SINAMICS G115D – the new distributed drive system

Key visual SINAMCS G115D

Innovative system solutions for horizontal motion applications

The new SINAMICS G115D is a powerful device that has been specifically designed to address current and future challenges involving horizontal conveyor applications. Typical applications include intralogistics and airports. These markets face challenges such as the volume of demands and parcel shipments, and in environments where space is at a premium. This means that a higher volume must be handled in a shorter time. SINAMICS G115D is the optimum device when addressing all of these requirements as it operates reliably under harsh conditions and takes up little space. It combines a motor, frequency converter and gearbox in one single unit. This all-in-one solution means that it can be easily integrated into existing automation environments.

Introducing SINAMICS G115D

Distributed drive system improvements

SINAMICS G115D represents the innovative distributed drive system packed with completely new features.

Specific functions for a wide range of applications

SINAMICS G115D is more than just another frequency converter. lt is an optimally matched system solution comprising a high-efficiency geared motor and an innovative, low profile frequency converter. The system has been optimized exclusively for energy and cost efficient horizontal motion in applications such as conveyor belts, sorting systems, baggage and freight conveyor systems, warehouse and distribution logistics, mail sorting as well as parcel distribution. It has been specifically designed to address intralogistic and airport applications, but also in the automotive and F&B domains.

SINAMICS G115D is versatile, rugged and distributed.

SINAMICS G115D meets the requirements of digitalization

Our distributed drive system is cloud-connected

In every state-of-the-art intralogistics solution, integration into higher level automation systems is essential to be able to achieve maximum flexibility and efficiency. With SINAMICS G115D you benefit from seamless integration both in the TIA environment (for higher level automation) and in MindSphere applications such as Analyze MyDrives (for single drive optimization).

 

With this underlying system of checks and analyses, horizontal conveyors are even able to utilize web-based platforms to become part of a networked industry, taking full advantage of the loT.

 

The number of products conveyed can be ideally monitored using the MindSphere app Analyze MyDrives. lt provides a comprehensive overview of the system's performance and material flow, and enables users to ensure high levels of availability. Based on the results, workflows can also be streamlined, failures can be predicted and prevented, and maintenance can be performed when it is convenient – not just when necessary.
