SIEMENS is introducing a new high-performance drive to the North American market. Sinamics G220 is a multi-purpose adjustable speed drive with built-in “clean power” technology, which reduces harmonics by up to 97% without the need for an AC line reactor or DC choke. Sinamics G220 is more efficient in terms of space utilization and operation – and reportedly it makes the system engineering and its integration into a production or processing machine much easier.
Sinamics G220 is also the first drive to join the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio for digital transformation. They are part of the TIA Portal and feature a digital twin in the Startdrive drives commissioning tool, allowing the behavior of the drive to be tested and optimized before the hardware is available.
Sinamics G220 has an integrated web-server for commissioning, which eliminates the need to install software or an app on a PC or mobile device. This saves time and makes drive set-up very intuitive and extremely user-friendly.
Also, the new drives are equipped with an IIoT module, meaning that Sinamics G220 can easily be integrated into cloud and edge applications, which increases the transparency of the applications and makes remote monitoring and accessibility of the drive system possible. Machine availability can even be optimized and system uptimes can be further improved.
In regard to cybersecurity, Sinamics G220 comes standard with state-of-the-art security integrated, providing highly secure communication, integrity and authenticity checks to protect against tampered firmware. Additionally, the drives offer User Management and Access Control (UMAC) within TIA Portal.
Sinamics G220 drives come with a range of modular and flexible hardware options as well as software and Safety Integrated functions, which can be easily adapted to user-specific application requirements. For example, the Sinamics G220 is also available in UL Type 12 (IP55) wall-mount design and a special conformal coating option is also available for the operation of a drive in the harsh environments where the presence of corrosive gases such as hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide, or ammonia is unavoidable. Thanks to the quality of its components and robust hardware design according to UL 61800-5-1, the drive is built to ensure a long service life.
