They are also part of the TIA Portal and feature a digital twin in Startdrive, the drives commissioning tool from Siemens. The G220 has an integrated web-server for commissioning and are equipped with an IIoT module so it can be integrated into cloud and edge applications. The G220 is available in a UL Type 12 (IP55) wall-mount design and a special conformal coating option is also available for the operation of a drive in the harsh environments. It also meets hardware based SIL 3 functional safety requirements.
