An integrated basic positioner (EPos) enables a wide range of positioning functions.

Designed for simple positioning or indexing applications with synchronous or induction motors, a new drive from Siemens Energy & Automation Inc., offers motor-choice flexibility not normally offered with simple servo drives. Operating in the 0.12 to 90 kW power range, the Sinamics S110 drive features a wide array of positioning functions as well as integrated safety. It can be used for simple pick-and-place and feeding tasks, as well as with rotary indexing tables. It is also suitable for robotic and handling applications, feeders in printing and paper machines, and ejectors in injection molding machines. An integrated basic positioner (EPos) enables a wide range of positioning functions, ranging from relative and absolute traversing with specified velocity and acceleration to more complex functions, such as on-the-fly positioning and referencing. As a result, it is possible to save up to 16 target positions or traverse paths in the drive, including the relevant motion parameters. The unit has seven on board safety functions, which meet the safety requirements of category 3 as defined in EN 954-1, and Safety Integrated Level 2 as defined in EN 61508. Profibus, Profinet (to come), CANopen, or analog/digital interfaces allow the Sinamics S110 to be integrated with multiple higher-level controllers. This was a Control Engineering North American print edition Product Exclusive for May, 2009.
