Siemens' combination motor/drive packages are designed for customization
Siemens Industry's combination motor/drive packages are built to allow an OEM or end-user the option to select the optimum solution for a variety of heavy-duty industrial motion control applications from a single source. Choosing from a pre-determined list of motor/drive combinations, the customer makes the selection best suited to the application.
The motor and drive combinations are designed to be power-matched for 480V high-overload operation through a 20 hp range, made with I2T protection from thermal damage provided as a standard in both the motor and the drive components. The Siemens Intelligent Operator Panel (IOP) is included with these packages, allowing step-by-step drive start-up.
Application macros are provided in the Sinamics G120C drive for installation and wiring; the terminals are pre-assigned at the factory and the parameters are automatically set. The SIMOTICS SD100 motors are rugged cast-iron with inverter duty ratings constructed in a 4:1 speed range for constant torque and 20:1 speed range for variable torque. Simotics SD100 units are made to be severe-duty TEFC motors that meet NEMA Premium efficiency.
Communications selections on these matched motor/drive combinations include RS485 with USS and Modbus protocols. A Profibus variant is also constructed for a Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) solution.
