New SINAMICS CU250S-2 control units are now available from stock in the United States. They supplement the existing SINAMICS G120 control units with the inclusion of vector control with encoder feedback.
Additionally, the operation of single-axis applications with induction motors, as well as applications with basic positioning tasks placing high requirements regarding high I/O quantity, are supported. The new control units complete the SINAMICS G120 product portfolio at the high end and replace the CU240S with encoder interface, which was discontinued at the beginning of 2012.
The new CU250S-2 control units can be combined with the PM240, PM250, PM260 and PM340 power modules and support all SINAMICS G120 applications — with or without encoder evaluation.
Further, STO (“Safe Torque Off”), SBC (Safe Brake Control) and SS1 (Safe Stop 1) are integrated in all versions of the CU250S-2 control unit, enabling the implementation of applications with basic safety requirements. With the purchase of an optional software license, extended safety functions can be obtained, along with software for a single positioning function (EPos).
