This product is a licence for Siemens controlled machine tools. It is used to let the Siemens NC provide axes data (torques, positions, speeds, currents, control deviations, ...) as variables in the NC program. After licencing this, one can program synchronous actions which copy the axes data to the PLC. The PLC code of KOMET Brinkhaus transfers them to the ToolScope afterwards.

Short description of the delivered product (Quotation text)

  • Needed for machine tools with Siemens 840D controllers  to be able to get the drive signals (torque etc.) from the machine.

  • Siemens name "Evaluation of internal drive variables"


Additional information to the delivered product

  • For Siemens controls, the ToolScope can retrieve axes data either from this compile cycle "Tool&Process Monitoring" (TPM), or from the compile cycle "Axes Data Stream" (ADAS) or via synchronous action from the NC.

  • This order number is for installations at 840D pl controls. See this article (link) for 840D sl controls.

  • The Siemens order number for this product is 6FC5251-0AB17-0AA0. You can order it directly at Siemens, if you want. KOMET regularly

    • buys it and invoices it, if an end customer is supplied.

    • lets the OEM buy it, if the OEM is supplied.

      (Because an OEM regularly has slightly higher discounts as KOMET)
