The Sinamics S110 is an economical,
single-axis ac servo drive for simple positioning. It is easily commissioned, highly flexible,
has integrated safety functions and may be conveniently connected to
higher-level controllers. It is designed
for simple positioning or indexing applications with synchronous or induction
motors such as simple pick-and-place and feeding tasks, as well as with rotary
indexing tables. It is also suitable for stacking and handling applications,
feeders in printing and paper machines, and for ejectors in injection molding
machines. Other applications include tool positioning in machining stations and
positioning task in the wind and solar industry. The plug-and-play DRIVE CLiQ
interface on the S110 drive and our motors provides automatic configuration of
the system - no parameterization is needed.
This leads to extremely fast and easy system commissioning. A feature
not found in other low cost servo drives is integrated safety. The S110 servo drive has seven on board safety
functions which meet the safety requirements of Category 3 and Safety
Integrated Level 2. These may be controlled with on-board inputs or using a
Profisafe profile over Profibus, eliminating the needs for costly wiring and
contactors. The on-board positioning functions are simply and easily configured
graphically. Designed for simple
positioning or indexing applications with synchronous or induction motors, the
Sinamics S110 offers a unique, motor choice flexibility that normally is not
offered with simple servo drives. Operating in the 0.12 to 90 kW power range, the Sinamics S110 drive
features a wide array of positioning functions, PLC-like logic and arithmetic
functions as well as integrated safety. Profibus, Profinet (in preparation),
CANopen or analog/digital interfaces allow the Sinamics S110 to be easily
integrated into higher-level controllers. The DRIVE CLiQ interface on the S110
drive and our motors provides automatic configuration of the system - no
parameterization is needed.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
