Siemens Integrated PLC and Motion Control with New CPUs in the SIMATIC S7-300 Programmable Controller Family
The innovative SIMATIC S7 315T-2DP and S7 317T-2DP, integrate automation and motion control within the proven family of compact SIMATIC S7-300 PLCs. Users can combine standard IEC-61131 PLC programming with PLCopen compliant motion control functionality in a single high performance unit, fully integrated with the Siemens Totally Integrated Automation architecture.
In addition to exact single-axis positioning, the Technology CPUs are particularly suitable for complex, synchronized motion applications. The use of isochronous PROFIBUS also enables the deterministic control of high-speed and time-critical processes for distributed axes and synchronous operation applications.
These Technology CPUs are designed for machines demanding both high PLC performance and motion control functions, for applications such as: Filling and Wrapping; Processing and Assembly; Flying Shears; Carton Assemblers and Labeling Machines; etc.
Integration of automation and motion control in a single SIMATIC CPU provides significant savings in engineering and operation:
The S7-300 Family
Since its introduction in 1994, the S7-300 programmable controller has been the choice of many of the worlds leading manufacturers. The S7-300 has the worlds largest installed base of any of its competitors, with hundreds of thousands of units in use across the globe.
PLCopen is a vendor independent organization involved in the development and design of international standards for motion control applications. For more information on PLCopen please visit the web site at PLCopen.
