Servo Drive System
By DE StaffMotion Control Machine Building
Siemens servo package melds drive, motor and controller for a variety of motion control applications.
Siemens Automation unveiled a servo drive system that includes the company’s Sinamics S210 converter that designed specifically for use with its Simotics S-1FK2 motors. Offering 50 to 750 watts, the converters come with integrated safety functions and enable rapid engineering via motion technology objects in Simatic S7-1500 controllers. The converters connect to higher-level controllers via Profinet and are programmed by automatic motor parameterization and one-button tuning. Integrated safety functions include STO (Safe Torque Off) and SS1 (Safe Stop 1). Both can be actuated using Profisafe, STO additionally using a terminal.
