Siemens’ updated SINAMICS S120 firmware supports increased rated power.

Siemens announced an upgrade the firmware for its SINAMICS S120 drive system (V5.2) that integrats a web-server. With it, users can create, manage and delete parameter lists — even across axes. and backup/restore parameter settings. To test functions that are subject to license, it is possible to display and activate them in a temporary trial mode. By simultaneously connecting SINAMICS S120 Active Line Modules (ALM), operators can now use the Booksize format continuously up to a rated power of 228kW. The simultaneous connection of the 55kW ALM also enables a higher peak power for high dynamic machines than a single 120kW ALM. The space-saving internal busbar can be used by suitable arrangement of the DC link components. 55, 80 and 120 kilowatts (kW) of ALM can be connected in two simultaneous circuits.
