The hardware of the Control Unit of the Sinamics S120 drive system from the Siemens Drive Technologies Division has been optimized and provided with a more powerful chipset. Thanks to the increased performance compared to the previous CU320, more drive axes can now be controlled using the new CU320-2 Control Unit. Furthermore, a CU320-2 version with onboard Profinet interface is now also available. In addition to startup over Profibus, a Sinamics S120 can now also be commissioned via an Ethernet interface. The quantity framework of available digital inputs has also been extended. All in all, a wide range of multi-axis applications can now be implemented more simply and efficiently with the new Control Unit.
