Geared motors with integrated inverter

March 17th, 2014, Published in Articles: Vector

The Siemens Drive Technologies Division is pursuing the integration of drive components and now presents the Sinamics G110M, a distributed inverter designed as a motor-integrated inverter for Simogear geared motors. The result is an integrated drive system (IDS) characterised by its space-saving design and by ease of installation. The optimal interplay of the geared motors with the new, motor-integrated inverters provides a high level of efficiency and functionality, particularly for conveyor applications. As integrated drive systems, the geared motors demonstrate their true strengths (such as high power density, refined torque levels and high efficiency). In combination with Simogear, the Sinamics G110M is delivered fully pre-configured ex works. The new inverter with protection up to IP66 in turn allows versatile use of the compact system and enhances its functional scope. This is a modular system which is simple to install and easy to commission and operate. Plugable connections for all input/outputs facilitate installation. Cabling is reduced by looping through the 400 V AC, 24 V DC and communication signals.
