The motion of selected kinematics in space is safely monitored with the "Simatic Safe Kinematics" software library for the fail-safe S7-1500 1517TF-3PN/DP technology CPU in combination with Sinamics S120 (FW5.1), for example to protect the machine operator during his work. The speed of selected points, for example the tool center point, and freely configurable zones such as the working and protection areas, are also monitored.
Siemens offers the right controller for an extremely wide range of automation requirements. The range of scalable Simatic controllers, comprising Basic, Advanced, Distributed and Software Controllers, all have the same range of functions. The S7-1200 Basic Controllers are used for compact automation solutions, and the S7-1500 Advanced Controllers for complex tasks, while the ET 200SP Distributed Controllers are suitable for distributed applications, and the Software Controllers for PC-based applications.
