Servo Drive System
By DE StaffMotion Control Machine Building
Siemens’ Sinamics S210 converter offers servo package consisting of drive, motor and controller.
Siemens released its Sinamics S210 converter line, with integrated safety functions, in an initial offering from 50–750 watts. Connected to higher-level controllers via Profinet, the Sinamics S210 is commissioned using an integrated web server. One-button tuning functionality allows automatic optimization of control parameters. Integrated safety functions include STO (Safe Torque Off) and SS1 (Safe Stop 1). Both can be actuated using Profisafe, STO additionally using a terminal. Simotics 1FK2 motors are connected to the converters using a “One Cable Connection” (OCC), which includes the power conductors, encoder signal and brake —grouped together in a cable measuring just 9 millimeters in diameter.
