Frequency converters and variable frequency drives for every drive application
SINAMICS frequency converter
Siemens is the leading manufacturer of electric drive technology. With SINAMICS frequency converter technology, you can address each and every drive application – whether low voltage, medium voltage or DC. You can operate synchronous motors as well as induction motors according to the characteristics of the machine you are driving. Our variable frequency drives, electric motors and control systems for the variable-speed control of machines are perfectly coordinated with one another and can be very simply integrated into your existing system and automation landscape. Our frequency converters with integrated safety technology can be centrally installed and commissioned in control cabinets, mounted on walls or decentrally in distributed topologies. We have the optimum energy-saving variable frequency drives for each and every application. Whether for pumping, ventilating, moving, positioning, processing or machining. SINAMICS – simply my drive!
Advantages of SINAMICS frequency converters and variable frequency drivesEfficient. Versatile. Fit for the future.
A whole raft of decisive advantages is obtained when operating any motor with a SINAMICS frequency converter:
- Energy saving – the motor only supplies the power that the process requires at any point in time.
- Changes to process parameters can be responded to significantly faster than with mechanical actuators.
- After a short line supply failure, a motor controlled from a frequency converter can continue to operate – even without a torque surge.
Result: process availability and product quality increase significantly Not only this, the complete mechanical system is protected against overload.
