Industrial Ethernet connectivity

Friday March 07, 2014
Siemens’ Sinamics S120 drive system has been expanded to include Profinet, Ethernet TCP/IP and EtherNet/IP connectivity, providing maximum flexibility for industrial Ethernet communication while offering innovative concepts for those wanting a single network for the entire plant, the company says. Sinamics S120 drives support Profibus DP and Profinet to ensure seamless communications between all the components involved in a typical automation solution, including HMI and I/O. Additional higher-level functions, including safety-integrated telegrams and synchronized mechanisms for motion applications, are also included. Profinet can transmit operating and diagnostics data simultaneously to enterprise-level systems using standard IT mechanisms (TCP/IP) for an integrated factory environment. The new addition of an EtherNet/IP stack offers another option for Sinamics users. Sinamics S120 drives are designed to handle virtually any drive requirement and facilitate vector, servo and variable-frequency drive (V/Hz) applications with the choice of single- or multi-axis offerings. www.siemens.com
