SINUMERIK 840D sl with SINAMICS S120
The new SINUMERIK 840D solution line offers modularity, open architecture, flexibility, uniform operation, programming and visualization and provides a system platform with future-oriented functions for nearly all technologies. Integrated into the SINAMICS S120 drive system and complemented by the SIMATIC S7-300 automation system, the SINUMERIK 840D sl forms a complete digital system that is best suited for the mid to upper performance range. The SINUMERIK 840D sl distinguishes itself through its flexibility, maximum dynamics, precision, and optimum integration in networks.
The SINUMERIK 840D sl combines CNC, HMI, PLC, closed-loop control and communication tasks on one SINUMERIK NCU (NCU 710.2/NCU 720.2/NCU 720.2/NCU 730.2 PN). Up to 6 axes are available with the SINUMERIK 840D sl with NCU 710.2. On the NCU 720.2/NCU 720.2 PN/NCU 730.2 and NCU 730.2 PN, the number of axes and/or the performance of the drive control can be increased to 31 axes.
SINAMICS S120 can be used to solve complex drive tasks for a very wide spectrum of industrial applications and consequently designed as a modular system toolbox. From a wide range of matched components and functions, the user uses just the combination that best meets the user's requirements. All SINUMERIK 804D sl and SINAMICS S120 components, including the motors and encoders, are interconnected via a joint serial interface called DRIVE?CLiQ.
The SINAMICS S120 drive system is enhanced by a wide range of synchronous and asynchronous motors.
The safety relevant functions of the SINUMERIK 840D sl system are integrated in the four subsystems NC, PLC, speed controller and drive. The safety directed functions are of two channel design; there is a crosswise data comparison between the two channels.
