Siemens expands Sinamics S120 drive systems to include Profinet, TCP/IP, and Ethernet/IP connectivity

Siemens' Sinamics S120 drive system has been expanded to include Profinet, Ethernet TCP/IP and EtherNet/IP connectivity, thus providing increased flexibility for industrial Ethernet communication and offering new concepts for those wanting a single network for the entire plant. 

Sinamics S120 drives support, as standard, Profibus DP and Profinet to ensure seamless communications between all the components involved in a typical automation solution, including HMI (operator control and visualization) and I/O. Additional higher-level functions including safety integrated telegrams and synchronized mechanisms for the highest-level motion applications are also included in these solutions. 

Profinet can transmit operating and diagnostics data simultaneously to enterprise-level systems using standard IT mechanisms (TCP/IP) for an integrated factory environment. The new addition of an EtherNet/IP stack offers another option for Sinamics users. Having the flexibility to communicate with the most common automation systems via Profinet, EtherNet/IP or basic Ethernet TCP/IP makes the Sinamics drive system easily adaptable to the current Industrial Ethernet boom.
