New drive system from Siemens comprises Sinamics S210 and Simotics S-1FK2 motors, high dynamic performance and precision plus simple One Cable Connection (OCC), integrated safety functions and rapid commissioning

Servo drive system in five power classes from 50 to 750W.

The converters come with integrated safety functions and enable rapid engineering. In addition, they are connected to the higher-level controller over Profinet and allow simple commissioning using a web server and one-button tuning. Working in combination with the Simotics servo motors, they enable the highly dynamic movement of minimal loads as well as ultra-precise movement of medium and high loads. Applications include packaging machines, handling applications such as 'pick & place', wood and ceramic processing as well as digital printing.

The functional scope of the Sinamics S210 focuses on highly dynamic motor axis control, while the connected controller — for instance the Simatic S7-1500 or S7-1500T with its extended motion control functionality — takes complete charge of positioning functions for the connected drive axes. The converter is commissioned entirely using an integrated web server. The one-button tuning function allows automatic optimisation of control parameters, taking into consideration the behaviour of the connected mechanics by different dynamic levels. Siemens will be showcasing the relevant motors in shaft heights of 20, 30 and 40mm at next week's Hannover Messe event.

By using the Motion-Connect OCC to connect the Simotics S-1FK2 motors to the converters, the power conductors, encoder signal and brake are grouped together in a very thin cable of just 9mm diameter, and using a single plug. Its minimal cross-section makes the OCC cable thinner, lighter and more flexible than previous power cables, considerably simplifying the cabling process.

For drag chain applications, there is also a compact one-cable connection available which reduces the bending radius to almost half compared to conventional drag chain conductors.
