Positioning to Print Marks with SINAMICS V90 and SIMATIC S7-1200 (TO)

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
A sensor detects print marks on a band feed. The positions of these print marks are stored with a SIMATIC S7-1200 and are intended for positioning a SINAMICS V90.

The TIA Portal V14 enables the control of a SINAMICS V90 drive via the pulse/direction interface (PTO). For this purpose, the SINAMICS drive can be configured in a SIMATIC S7-1200 controller as technology object and can be operated using Motion Control instructions.

In this application example, a cutting device is implemented. For this, print marks on a band have to be detected and their position has to be stored as setpoint values for positioning the band. The band is positioned by means of a SINAMICS V90.
