Drive Fit for Tight Spaces

Dec. 16, 2010
Siemens’ Sinamics G110D drive platform is ideal for installation in close proximity to motors located throughout facilities where dust and water ingression are a concern. It offers improved functionality, increased energy efficiency, a smaller footprint, lower total cost-of-ownership and enhanced usability for material handling or packaging conveyors and carousels.

Plug-and-play power and control enables easier installation and an optional Intelligent Operator Panel (IOP) provides simple text application setup in a reduced footprint. Alarm status alerts and resolution advice cut troubleshooting time. The low-profile IP65 metal housing enclosure enables easier mounting near the motor, without a drive cabinet, meaning additional space savings.

The drive is suitable for either direct communication with a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) or control via I/O inputs. AS-Interface bus configuration and optional maintenance and manual-auto switch are incorporated into the drive, making it easy to integrate with other hardware in an overall control schematic. Integrated brake control and quick stop functions provide a higher degree of reliability in heavy-load operations.
