Local operation, monitoring, commissioning, diagnostics

Basic operator panel for direct connection to the converter 

The menu-based operation of the BOP Basic Operator Panel facilitates local commissioning of the SINAMICS V20 converters.

  • Connection between converter and BOP Basic Operator Panel
  • RJ45 interface is compatible with standard network cable

Increase the number of inputs and outputs on the SINAMICS V20, 400 V converter with the I/O expansion module.

The module can simply be installed on the converter and provides two additional digital inputs and two relay outputs for it. The following inputs and outputs are thus available:

  • 2 analog inputs
  • 4 digital outputs
  • 1 analog output

The module has connections on the front and back and can be used in conjunction with other accessories for SINAMICS V20, such as the V20 Smart Access Module, the BOP, and the BOP interface.

This option extends the functionality of SINAMICS V20 converters. It can, for example, be used to control several pumps, with one V20 being able to control a maximum of four pumps.

Parameter settings can be stored and loaded again using an SD card or MMC card via the battery-operated parameter loader – even without power being supplied to the converter. This also enables the very latest firmware to be loaded.

  • Shortens the deceleration ramp time
  • Suitable for 230 V 1 AC and 400 V 3 AC
  • Adjustable duty cycle from 5% to 100%
  • The frame sizes FSD and FSE already have an integrated braking unit
