- Extended safety functions for Sinamics S210
- New firmware version V5.1 SP1 provides comprehensive protection of machine functions
- Encoders of Simotics S-1FK2 motors with new 22-bit resolution
Siemens extends the Sinamics S210 servo drive system to include the Extended Safety Integrated functions. The existing basic functions such as Safe Torque Off (STO), Safe Stop 1 (SS1) and Safe Brake Control (SBC) are now complemented by extended functions provided by the new firmware versions V5.1 SP1: Safe Stop 2 (SS2), Safe Operating Stop (SOS), Safely-Limited Speed (SLS), Safe Speed Monitor (SSM), Safe Direction (SDI), and Safe Brake Test (SBT). All of these functions ensure machine functions are provided with comprehensive protection. Also the encoders of the Simotics S-1FK2 motors have been updated, to support the new Extended Safety functions and provide an encoder resolution of 22 bits. The motors fitted with the new encoders can be used as replacement parts for previous models. Typical uses for the new drive system include in particular packaging machines, handling applications such as Pick & Place, wood and ceramic processing as well as digital printing.
The converter is activated via a web server and one-button tuning. The interaction between servomotors, quick sampling and smart control algorithms for the converters, a high-quality encoder system, low rotor inertia and high overload capacity provide this drive system with high dynamics and exceptional accuracy.
