  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
SINAMICS DCC V17 is available for delivery effective immediately. SINAMICS DCC V17 is the innovative technological enhancement of SINAMICS drives in the TIA Portal.

SINAMICS DCC (Drive Control Chart) is a technological enhancement of the SINAMICS S120/S150/G130/G150/MV drive systems and for SIMATIC Drive Controller. It enables the device functionality of the drive systems to be individually expanded with freely available closed-loop control, arithmetic and logic blocks. The user-friendly configuration tool facilitates easy graphical configuration of the blocks and their integration in the drive unit.

Through the Siemens application support, a series of application examples (winder, synchronous operation, cross-cutter, etc.) are available for download on the basis of SINAMICS DCC and can be deployed as a ready-to-use solution or be individually adapted or expanded.

SINAMICS DCC V17 is an option package for Startdrive Basic or Advanced V17 and has its own setup and own engineering license. The engineering license purchased for V17 is also valid for all older SINAMICS DCC versions.
