Overview of the engineering functions of SINAMICS DCC V15.1 and V16

SINAMICS DCC (Drive Control Chart) is a technological enhancement of SINAMICS S120/S150/G130/G150 drives systems. It enables  the device functionality of the drive systems to be individually expanded by freely available closed-loop control, arithmetic and logic blocks.

The user-friendly configuration tool SINAMICS DCC V15.1/V16 facilitates easy graphical configuration of the blocks and their integration in the drive unit. SINAMICS DCC V15.1/V16  provides users with a new level of versatility when adapting these systems to the specific functions of their machines. It enables complex applications such as for winders or traversers to be implemented.  

Startdrive V15.1 or V16, the same version of SINAMICS DCC and SINAMICS firmware >=V5.2 are required to use SINAMICS DCC .
