The 1515SP PC2 T CPU and 1515SP PC2 TF CPU complement the range of Open Controllers and are suitable for motion control tasks such as gearing and camming, or the control of kinematics with up to four axes. Even challenging motion control tasks can be easily handled in combination with the Sinamics V90 PN, S210, and S120 servo drive systems.

The motion of selected kinematics in space is safely monitored with the "Simatic Safe Kinematics" software library for the S7-1500 1517TF-3PN/DP technology CPU in combination with Sinamics S120 (FW5.1), for example to protect the machine operator during his work. The speed of selected points, for example the tool centre point, and freely configurable zones such as the working and protection areas, are also monitored.
