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 amount of plastic clogging the ocean continues to grow. Some startling, not-so-good news has come out recently about the roles plastic is playing in the ocean, as well as more heartening news about efforts to collect and reuse it.
Some of our culture's most enduring robots appeared in the 80s. The Aliens series produced another evil android, and we saw light robot fare in the form of Short Circuit. Two of the great robots of all time also showed up: The Terminator and RoboCop.
