SINAMICS S210 Servo Drive

December 2, 2016



The Servo Drive System For Medium-Complexity Higher Dynamic Motion Control Applications

The new, versatile SINAMICS S210 servo drive system is as compact and easy to handle, as it is powerful. The single-axis S210 converter is connected to the SIMOTICS S-1FK2 servomotor, which is specifically developed for it, using just one space-saving cable — and it provides integrated safety functions, as well. Commissioning is completely intuitive using a web server or through the Siemens Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal).

The SINAMICS S210 servo drive system offers 5 power classes ranging from 50 to 750 watts (0.07 to 1 Hp). The drive features integrated safety functions and streamlined engineering. Connected to the higher-level PLC over PROFINET industrial Ethernet, the drive allows simpler commissioning using a web server as well as one-button tuning. Working in concert with SIMOTICS S-1FK2 servo motors, SINAMICS S210 allows for highly dynamic movement of minimal loads as well as ultra-precise movement of medium and higher loads.

Typical Applications

SINAMICS S210 addresses a power range from 50 to 750 W currently. The system is particularly well-suited for dynamic, discontinuous applications found in OEM machines. The S210 fully leverages its strengths when the application involves precise positioning and motion control. To achieve high dynamic performance, all motion sequences are executed with the SIMATIC S7-1500 controllers and command the S210 converters via Profinet.

With its powerful performance, SINAMICS S210 is the ideal solution for packaging machines, along with handling systems, woodworking, plastics processing as well as digital printing.

Why Choose Sinamics S210


  • Integrated web server allows the drive to be commissioned and fully diagnosed without additional software – PLC can directly access the web server in the drive via PROFINET
  • One-button tuning, with selectable dynamic levels to adapt to the required machine dynamics, allows the controller settings to be easily optimized


  • Low moment of inertia and high overload capability of the motor
  • High-resolution encoder with fast scanning
  • Short cycle times on the machine are possible even with complex motion control
  • Motion control functions, e.g. positioning or cams, facilitate engineering perfectly coordinated with the drive


  • Universal, standardized safety concept – Safety Integrated
  • Integrated safety functions: STO, SBC, SS1, SS2*, SOS*, SLS*, SSM*, SDI*, SLA*, SBT* (*optional)
  • Seamless implementation of safety functions in accordance with SIL 2 (EN 61508) and PL d (EN ISO 13849-1)



Easy commissioning using a web server and One Button Tuning

    • Integrated web server allows the drive to be commissioned and fully diagnosed without requiring any additional software

    • The PLC can directly access the web server in the converter via PROFINET

    • One Button Tuning with selectable dynamic levels to adapt the converter to the required machine dynamics allows the controller settings to be simply optimized

    • Coming soon: Commissioning via TIA Portal

Optimized connection system using OCC (one cable connection)

    • Only one single cable is required to connect the motor and servo drive (motor power, encoder and brake)

    • Time is shortened and space saved as only one cable needs to be installed

    • The motor is compact with a small rotatable connector for simple installation and mounting even when space is restricted

    • Thin OCC for small bending radii ensures simple cable installation

Reduced engineering time with SIMATIC S7-1500 / T-CPU

    • Motion control functions through Technology Objects, e.g. positioning or cams, facilitate engineering that is perfectly coordinated with the converter

    • Tested application example for connecting the servo drive system to a SIMATIC control available at

Integrated safety functions

    • As standard: STO (Safe Torque Off), SS1 (Safe Stop 1) and SBC (Safe Brake Control) n SS2 (Safe Stop 2), SOS (Safe Operating Stop), SLS (Safely Limited Speed),

    • SSM (Safe Speed Monitor), SDI (Safe Direction) and SBT (Safe Brake Test)

    • Controlling the integrated safety functions via PROFIsafe, STO or SS1 also via terminal n Coming soon: Integrated safety acceptance test for safety functions

SIMOTICS S-1FK2 motors for increased performance

    • Low moment of inertia facilitates significantly higher cycle rates

    • High resolution encoder with fast sampling for stable and precise closed-loop control n Automatic converter parameterization using the electronic motor type plate

Can be used around the world

  • SINAMICS S210, SIMOTICS S-1FK2 and Motion Connect cables comply with all of the usual certifications — including UL-certified / recognized for North America
