SINAMICS V60 with SIMATIC S7-1200

The ideal automation team

SINAMICS V60 and the SIMATIC S7-1200 PLC form an ideal automation team to address basic positioning tasks. By using predefined function blocks of the S7-1200, the most important tasks necessary in conjunction with positioning can be realized from the PLC program, for instance:

  • Reference point approach to synchronize the mechanicalsystem with the positioning electronics after power on

  • Jog to manually traverse the positioning axis forwards orbackwards

  • Traversing the positioning axis to a predefined position(absolute positioning) or through a predefined distance(relative positioning)

  • Executing motion sequences
