Siemens SINAMICS S110

The specialist for standard positioning applications

The SINAMICS S110 positioning drive with its built-in basic positioning system is ideal when you need to position machines axes simply, quickly and accurately.

While the positioning drive relieves the higher-level machine control system of this task, this flexible converter actually offers much more. As an alternative to a basic positioning system, the positioning drive can be assigned set values as a speed axis using analog input or a field bus interface, such as PROFIBUS, CAN, PROFINET. 

Additionally, the positioning drive can control a wide range of built-in safety functions with on-board safety terminals without intricate additional circuits. As a modular single-axis drive with servo functionality, the positioning drive covers a power range from 120 W (1 AC 230 V) to 90 kW (3 AC 400 V). It can be used to position both synchronous servomotors and induction motors.


  • Easy positioning with synchronous motors and induction motors
  • Built-in safety functions
  • Easy commissioning with electronic type plate in DRIVE CLiQ motors and STARTER
  • Automatic controller optimization with auto-tuning
  • Easy connection to higher-level PLCs using standard communication modules and Totally Integrated Automation (TIA)

Typical Uses:

  • Handling equipment
  • Feed and withdrawal equipment
  • Stacking units
  • Automatic assembly machines
  • Laboratory automation
  • Tool changers
  • Adjuster axes
  • Tracking equipment, e.g. for solar panels
  • Healthcare, e.g. patient beds


Voltage and performance range:
0,12 - 0,75 kW at 1AC 200...240 V
0,37 - 90 kW at 3AC 380...480 V
Open-loop control / closed-loop control:
Servo control (speed, position)                                                                                     




What safety category are the drive safety functions rated to?

SIL2, Cat.3/PL d

How can I test and document the safety configuration?

By using a a script, the Safety Acceptance Test and associated documents can be efficiently executed/recorded. The latest script is available at:

What could be causing a  return value of 8090 for DPRD_DAT/DPWR_DAT?

The hardware ID may be incorrect on the LADDR input. The required ID is the one used by the telegram - not the ID of the drive. For Startdrive, this can be found in the device view by going to Properties > General > Telegram configuration > [device name] > Start address. For drives not configured with Startdive, this can be found in the device view byhighlighting the row of the telemgra in Device overview, then navigate to Properties > General > Hardware identifier.

I have a flashing green COM light on my Control Unit. What does this mean?

Communication from a master device is partially or yet to be fully established. Therefore, cyclic communication is not possible.

How can I review the previous alarms that are not currently active on a drive?

Go to “Drive” -> ”Diagnostics” -> ”Alarms history”
