Siemens New Product Release


All SIMATIC S7-1500 CPUs support motion control functions. STEP 7 provides motion control instructions that are standardized in accordance with PLCopen for configuring and connecting a drive to the CPU. The 1517TF-3 PN/DP is designed for standard and fail-safe applications with very high requirements regarding program scope, networking and processing speed. This controller supports distributed fail-safe I/O via PROFINET IO and PROFIBUS DP with PROFIsafe telegrams. An additional integrated PROFINET interface with separate IP address can be used, for example, for network separation, for connecting further PROFINET IO RT devices, or for high-speed communication as an I-Device.

Motion control with the S7-1500 supports the following technology objects:
• Speed-controlled axes
• Positioning axes
• Synchronized axes (relative synchronism with synchronization, without specification of the synchronous position, setpoint linkage)
• External encoders
• Cams
• Cam track
• Probe

The technology CPUs of the SIMATIC S7-1500 offer advanced motion control functions:
• Extended synchronous operation functions
• Synchronization with specification of the synchronous position
• Actual value linkage
• Shifting of the master value at following axis
• Camming
• Cam disk
• Up to 4 encoder or measuring systems as actual position for position control
