sinamics distributed lv drives

SINAMICS low voltage distributed drives

Ideally suited for conveyor systems in the industrial environment, SINAMICS distributed drives can significantly save wiring and installation costs while freeing room in control cabinets. At the same time they carry with them the same integrated and consistent technology for which their built-in siblings are known.. This applies in particular to the automotive sector, distribution logistics and airports, but is a perfect solution any time long distances and space considerations apply.

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.
