Siemens Industry Automation & Drive Technologiesvisit website


Siemens Drive Technologies is exhibiting the new C240 PN Simotion controller at the SPS/IPC/Drives Trade Fair. It is a S7-300 format member of the Simotion Motion Control System and has a Profinet interface. This enables efficiently control motion on up to 32 axes.

Its 35MB memory configuration makes the C240 PN an efficient controller of more complex machines and systems. Combined with the ET 200S high-speed Profinet I/O, this controller is suitable for control tasks in hydraulic applications. The Simotion Motion Control system is just as suitable for simple speed-controlled machines as for complex multi-axis machines.

With three hardware platforms and numerous software-based functionalities, this machine controller is suitable for a wide range of applications and requirements.
