ATLANTA, GA | Siemens reports its Sinamics S120 drive system has been expanded to include Profinet, Ethernet TCP/IP, and EtherNet/IP connectivity, reportedly providing maximum flexibility for industrial Ethernet communication while offering innovative concepts for those wanting a single network for an entire plant. Sinamics S120 drives support, as standard, Profibus DP and Profinet to ensure what is said to be seamless communications between all the components involved in a typical automation solution, including HMI (operator control and visualization) and I/O. Additional higher-level functions, including Safety Integrated telegrams and synchronized mechanisms, for even the highest-level motion applications are also included in these solutions.
Sinamics S120 drives, featuring modular design and system architecture, are designed to handle virtually any drive requirement and facilitate vector, servo, and variable-frequency drive (V/Hz) applications with the choice of single- or multi-axis offerings.
