The picture shows the new servo drive system.

The integrated Simatic Micro-Drive system comes in four different housing sizes for motor outputs of between 0.05 and 1 kilowatts. In each of the motor output versions, the 4-quadrant drive features an integrated disconnectible brake chopper, which enables regenerative braking during battery operation. All the system’s motion control functions are supplemented by additional controllers such as Simatic and Simotion. The STO, SS1, SLT, SLS, and SSM Safety Integrated functions are included with the Simatic Micro-Drive F and FIO variants, while the SBC safety function only comes with the FIO variants. In operation, they use the safety I/Os of the FIO variants. The TIA Portal can be used to activate every one of the safety functions. All operating data can be transmitted directly to the controller from the Simatic Micro-Drive, and transferred to cloud platforms such as MindSphere over MindConnect. To address customer requirements with maximum flexibility, Siemens relies on product partnerships with companies such as Dunkermotoren, ebm-pabst, Harting and KnorrTec when it comes to the motors and connecting cables used for Simatic Micro-Drive. The servo drive system is suited to a wide range of diverse applications such as precise positioning, shuttles for storage and retrieval machines or warehousing systems, automatic guided vehicle systems (AGVs) medical technology.
