A new level of efficiency for conveyor applications

Key visual SINAMCS G115D

SINAMICS G115D innovative distributed drive system for horizontal motion

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


What you need to know about SINAMICS G115D

sinamics g115d digitalization

Meeting requirements of digitalization

SINAMICS G115D is cloud-connected


In every state-of-the-art intralogistics solution, integration into higher level automation systems is essential for achieving 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.

Typical applications

Wide range of dedicated functions – all in a small space

SINAMICS G115D is more than just another distributed drive. lt is an optimally matched system solution comprised of a high-efficiency geared motor and an innovative, low profile variable frequency drive. The system has been optimized exclusively for energy and cost efficient horizontal motion applications benefitting from a small footprint, 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.
