SIEMENS SIMOTION D435-2 Control Unit

SIEMENS SIMOTION D435-2 Control Unit

SIMOTION D is the compact, drive-based version of SIMOTION based on the

SINAMICS S120 drives family.

With SIMOTION D, the PLC, Motion Control functions and technology functions as well as the SINAMICS S120 drive software run on a common control hardware.

SIMOTION D435-2 DP/PN (STANDARD performance) are Control Units for multi-axis applications in the power range for up to 32 axes.



Display and diagnostics

  • LEDs to display operating states and errors
  • 3 measuring sockets
  • Service switch and mode selector
  • Diagnostics button

Onboard I/O

  • 12 digital inputs
  • 16 digital inputs/outputs (max. 16 as high-speed measuring inputs, max. 8 as high-speed output cams)


  • 6 × DRIVE-CLiQ
  • 2 × Industrial Ethernet (3 × Industrial Ethernet for D4x5-2 DP), of which one interface easily accessible at the module front

SIEMENS SIMOTION D435-2 Control Unit


  • Cost-effective thanks to the integration of PLC, Motion Control functions and technology functions directly in the drive
  • Employs the innovative SINAMICS S120 design
  • Compact design reduces control cabinet size
  • Ideally suited to modular and distributed machine concepts
  • User-friendly operation
  • Variable networking via a wide range of communication interfaces:
    • Industrial Ethernet, PROFIBUS DP and PROFINET IO onboard
  • Powerful thanks to a range of technology functions
  • Very simple engineering, from drive commissioning to open-loop control applications and Motion Control applications
  • Easy to service thanks to CompactFlash card, which can be easily replaced and contains all data (programs, data, drive parameters)
  • Very fast response as the interfaces between PLC and Motion Control are no longer required


The maximum permissible cable lengths should be taken into account when planning the cable layout. Functional faults can occur when using longer cables. The permissible length of PROFIBUS DP cables depends on the configuration. The DRIVE-CLiQ cables used for the SINAMICS S120 CU320-2 Control Unit can also be used for SIMOTION D4x5-2 Control Units.
