Setting the pace for simple to mid-level motion
SINAMICS standard performance drives
Pumps, fans, compressors, conveyor belts, mixers, mills or extruders: no matter what application, SINAMICS standard performance drives are perfectly adapted to basic to mid-level control dynamics requirements. Based on the same platform as all other members of this innovative drives family, you will benefit from a standardized and user-friendly operating concept without requiring additional engineering tools.
Learn about a big advantage that comes with SINAMICS
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.
UL 61800-5-1: A new UL standard for drives and what you need to knowThe withdrawal of UL508C has impacted the drives manufacturing industry, as well as drives users. This short four-part video series provides an expert's perspective on what you need to know if you are an end user of a drive, a panel builder, MCC manufacturer, or OEM.
By the end of the session, you will be able to:
- Understand the differences between the drives certified according to the obsolete and withdrawn UL 508C and a new UL 61800-5-1, as well as benefits of using the latter
- Learn about the impact to the industry as a result of the UL 508C withdrawal and what you need to know if you are a drive user or an equipment builder
- Discover how you can determine the compliance of a drive with UL 61800-5-1
