Electrical Equipment & Systems

AC Power Modules combine optimal capacity and form factor.

July 25, 2014

Able to be mounted side-by-side without derating, PM240-2 power modules comprise 230 V, 3-phase line supply units that can extend use of Sinamics G120 drives. Quick-connect connectors on motor and cable sides facilitate in-field commissioning and maintenance, while removable terminals for line supply, motor, and braking resistors accelerate replacement when service is required. Features include controllable, variable-speed fan, and Frame size A has max rating of 3 kW Low Overload (LO).

Decentralized Servo Drive enables flexible machine design.

March 28, 2014

Affording flexibility for new and existing machines, Sinamics S120M compact, ready-to-connect motor with integrated drive offers option of moving motor inverter outside control cabinet and directly onto motor to reduce cabinet space and required cooling. Decentralized axes are connected back to central S120 components in cabinet via hybrid cable and AM600 adapter module. Pre-assembled hybrid cable contains all encoder and power cables and serves multiple S120M axes via daisy chaining. Read More

Wizard-based Portal helps users program motion applications.

October 29, 2013

Totally Integrated Automation Portal's configurator navigates users through programming control system and drive paramaterization. Once wizard is completed, application is commissioned. Functionality eliminates dual entries, communication is automatically established, and data is consistent. Along with control programming and visualization, solution includes Sinamics Startdrive for drive engineering. All generated components in application library can be saved via drag-and-drop operation. Read More


Drive Control Software supports printing and converting.

September 18, 2013

As open source application, Simotion Synchronized Drive Control is customizable for printing line or converting machine's requirements. Program can synchronize all motion functionality between multiple Simotion motion controllers over Profinet network, allowing 100 axes to be engaged on system architecture simultaneously or grouped, as needed. Solution can be applied to gravure, offset, flexo, and digital printing presses in wide, mid-range, and narrow web format, as well as finishing equipment. Read More
