SIMOTICS: Motors for Cranes

SIMOTICS: Motors for Cranes

Maximum power even in turbulent environments 

Crane motors are often exposed to extreme weather conditions – as well as being subject to high operational requirements. They must withstand high humidity, salty air and high wind speeds while ensuring a high overload capacity and a wide speed control range. Outstanding performance, quality, efficiency and compactness for all crane functions. A modular concept with application-specific, rugged components for flexible use as hoisting, trolley, slewing, swiveling and gantry drives around the globe.

Motors for Cranes

SIMOTICS Motor series used in crane applications

Innovative drive technology for all industries, applications and power classes

With SIMOTICS, Siemens has the most comprehensive portfolio of electric motors worldwide. From energy-efficient, low-voltage motors through servomotors with high dynamic performance up to well-proven DC motors and powerful high-voltage motors. Innovative drive technology for all industries, applications and power classes. 

Highest degree of reliability and ruggedness

Outdoor and indoor motors: overview of the product range

SIMOTICS low-voltage motors are the right choice for solving drive tasks efficiently and reliably. They are available in diverse series and versions, which means that the appropriate motor can always be found for any application.

Maximum power, even when things get stormy

SIMOTICS DP crane motors are especially suitable to extreme weather conditions, standing up to high humidity levels, saltladen air, and high wind speeds. They are characterized by high overload capability and a large speed setting range, for example, to operate hoist mechanisms efficiently in converter operation. SIMOTICS DP crane motors are reliably protected against corrosion with especially elaborate paint systems and sealing. By using active parts to achieve a high efficiency, energy is also saved in converter operation. 

 

Those motors were specifically developed for following crane applications:

• Hoist, trolley and gantry.

Compact, robust and powerful: motors beyond standards

Reliable and powerful performance, even under toughest environmental conditions: This is where our rugged Severe Duty Motors excel. With their impressive performance and the additional versatility in their range of applications, this new motor series offers entry into a future-proof drive technology. In addition to the future topics of digitalization and energy efficiency, this motor generation was developed with the focus on design optimization, which has resulted in a very compact motor design with a high-power density. 

 

Those motors were specifically developed for following crane applications:

• Boom and Hoist drive 

Energy-efficient, high performance and great quality

Indoor motors for harbor cranes

Innovative drive technology for all industries, applications and power classes. Outstanding performance, quality, efficiency, and compactness.

SIMOTICS M Main Motors

An asynchronous induction motor designed for use on a converter is significantly more compact and sturdier with a higher standard of concentricity than a conventional three-phase induction motor. It has incremental encoders for speed-controlled operation and is available with absolute value transmitters for positioning applications.

 

Those motors were specifically developed for following crane applications:

• Trolley and Hoist drive
