Precision servodrive targets demanding applications

18 May, 2023

Siemens has launched a dynamic servodrive system consisting of a precision drive, powerful servomotors and easy-to-use cables. The Sinamics S200 system is aimed at applications that need precise speed and torque control, such as electronic production machinery, and winding and unwinding machines in battery manufacturing and cell assembly.

Due to its compact design, the system can occupy up to 30% less space in control cabinets, and allows device arrangements to be optimised.

The flexible, scalable system spans the power ranges 0.1–1kW (200V) and 0.2–7kW (400V). It can be combined with low-, medium- or high-inertia motors. The drive offers optimised speed ripple, cogging torque compensation, 17/21-bit single-turn and 21-bit multi-turn encoders, and cycle-synchronous communication via Profinet IRT with a minimum of 250µs.

When used with a controller such as Siemens’ Simatic S7­1500, the system is said to offer a robust, future-proof motion control system that is easy to operate thanks to its integration with Siemens’ TIA Portal platform, as well as its built-in Web server (LAN/WLAN) and one-button tuning function.

The Sinamics S200 servodrive system is aimed at applications in the battery, electronics and other demanding industries.

Depending on the application, standard or high dynamic cables can be used.
