The Simotion Scout, the engineering system used for configuring Simotion motion controllers from Siemens Industry (Atlanta, GA), has been updated with a range of usability improvements. Simotion is the scalable motion control system that enables central machine functions to be implemented with just one controller. It is available in three variants: drive-based, PC-based, and controller-based. Simotion Scout facilitates configuration, programming, testing, and commissioning of applications. New features include automatic drive integration and detailed comparisons for graphics-based programming languages. The system features a simplified interface to the Siemens Sinamics drive system. Object-to-object assignment takes place via a new interconnection screen. In this screen, all compatible partners are listed hierarchically and the symbolic connection of the components to be interconnected takes place by simple selection.
