SINAMICS firmware functions -The right function for every application
Today, the main functionality of our SINAMICS drives is implemented in software. This "embedded" software is also known as firmware, and is functionally firmly assigned to a specific hardware (hence the name firmware).
In the case of SINAMICS drives, the firmware is subdivided into the operating system (OS) with drivers for the hardware, and the converter functions, which are also referred to as the runtime (RT) functions.

Overcurrent Protection (OCP), short-circuit current rating (SCCR) & a new UL Standard for VFDs, UL 61800-5-1: What you Need to Know
Join us for this webinar where we explain different types of overcurrent protective devices (OCPD), their behavior in circuit protection, and differences among them. This presentation highlights the requirements of motor branch circuit protection according to different standards as well as according to NEC/NFPA 70 for industrial control panels & variable frequency drives. The presentation also provides practical understanding of short-circuit current rating (SCCR) as well as OCPD sizing to obtain a desired SCCR for overall equipment or industrial control panel in compliance with UL/NEC/IEC.
As a bonus, a new UL standard, UL 61800-5-1 for VFDs will be discussed along with its impact to the industry & benefits to the users/OEMs/Panel builders. In addition, the strong benefits of using SINAMICS drives will be demonstrated from the product safety point of view which will help users/equipment owners reduce total cost of ownership through potential savings due to improved product safety and enhanced OSHA compliance.
