The modular SINAMICS S120 drive is the modular system for high-performance motion control applications in industrial plant and machinery construction.
Customized solutions can be implemented based on a wide range of components and functions that are optimally coordinated with one another. For instance, high-performance single-motor drives and coordinated drives (multi-axis applications) with vector or servo functionality.
Users of the SINAMICS S120 drive will benefit from a system that offers higher performance, enhanced productivity and improved flexibility.
Regardless of whether the application involves continuous material webs or cyclic, highly dynamic processes – SINAMICS S120 means increased machine performance in many industries.
This includes packaging and printing machines, machines for the processing of plastics, textiles, paper and wood, cranes and hoisting gear, handling and assembly systems, machine tools, rolling mills, test beds, and machines in the renewable energy sector.
Benefits include …
SINAMICS S120 is designed to allow free combination of power and control performance
Greater flexibility with central control intelligence
Free performance selection for vector and servo control
Lower lifecycle costs for operation of the plant
It is thus possible to parameterize, program and commission all components with the Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) engineering platform without any system discontinuities
The primary functionality is implemented with elaborate “embedded” software
Seamless implementation of safety functions in accordance with SIL 2 (EN 61508) and PL d (EN ISO 13849-1)
The SINAMICS S120 drive system comprises a modular system for high-performance applications. It offers AC/DC single drives and coordinated DC/AC drives for multi-axis applications. However, it is also a distributed version for modular plant and machine concepts as you can see from the options below.
The SINAMICS S120 devices are cooled in various ways depending on the power rating. These include internal air cooling, external air cooling, liquid cooling and water cooling.
Typical applications of the SINAMICS S120 are …
Moving: Pumping, ventilating and compressing
Processing: Continuous processes with high speed and torque accuracy
Positioning: Positioning of individual or multiple coordinated axes
Machining: All applications in material processing.
