October 31, 2018 - Sidrive IQ from Siemens provides a digital platform enabling the evaluation and utilization of data gathered from drive systems. On the basis of networked drive systems from Siemens, this cloud-based application is also available for motors and converters in the medium and high-voltage range.
Connectivity modules such as Simotics Connect 600 and Sinamics Connect 500 enable high-voltage motors and medium- voltage converters to be linked up to Sidrive IQ. With the its Remote Services and Condition Monitoring Services offered as part of the Sidrive IQ Services portfolio, Siemens is making available corrective measures for fixing faults, preventive maintenance offers and proactive services for optimized performance. The drive systems are used in pumps, fans and compressors across different sectors of industry such as oil and gas, mining, food and beverage, water and wastewater, metals and cement.
The interaction between operating data and digital twins provides plant and machine operators with an array of available data via Sidrive IQ – from measured values, status and operating KPIs, service messages, location positioning and technical product data to spare part information.
The upgraded version now also allows the standardized connection of high-voltage motors such as Simotics HV C and medium-voltage converters such as Sinamics GM150 or Sinamics Perfect Harmony GH180 to Sidrive IQ. This requires the use of the Sinamics Connect 500 or Simotics Connect 600 connectivity modules.
