Siemens' Simatic CPU 317TF-2DP controller combines motion control, safety and standard tasks in a single device
Siemens introduces the Simatic CPU 317TF-2DP controller, which is designed to combine motion control, safety and standard tasks in a single device. Possible applications for the device range from controlled single-axis positioning to synchronized sequences of motion, such as geared synchronous motion, curve synchronization or print mark correction. The synchronous axes can be coupled to a virtual master or a real master. For safety-oriented applications, the controller fulfills the requirements of all the relevant standards, including EN 954-1 up to Cat. 4, IEC 62061 up to SIL 3 and EN ISO 13849-1 up to PL e.
