

Teamed up in a drive system with a SINAMICS S210 servo converter, SIMOTICS S‑1FK2 servomotors provide short control and positioning times, fast and precise control response to disturbances and stable closed-control with a high dynamic performance.

Depending on the specific application, two servomotor versions are available:

  • SIMOTICS S-1FK2 High Dynamic: Highest dynamic response through a low inertia for highly dynamic applications with low moved masses.
  • SIMOTICS S-1FK2 Compact: Precise, stable control with medium to high masses to be moved with medium moment of inertia.

Advantages

  • Highest dynamic response as a result of the low rotor intrinsic inertia and the high overload capability
  • Space-saving design as a result of the optimized frame size with a high power density
  • High precision as a result of the high-resolution 22-bit single turn or multiturn absolute encoder
  • High IP64 degree of protection of the motor – can be optionally increased to IP65

SIMOTICS S-1FT2 servomotors offer a wide range of different options for the SINAMICS S210 servo system. For example encoders with a high resolution of up to 26 bits improve the system accuracy. A higher degree of protection up to IP67 as well as various motor coatings facilitate the use in harsh environments. In addition, new machine options are available, such as higher rated speeds.

Advantages

  • Highest accuracy using singleturn or multiturn absolute encoders with resolutions of up to 26 bits
  • Rugged in harsh and humid environments as a result of the increased motor degree of protection up to IP67 and various optional motor coatings.
  • Greater variety of winding designs compared to SIMOTICS S-1FK2 for higher speeds
  • Highest dynamic response as a result of the low rotor intrinsic inertia and the high overload capability
  • Space-saving design as a result of the optimized frame size with a high power density

SIMOTICS S-1FS2 servomotors complement the motor portfolio for the SINAMICS S210 servo drive system for special applications in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries, and plants and systems where standard SIMOTICS S-1FK2 and S-1FT2 servomotors are not sufficient. This stainless steel motor series for operation under strict hygienic conditions is available in three sizes in the power range 0.45 to 2 kW with torques from 3.1 Nm to 14 Nm.

Advantages

  • High IP66 / IP67 degree of protection for the complete motor, IP69k (30 bar) motor housing
  • Suitable for cleaning in place processes (CIP) using commercially available cleaning agents
  • Meets the requirements of the pharmaceutical and food industry: 1.4404 stainless steel enclosure, EPDM seals, bearing grease with NSF H1 approval
  • Design according to EHEDG guidelines
  • High accuracy thanks to high-resolution 22-bit multiturn absolute encoder
  • Shaft and flange compatible with SIMOTICS S-1FK2 and S-1FT2 servomotors

SIMOTICS S-1FK2 servo planetary gearmotors enable the highest cycle rates with a lightweight and low-inertia gearbox design, or inertia adjustment for precise movement of heavy loads.
These geared motor drives can be perfectly adapted to the application as there are a wide range of gearbox ratios and gearbox sizes. Based on the digital twin of the geared motors provided in the TIA Selection Tool, thermal dimensioning is just as simple as for a servomotor.

Eco gearbox versions:

  • SIMOTICS S-1FK2 with NRB gearbox
    The NRB is the lightest gearbox with the highest power density. As a result of its low-friction bearing design, it has a low intrinsic temperature rise and is suitable for high speeds.
  • SIMOTICS S-1FK2 with NRK gearbox
    As a result of their large output bearings, NRK gearboxes are suitable for higher radial and axial forces. Thanks to their low inner friction, these gearboxes are also suitable for higher speeds.
  • SIMOTICS S-1FK2 with NLC gearbox
    As a result of their pretensioned tapered rolling bearings, the NRC gearbox has a high degree of stiffness, and is the perfect choice for high radial and axial load levels. These gearboxes are protected against dust and water thanks to their IP65 sealing system.

Advantages

  • Optimum adaptation of the torque-speed or the mass moment of inertia relationship between the motor and load
  • Pre-assembled, tested and ready-to-run servo geared motor solutions

In addition to SIMOTICS S-1FK2 servomotors with planetary gearboxes, the coupling adapter SIMOGEAR KS-Adapter provides an additional flexible solution to connect various SIMOGEAR gearbox units with SIMOTICS servomotors of the SINAMICS S210 servo drive system.

Advantages

  • The Siemens SIMOGEAR gearbox portfolio can be simply connected using the KS Adapter. There are four different gearbox types available. Helical, parallel shaft, bevel and helical worm gearboxes.
  • Optimum adaptation of the torque-speed or the mass moment of inertia relationship between the motor and load

Step 2: The optimum servo drive

SINAMICS S210 servo converter

The SINAMICS S210 servo drive covers a power range from 0.1 up to 7 kW. In conjunction with a SIMOTICS servomotor from the S-1FK2 or S-1FT2 product series, the system is predominantly designed for discontinuous applications in the machinery construction domain that require a high dynamic performance. SINAMICS S210 fully leverages its strengths when the application involves precise positioning and motion control. Even with the highest dynamic performance, all motion sequences are implemented with the utmost precision. With its outstanding performance, SINAMICS S210 is convincing in packaging machines as well as in handling systems, in woodworking and plastics processing as well as in digital printing.

Step 3: The matching cables

Motor connecting cables – OCC (One Cable Connection)

All motors and frequency converters of the SINAMICS S210 servo system are connected up using just one single cable – this transfers the power, connects an encoder and controls the brake. Simple connection without special tools.

Available cables:

  • Motion Connect 500 cables are used for predominantly fixed routing
  • Motion Connect 800 cables when routing cables in moving cable carriers (drag chains).

The cables can be ordered prefabricated with the required length.

Prefabricated options

  • Prefabricated OCC motor connecting cable with SPEED-CONNECT plug connector (shield terminal is included in the scope of delivery)
  • Prefabricated OCC motor connecting cable with SPEED-CONNECT plug connector with Siemens IX signal connector on the converter side provided separately (shield terminal is included in the scope of delivery)
  • Prefabricated extension cable

Step 4: The matching controller

SIMATIC S7-1500 / SIMATIC S7-1500 T-CPU / SIMOTION

In conjunction with the SIMATIC S7-1500 and SIMATIC S7-1500 T-CPU, the SINAMICS S210 servo drive system with PROFINET is an optimally harmonized and coordinated motion control solution in the TIA Portal. Motion control functions – such as positioning, synchronous operation, cams etc. – are implemented using the SIMATIC technology objects available in the SIMATIC S7-1500 control. The appropriate fail-safe SIMATIC variants are available for safety applications. The connection to the SINAMICS S210 servo drive system is made via clock-synchronous PROFINET IRT and the safety connection (in case of faulty Simatic S7 - 1500 F) directly via PROFIsafe.
