November 2, 2018 - The Simotics HV C air-cooled range from Siemens completes the Simotics HV C platform for high-voltage motors up to 3.2 megawatts (MW). The cooling concept, involving a combination of fin and tube cooling, delivers temperature distribution in the motor. The motors feature an enclosed internal circulation (IC 411) and are suitable for use in areas where there is no danger of explosions (safe areas) and areas where explosions are not likely to occur (explosion protection zone 2) as well as being available in ignition-proof types Ex ec and Ex tc. The motors can be connected to the Sidrive IQ digital platform using the Simotics Connect 600 connector box: This provides access to cloud-based analysis of the condition data which allows the drive system to be optimized. The motors are used in pumps, fans, compressors, extruders, grinders, stirrers, mixers, conveyors and rollers in industries as diverse as energy, chemical, cement, paper and pulp, and mining.
The performance density is based on the new cooling concept: Tube cooling elements have been integrated by Siemens into the motor’s rib-cooled housing. The motor design allows it to be matched to customer interfaces on a project-by-project basis, for example, the connection leads can be located in many different positions. Extended maintenance intervals and service times increase the availability of the drive system. Simotics HV C air-cooled motors from Siemens extend the range beyond the existing flameproof and water-jacket-cooled designs.
Simotics HV C motors are an integral component of Sidrive IQ, a digital platform for optimizing drive systems. The Simotics HV C motors have an optional connectivity module for integration into the digital, cloud-based solution. This uses temperature and vibration sensors to capture and process data such as bearing temperatures, winding temperatures, and housing vibrations and transmits this information for analysis in the cloud. The connectivity module Simotics Connect 600 used on the Simotics HV C is specifically adapted to the requirements of Sidrive IQ. Sidrive IQ uses the data received to monitor, analyze and optimize the Simotics HV C motor drive:
