Siemens integrated drive system provides OEMs with motor and drive packages from single source.
Siemens Industry released motor/drive packages based on a pre-determined list of motor/drive combinations that are packaged, shipped and invoiced together. The combinations are power-matched for 480V high-overload operation through a 20 hp range, 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. Application macros are provided in the Sinamics G120C drive; the terminals are pre-assigned at the factory and the parameters are automatically set. The SIMOTICS SD100 motors are cast-iron with inverter duty ratings in a 4:1 speed range for constant torque and 20:1 speed range for variable torque. Simotics SD100 units are severe-duty TEFC motors that meet NEMA Premium efficiency.
