Siemens Introduces SINAMICS S200 Servo Package for Future Manufacturing Applications

Aug. 23, 2023
The SINAMICS S200 Servo Package expands Siemens’ existing drive offering.

Siemens SINAMICS S200 servo package includes the S200 drive and SIMOTICS S-1FL2 motor with standard or flexible cable options, providing motion control for stand-alone and networked machines. This package expands the SINAMICS drive offering, giving a range of application possibilities to the standard servo market.

Key features of the servo package include:

  • Built-in web server and one-button tuning
  • Global standards, including UL, CE and SEMI 47
  • Security chip and UMAC protection
  • Machine simulation fit for digitalization
  • PROFITNET and Pulse Train versions of single-axis AC drive.

Functionality Includes Integration and Digital Twinning

The servo package is powered by the 1FL2 permanent magnet motors, which come with 17- or 21-bit encoders. The motors offer a power range up to 7kW and cater to low-, medium- and high-inertia requirements.

Other functionalities include the integrated brake resistor and integrated holding brake control, which enhances the servo drive’s efficiency and convenience. Their coated circuit boards (3C2) and a robust metal solution makes them durable.

For seamless integration into machine builder or user systems, the SINAMICS S200 servo package offers several options, including the embedded web-server and Startdrive software—which are integrated into the Siemens Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) portal.

The servo package is included in the SINAMICS DriveSim Basic model, which enables users to create a digital twin of the drive and PLC communication. This digital twinning process ensures accurate sizing and proper operation of the equipment to streamline project execution.

Applications include the emerging battery market and other E-OEM segments to packaging, woodworking machinery and solar wafer production.
