SINAMICS Positioning a G110M/G120 (Startdrive) with S7-1500 (TO) via PROFINET/PROFIBUS with Safety Integrated and HMI

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
This application example shows how to configure the positioning function of a SIMATIC S7-1500 and offers a HMI to test the functions.

SIMATIC S7-1500 CPUs support the connection of PROFIdrive-capable drives via PROFINET or PROFIBUS as a speed axis or positioning axis. The standardized PLCopen blocks make configuration particularly easy.

This application example shows how to configure and commission the SINAMICS G120 and the SIMATIC S7-1500 using the technological functions of the SIMATIC S7-1500.
The application example does not include a reusable block. Instead, it provides a project that allows the user to conveniently familiarize with the properties of the motion control instructions (PCLopen blocks) and test them via HMI.
