SIMOTION C - Controller based
SIMOTION C is a Motion Controller in S7-300 design. In addition to already integrated interfaces, this Controller can be extended to include SIMATIC S7-300 I/O modules.
Two versions of the Motion Controller are available:
SIMOTION C240 and SIMOTION C240 PN.
These two versions have the same PLC and Motion Control performance. They are, however, equipped with different interfaces. The C240 comprises four interfaces for analog, stepper resp. hydraulic drives onboard. The C240 PN is equipped with a PROFINETinterface including 3 ports. In addition, both controllers are equipped with several digital inputs and outputs as well as two PROFIBUS interfaces including PROFIdrive and an Industrial Ethernet interface for communication.
SIMOTION C provides the following benefits:
through utilization of the SIMATIC S7 range of modules and
therefore optimum adaptation to the automation task
for servo drives (digital and analog connection)
for stepper drives or
for hydraulic drives
through user-friendly operation and
uncomplicated, fanless construction
