Option of extending the telegram when using the “Positioning axis” technology object

SIMATIC S7-1500 CPUs support the connection of PROFIdrive-capable drives via PROFINET or PROFIBUS as a speed axis or positioning axis. To do this, a technology object communicating with the drive via defined standard telegrams is configured in the control program. In addition to the already existing standard telegram, additional parameter values shall be transmitted between the controller and the drive.

In this application example, a SINAMICS G120 is operated as position-controlled drive. A telegram extension is used in order to ensure that additional parameter values can be exchanged between the controller and the drive.
