SIMATIC S7-1500T Kinematics Addon

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
The library Kinematics Addon offers a variety of comfort functions for specific kinematics use cases. The functions can be adapted easily to the application needs.

Following functionalities are available:
  • Sampling any kind of data
    • Freely configurable sampling of data
    • Pre-Trigger buffering
    • Different sampling modes

  • Retract kinematics after zone collision
    • Retract on zone entry path
    • Easy setup and use

  • Sequence FB for interrupt / continue of a path motion over disabling / enabling the kinematics axes (e.g. emergency stop):
    • Activation of simulation mode for TO kinematics
    • Pulling of kinematics axes to original position
    • Deactivation of simulation mode for TO kinematics

For more features check the software documentation.

The application can run on all SIMATIC 1500T CPU types with FW 2.9 or higher.
