SIMATIC Technology - Motion Control: Overview and Important Links

  • Entry
This topic page gives you an overview of the essential documents, entries and links on the topic of Motion Control. The topic Motion Control contains every control task to the operation of drives and capturing position values with the help of position sensors.



The tasks treated here reaches from steering for individual axes up to the method of several coordinate axes.

The motion instructions are based on the international PLCopen standard, thereby providing users a flexible means of programming their motion application without special knowledge. Applications can be programmed in all standard programming languages of IEC 61131.
