TIA Portal Technology Objects for Siemens Motion Control Systems

Through PROFINET connectivity, SIMATIC S7-1500 PLCs empower drives to function as positioning, speed, or synchronous axes. TIA Portal provides the means to manage a SINAMICS S210 drive by incorporating a technology object within its software framework, thus enabling its operation through Motion Control instructions execution. In this instance, a dual setup of SINAMICS S210 drives is employed within the application. The initial drive is tasked with position control, acting as the leading axis for the subsequent drive, which operates in synchronous mode. Within this application context, there are two axes in operation: a leading axis referred to as the 'positioning axis' and a following axis identified as the 'synchronous axis,' each fulfilling unique roles within the system.
