SIMOTION D is a drive-based version of SIMOTION based on the SINAMICS S120 drive
With SIMOTION D, the SIMOTION PLC and motion control functionalities as well as the SINAMICS S120 drive software run on shared control hardware.
SIMOTION D is available in two versions:
● SIMOTION D410 is a compact control unit for single-axis applications and is snapped on to the SINAMICS S120 PM340 power module in blocksize format.
● SIMOTION D4x5-2 is a control unit for multi-axis applications in the SINAMICS S120
booksize format. SIMOTION D4x5-2 is the successor to the SIMOTION D4x5 control unit.
The integrated drive control of a D4x5-2 is based on a CU320-2, firmware version ≥ V4.x).
The following performance versions are offered:
– SIMOTION D445-2 DP/PN (HIGH performance) for up to 64 axes
– SIMOTION D455-2 DP/PN (ULTRA-HIGH performa
The D4x5-2 DP/PN can communicate with the following components via the onboard
PROFINET IO interface.
