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.

Typical applications

SIMOTION D is recommended in any application where the following requirements for multi axis control apply.

  • Compact machines

  • 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
