Configuring a SINAMICS S120 with Startdrive
SIMATIC S7-1500 CPUs support the connection of drives as speed axis or positioning axis via PROFINET, PROFIBUS or via an analog drive connection. As of TIA Portal V15, it is additionally possible to configure a SINAMICS S120 drive in a TIA Portal V15 program using the “SINAMICS Startdrive V15” software and to operate it by means of Motion Control instructions.
In this application example, a SINAMICS S120 drive is operated as position-controlled drive. This drive shall serve as master axis for a second drive configured with gear synchronization. The drives are configured using "SINAMICS Startdrive V15".
