HMK to supply the new Siemens SIMATIC CPU


The CPU 317TF-2 DP is used in machines where a control with a large program memory coincides with high processing speed, motion control requirements and Safety Integrated.  For the first time it is possible to integrate these functions onto a single Simatic controller.

Typical applications include Palletizers, Carton erectors, Flying shears, Labelling machines  and simple gantries with interpolation.

The typical application for motion control functions is for 3-8 axes. The maximum number of axes is 32. Along with accurate single axis positioning, the module is suitable primarily for complex motion sequences such as coupling to form a virtual or actual master, gearing, cam, or print mark correction.

The Safety Integrated functionality is compliant with the relevant standards: EN 954-1 (up to Cat. 4), IEC 62061 (up to SIL 3) and EN ISO 13849 (up to PL e).

As a result of its capacity, the CPU 317TF-2 DP is ideal for the use of SIMATIC Engineering Tools, for example programming with SCL or step programming with S7-GRAPH.
