SIMOTION – the high-end motion control system
Merging performance and modularity
SIMOTION, the proven high-end motion control system, features optimal performance for all machine concepts as well as maximum modularity. With SCOUT TIA, you can rely on a consistent engineering that is integrated in the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal). Drive-integrated SINAMICS safety functions are of course also available for your customized safety concepts.
With the new software versions, SIMOTION supports object-oriented programming (OOP), the OPC UA communication protocol, as well as user program tests in the engineering without hardware. Thereby, SIMOTION further optimizes its benefits with regard to modularity, openness, and efficient software development.
SIMOTION, the proven high-end motion control system, combines powerful hardware with efficient engineering and innovative software. Here you can see the highlights of our modular motion control solution.
SIMOTION at a glance
If it’s high-end, it’s SIMOTION
Reduce time-to-market while boosting efficiency and flexibility – those are the challenges currently facing industry. Achieving this while maintaining or increasing product quality calls for machines that are especially powerful, versatile, and precise.
To compete on a global scale, industry requires powerful, versatile, and efficient motion control applications that work with precision. Machine builders have to adapt to these requirements and also continue to understand, implement, and reliably meet the very specific and individual requirements of their industrial customers.
The proven, modular, and scalable SIMOTION portfolio featuring high-end functions is the optimal solution for motion control applications in machine building when modularity, maximum precision, and speed are required. You can use SIMOTION to implement a wide variety of tasks and requirements with regard to motion control and adapt them for any industry with a motion control focus.
SIMOTION – perfectly integrated in the entire digitalization process
Leveraging the benefits of digitalization
You can also leverage the benefits offered by increasing digitalization: With the modular technology object approach, libraries for industry-specific applications, and the project generator, SIMOTION makes it possible to create reusable software modules and significantly boost efficiency during the development of your machines.
The integration into the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) with SCOUT TIA makes seamless engineering possible from the controller to the HMI. Object-oriented programming (OOP), the OPC UA open interface, and SIMOSIM simulation software all pave the way for shorter development and commissioning times.
