Siemens has matched its new advanced Simatic S7-1500 T-CPU controller with its popular Sinamics servo drive system, simplifying complex motion control tasks.
The matched controller and drive system are integrated into Siemens TIA Portal engineering framework, making them suitable for electronic gearing, camming and other advanced motion control applications. Additionally, the new controller is suitable for safety applications, eliminating the need for multiple CPUs for standard, safety and motion control automation tasks.
An easy-to-use integrated Cam Editor simplifies configuration, optimization and diagnostics of variable, position-dependent transmission ratios between leading and following axes. The cams can be changed or readjusted for product changes, even while the machine is running.
