Written by

PLC Siemens S7-1200 is one of the most commonly used PLCs on the market, it meets most of today’s automation needs. Today will guide you to use PLC S-1200 pulse generator (Pulse Train Output – PTO) to control Servo Motor.

The selected Servo model is Panasonic Minas A6, this is also a commonly used type of Servo on the market with good quality and reasonable price (with Panasonic Minas-A5 Series, the control method is similar to Minas A6)

Siemens S7-1200 & Panasonic A6 “Wiring Diagram”

Below is the connection diagram between PLC S7-1200 and Panasonic Minas A6 Servo (Minas A5 also has the same connection)

+ Note: Need to choose Model S7-1200 Transistor Output to generate high speed pulses to drive Servo Motor/ Stepper Motor (DC/DC/DC Model)
