Our most modular high-end motion control system
Expandable to up to 16 modules
Peripheral modules from the SIMATIC S7-300 line can be added to SIMOTION C complementary to the integrated onboard I/Os. The modular design in SIMATIC S7-300 design makes the PLC-based motion control system particularly flexible. With its outstanding variety of possible interfaces, SIMOTION C can be integrated in a wide range of environments.
The combination of PLC and motion control
Flexible, versatile, powerful: With its outstanding variety of interfaces, SIMOTION C is one of the most communicative motion controllers for servo, stepper, and hydraulic drives.
Flexible performance, a convincing choice for all applications
SIMOTION C can be used extremely flexibly. In addition to the interfaces already integrated, peripherals from the SIMATIC S7-300 modules range can be added to the motion controller, and it scores wherever maximum flexibility in selecting the drives is required.
The PLC-based system can handle a wide range of processor signals and also manages high-end motion control functionalities, such as path interpolation and distributed gearing.
The benefits of SIMOTION C
Flexibility through design variants
Communication for every situation
The SIMOTION C240 and C240 PN variants differ primarily in terms of interfaces. Both controllers have multiple digital inputs and outputs as well as two PROFIBUS interfaces with PROFIdrive and one Industrial Ethernet port.
Integrated into the TIA Portal
SIMOTION C is also available in the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) in the C240 and C240 PN variants with all motion control and PLC functionalities. This facilitates seamless engineering, from control to HMI.
The available variants of SIMOTION C score primarily with their wide range of interfaces and easy expandability. PROFIBUS, PROFINET, and Ethernet ensure seamless communication with your production environment via the standard interfaces for servo, stepper, and hydraulic drives.
SIMOTION C successfully in use
SIMOTION C has long proven its success in a wide range of application situations. Many well-known customers appreciate the flexibility of the drive coupling.
