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.
The company says it anticipates high-definition video for home security and other uses will be the next mature technology integrated into the IoT domain, hence the introduction of its MatrixCam devkit.
Siemens and Georgia Institute of Technology are partnering to address limitations in the current additive manufacturing design-to-production chain in an applied research project as part of the federally backed America Makes program.
Most of the new 3D printers and 3D printing technologies in this crop are breaking some boundaries, whether it's build volume-per-dollar ratios, multimaterials printing techniques, or new materials types.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
