Since electric motor systems draw more than 65% of industrial power consumption...
Siemens energy efficient drives can optimize motor control systems in
Reduce energy consumption by as much as 70%
Create a return on investment (ROI) in as few as 6 months
Improve product quality, reduce production costs and lower CO2 emissions
SINAMICS variable frequency drives allow you to exploit energy-saving potential and optimize energy consumptionDepending on the application in question, energy consumption can be controlled by motor speed adjustment to suit the individual process and achieve the greatest possible energy savings. The energy consumption of drives for turbo machines can be cut by as much as 60%. Regenerative feedback is also an option for many applications. The SINAMICS portfolio is the most comprehensive and standardized range on the market and the first choice for anyone seeking an energy-efficient drive.

System-wide energy management
PROFIenergy is a profile of the PROFINET communications protocol that allows the power consumption of automation equipment in manufacturing (such as robot assembly cells, laser cutters and sub-systems such as paint lines) to be managed over a PROFINET network. It controls energy usage during planned and unplanned breaks in production. No external hard-wired systems are required.
To be able to make the right decisions at the right time, you have to keep a constant eye on energy consumption throughout your entire company. With SIMATIC Energy Management, Siemens offers you a comprehensive, scaleable ISO 50001-certified portfolio of products and solutions – ranging from field-level energy data recording to company-wide energy analysis at the management level.
SinaSave drives / motors energy-saving application
You've heard that you can save up to 70% of energy costs by simply using energy-efficient drives and motors, allowingd excess costs for highly efficient
drive solutions to be covered quickly; lowering electricity costs to directly increase revenues. Wouldn't it be cool if there was a way to compare solutions for your exact application that shows how this could be achieved? How about a way to save the best system and order it?
Well cool is here: with SinaSave, the free Siemens application that gives you the power to reduce power.
SinaSave is designed for selecting a motor for line-fed operation or run by a variable-speed drive. In the case of line-fed operation, cost savings can be calculated as well as the amortization time for IE2 or NEMA Premium® energy-saving motors. In the case of drive-fed operation, all the necessary plant-specific parameters as well as the values required for the process are taken into consideration. SinaSave uses this information to determine the matching drive system, the price of the appropriate products and the energy requirement of the variable-speed drive system in comparison to alternative concepts.
The SinaSave software determines the key data required for making investment decisions. On this basis, decisions regarding new acquisitions for drive systems can be made quickly and reliably.
Comparative analysis: Use of an IE2 motor instead of an IE1 motor in line-fed operation
The green area illustrates the possible total cost saving after switching to an IE2 motor. The amortization point indicates the time at which the excess costs for investing in the replacement motor are financed by additional energy savings – about 0.9 years.
Comparative analysis: Use of a variable speed drive instead of throttle control
The green area shows the energy-saving potential of drive-fed operation in comparison to throttle control. In this application example, SinaSave has calculated an amortization time of 6 months energy savings and a return on investment of 223%.
