Company and Product News

From the Hannover Messe 2021, Siemens announced it is adding new servo motors to its Sinamics S210 single-cable servo drive system and launching a new smart condition monitoring system.

 

New motors extend the application range of the Sinamics S210 servo drive system.

Siemens is adding new servo motors to its Sinamics S210 single-cable servo drive system, thereby expanding its range of applications. Specifically, for use in the pharmaceutical and food industries, the company is launching the Simotics S-1FS2, a motor version with a stainless-steel housing, the highest degree of protection IP67/IP69, and high-resolution 22-bit absolute multiturn encoders. The servo motor thus meets all hygienic conditions and can be used for mixing and stirring, air conditioning and ventilating, dosing and filling, as well as conveying, packaging and storing a wide variety of end products in the food and beverage sector and in the pharmaceutical industry.

The new Simotics S-1FK2 servo planetary gearmotors also complement the Sinamics S210 drive system. They are used when high cycle rates need to be achieved with a lightweight and low-inertia gear design, or when inertia matching is required to move heavy loads precisely. The motors are ready mounted and as a unit available in a wide range of gear ratios and sizes, allowing them to be optimally adapted to different applications. Thermal dimensioning is done via the digital twin in the TIA (Totally Integrated Automation) Selection Tool.

With the new Simotics S-1FT2, Siemens is launching a servo motor that offers a wide range of different options for the Sinamics S210 servo drive system. For example, encoders with a resolution of up to 26 bits improve system accuracy, and the high IP67 protection rating and various motor coatings make the solution suitable for use in harsher environments. In addition, new machine options, such as higher rated speeds, are available for extended use.

The Sinamics S210 servo drive system consists of a servo converter and servo motor. All motors of the servo system are connected via a single cable that combines power wires, encoder signal and brake in one line. The range of applications includes highly dynamic servo solutions such as those found in handling systems, packaging machines and machine building applications. To meet the high demands on motion control functionality in these applications, for example dynamic positioning, gear synchronization or cams with multiple axes, the system works perfectly with the Simatic S7-1500 controller via Profinet IRT.

 

 

 

New Smart Condition Monitoring solution with IIoT sensors for industrial plants

Siemens is presenting Sitrans SCM IQ, a new Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solution for Smart Condition Monitoring, at the Hannover Messe 2021. It enables potential incidents to be detected and prevented at an early stage, thus reducing maintenance costs and downtimes, and increasing plant performance by up to ten percent. The wireless Sitrans MS200 multisensors form the hardware basis for installation on machinery, such as pumps, gear units, compressors, and drive trains, where they collect vibration and temperature data. Via a Bluetooth connection, this data is sent to the Sitrans CC220 industry gateway where it is encrypted before being transmitted from there to the cloud, in this case the MindSphere industrial IoT-as-a-Service solution.

The anomaly detection of the Sitrans SCM IQ system is based on machine learning. It constantly monitors and analyzes all sensor values and detects deviations from the normal operating state in advance. Anomaly notifications are sent via SMS and/or email, depending on the configuration and defined user group. The app can be used to document the anomalies of machinery behavior and makes them available to a specific circle of users. The Sitrans SCM IQ system comprises multisensors, gateway and app, and can be used in all industrial plants with mechanical or rotating components. It is scheduled to be available from summer 2021.

The Sitrans MS200 multisensors feature a compact industrial design with a high IP68 degree of protection. Bluetooth communication eliminates the need for cabling, which greatly simplifies installation and commissioning. The power supply is provided by replaceable industrial batteries, enabling a long service life. The Sitrans CC220 industry gateway ensures secure communication between the multisensor and the cloud. It is suitable for cabinet installation and has an external Bluetooth antenna. The high sample rate transmission enables accurate and reliable data analysis. The Sitrans SCM IQ mobile web application displays the states of the monitored systems and components graphically, anywhere, and anytime. Sitrans SCM IQ is scalable, which means that it can either be dedicated to monitoring a single application or all the machines in the plant.
