AUSTIN, Texas—Siemens Corp. is introducing a new servo drive system to simplify motion control for machine builders.
The package consists of a drive, motor and controller for a wide variety of motion control applications, according to a Siemens release.
Sinamics S210 converter is specifically designed for use with the new Simotics S-1FK2 motors, for a new servo drive system for an initial offering from 50-750 watts, the company said. The converters come with integrated safety functions and enable rapid engineering through motion technology objects in Simatic S7-1500 controllers. They are connected to higher-level controllers via Profinet and are programmed by automatic motor parameterization and one-button tuning.
Applications for the new system include packaging machines, handling applications such as pick-and-place, wood and plastics processing, life sciences and digital printing, according to Siemens.
The Sinamics S210 is commissioned using an integrated web server, the company said. One-button tuning functionality allows automatic optimization of control parameters, taking into consideration the behavior of the connected mechanics by different dynamic levels.
Integrated safety functions include Safe Torque Off and Safe Stop 1, and both can be activated using Profisafe. Additional functions are currently in the preparation phase, Siemens said. Simotics 1FK2 motors are connected to the converters using a One Cable Connection, which includes the power conductors, encoder signal and brake, all grouped in a cable 9 millimeters in diameter. This results in a single motor plug connector, and connection at the converter has user-friendly plugs with push-in terminals.
