Servo Drive System Simplifies Motion Control for Machine Builders



The new Sinamics S210 drive system with Simotics S-1FK2 servomotors and Simatic S7-1500 controllers offer users a highly-dynamic servo package with integrated safety functions and quick commissioning.

The Sinamics S210 converter is designed for use with the Simotics S-1FK2 motors, offered in power classes from 50-750 watts. The converters come with integrated safety functions and enable rapid engineering via motion technology objects in Simatic S7-1500 controllers. They are connected to higher-level controllers via Profinet and are quickly and easily programmed by automatic motor parameterization and one-button tuning. Typical uses for this drive system include packaging machines, handling applications such as pick-and-place, wood and plastics processing, as well as life sciences and digital printing.

"The Sinamics S210 focuses on highly-dynamic motor axis control, while the connected controller, for example the Simatic S7-1500 or S7-1500T with its extended motion control functionality, takes complete charge of positioning functions for the connected drive axes," said Craig Nelson, Product Manager for Sinamics S-series drives.

The Sinamics S210 is commissioned using an integrated web server. 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 (STO) and Safe Stop 1 (SS1). Both can be actuated using Profisafe, STO additionally using a terminal. In conjunction with the rapid sampling and smart control algorithms of the Sinamics S210, a high-grade encoder system on the Simotics 1FK2 motor and the combination of low rotor inertia and high overload capability allow the servomotors to achieve enhanced dynamic performance and precision.

Simotics 1FK2 motors are connected to the converters using a One Cable Connection (OCC), which includes the power conductors, encoder signal and brake - all grouped together in a thin cable. Its minimal cross-section makes the OCC cable thinner, lighter and more flexible, resulting in a single motor plug connector and connection at the converter.
