Flexible performance, a convincing choice for all applications
SIMOTION C can be used extremely flexibly. In addition to the interfaces already integrated, peripherals from the SIMATIC S7-300 modules range can be added to the motion controller, and it scores wherever maximum flexibility in selecting the drives is required.
The PLC-based system can handle a wide range of processor signals and also manages high-end motion control functionalities, such as path interpolation and distributed gearing.
The benefits of SIMOTION C
Integrated into the TIA Portal
SIMOTION C is also available in the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) in the C240 and C240 PN variants with all motion control and PLC functionalities. This facilitates seamless engineering, from control to HMI.
The available variants of SIMOTION C score primarily with their wide range of interfaces and easy expandability. PROFIBUS, PROFINET, and Ethernet ensure seamless communication with your production environment via the standard interfaces for servo, stepper, and hydraulic drives.
