Siemens launches new Sinamics G120X converter series

Sinamics G120XSiemens has launched the new Sinamics G120X converter series that are optimised for use in pump, fan and HVAC applications in infrastructure markets and industries such as for building control and water or wastewater environments

With a power range of 0.75 to 630kW, Sinamics G120X converters are configured throughout for cost-optimised and resource-saving operation across all voltages and supply networks. According to the company, the characteristic compact design aims to save space in the control cabinet and enable motor cable lengths of up to 150 metres.

Jason Peel, head of motion control, Siemens UK, said, “In an increasingly competitive and pressurised environment, introducing digitalisation to boost productivity can seem like a huge challenge.”

Sinamics G120X has been designed to help users reach new levels of simplicity, energy efficiency and durability across their sites, Peel added.

Simple, reliable and efficient

The Sinamics G120X series is expected to provide ease of operation and can be commissioned using the Sinamics Smart Access Module and the IOP-2 operator panel. The converters are in compliance with all relevant EU energy-saving standards and offer an operating efficiency level of more than 98 per cent.

“Their comprehensive range of integrated application-specific functions such as flux reduction for adjustment in line with the actual load, Eco Mode which ensures best possible performance and minimal losses coupled with low dynamic loads and optimised output power or Keeps Running Mode to reduce speed prior to a shutdown,” explained the company.

Suitable for digitalisation

Siemens said that the converters can be linked to MindSphere over Sinamics Connect 300, analysing operating data gathered from the converter, the drive train and the machine using the MindSphere app Analyse MyDrives.

“This enables the visualisation and analysis of status information, providing users with valuable data which can be used as the basis for optimising processes and maintenance strategies,” Peel concluded.
