Simotion D445-1 multi-axis controllers feature onboard Profinet interfaces, high-speed I/O and can support up to 128 axes of motion. The series can cover all levels of performance, from simple single-axis positioning tasks to complex synchronous applications, with short cycle times on a large number of axes. The system offers PLCS, motion control and advanced technology functions, as well as an integrated drive control. The onboard interface is equipped with an integrated three-port switch and facilitates different network topologies such as line, star or tree structures, without the need for additional external switches. The interface supports both real-time (R) and isochronous real-time (IRT) data exchange and can be operated as a controller or the device of another controller.
