SINAMICS G130: high-powered AC components for enclosed drives and motor control centers

The SINAMICS G130 AC drive offers a very compact power density that is easily integrates into enclosures by specialist drive panel builders, system integrators, and OEMs. The basic SINAMICS G130 drive system consists of a power module and controller, which can be mounted together or separately. The compact and quiet AC/AC G130 power module with state-of-the-art IGBT power semiconductors and an innovative air cooling concept provides low-loss operation for the highest energy efficiency, and is ideal for all applications that do not require regeneration back into the power supply system. 


What you need to know about SINAMICS G130

SINAMICS G130 power modules are offered as a protected chassis (IP20) for ratings up to 400 HP (298 KW) at 490A or for larger ratings above 400 HP in an open chassis (IP00) design.  The G130 is equipped with analog and digital inputs and outputs for convenient connection of control signals.  Fieldbus and network interfaces are also available.  Optional components from the extensive SINAMICS drives family include an advanced operator panel, terminal module for digital and analog inputs and outputs, speed feedback encoder interface module, input line or output reactor, fuses, dv/dt, or sine wave filters, among many others.

Typical applications


SINAMICS G130 drive components are ideal for applications that involve moving, conveying, pumping or compressing solids, liquids or gases. In particular, this includes variable torque applications such as pumps, fans, blowers, and compressors, as well as constant torque applications such as mixers, extruders and mills. The control can be operated in sensorless vector or v/hz modes. Closed-loop vector control can be implemented as well with the addition of the optional encoder interface board. The optional user-friendly AOP30 operator panel with graphical LCD and plain-text display provides easy commissioning and parameterization using interactive menus and alarm and fault logs.
