Siemens introduces Sinamics G110D distributed drive
The Sinamics G110D combines improved functionality, increased energy efficiency, a smaller footprint, lower total cost-of-ownership and enhanced usability in a single drive. Applications for this new drive range from material handling or packaging conveyors and airport baggage carousels — to pumps, fans, compressors and other industrial equipment.
Offered as an economically-priced drive with improved features, the Sinamics G110D includes integrated plug-and-play power and control for easier installation and an optional Intelligent Operator Panel (IOP) for simple text application setup in a reduced footprint. The IOP further assists the machine operator with a greater level of control, as well as alarm status alerts and resolution advice, so troubleshooting time is greatly reduced.
The Sinamics G110D includes an optional power disconnect switch and the IP65 metal housing enclosure has a low profile for easier mounting near the motor, with no drive cabinet required, for further space savings.
The Sinamics G110D is suitable for either direct communication with a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) or control via I/O inputs. AS-Interface bus configuration and optional maintenance and manual-auto switch are incorporated into the drive, making it easy to integrate with other hardware in an overall control schematic. Integrated brake control and quick stop functions provide a higher degree of reliability in heavy-load operations.
The Sinamics G110D complements the recently introduced Sinamics G120D drive, which offers many of the same features plus safety integrated design (Safe Limit Speed, Safe
Stop 1 and Safe Torque Off) and power regeneration capability back to the supply.
