Driven to the best functions

drive selection by functions

Select Siemens drives by functions in firmware & software

Here is a fact: no drive system offers a greater number and variety of functionality than the SINAMICS family. Below you will find which products do what at which level. If you are wondering whether a drive will do something you need, but don't see that function listed for that drive, contact us – it might very well be possible. or we might have missed something.

Functions

Select drives by functions in firmware / software

Please note that these are lists of functions built-in as standard to the drive. Many functions might be added as an option or even as a software "patch." Contact Siemens if you have any questions.
