The new SIMATIC Drive Controller saves space by combining a safety PLC, motion controller and drive control in a single device.

Integration of a Technology-based CPU and the SINAMICS control unit (CU) within a single device saves panel space and cost in your design. The package also includes integrated safety functions, so no separate safety PLC is needed. And like all other SIMATIC products, the engineering takes place in the TIA Portal, saving time on programming and parameterization. Check out the video above where John and Rich discuss the features and application space in more detail.
