SIMOTION D - Drive-based
Compact multi axis control built into the drive
In our SIMOTION D axis control system, the SIMOTION functions are directly integrated into the control module of the SINAMICS S120 drive system. The advantage of our drive-based motion control system is that it makes the overall system — consisting of the control and drive — significantly more compact and responsive.
In addition, our innovative multi axis control system offers a high degree of scalability and flexibility in either a single-axle or multi-axis control system and with a range of versions for diverse applications.
SIMOTION D is recommended in any application where the following requirements for multi axis control apply.
Decentralized automation concepts, particularly for machines with a large number of axes
Modular machines – also as an addition to SIMOTION P or SIMOTION C
Time-critical applications for coupled axes
