April 13, 2018 - Simotics SD Pro is intended to complete the next generation of low-voltage Simotics SD motors from Siemens. The new variant is suited for mains-fed operation or for use with a converter for voltages up to 690 volts (V). There is generally no need to use special filters at the converter output. The Simotics SD Pro motors fulfill the requirements for compliance with efficiency class IE3, whether they are operated at 50 or 60 hertz (Hz). Used in conjunction with a range of industry-specific and country-specific certificates, they can be used in all the world’s regions and markets, and also in different plant configurations.
The Simotics SD Pro offers multi-voltage capability, for series production by OEMs. The motors can be stably operated with all power supplies in common use around the world, and fulfill the requirements for compliance with the respective efficiency class at all operating points. Typical applications for the low-voltage motors include pumps, compressors, fans, cranes and hoists, conveyors, chippers, coilers, grinders, shears and rolling stands.
The Simotics SD Pro variant is currently available in shaft heights 315 to 450, and in the 2 and 4-pole version covers a rated power output range of 250 to 980 kilowatts (kW). Further 6 to 8-pole versions are also available in various types of construction. The design and reduced cover size make these motors suitable for greenfield and retrofit projects. Due to the terminal concept there will be up to 40 possibilities of terminal box positioning to be adjusted individually to local circumstances.
All the variants of the new Simotics SD next generation motor series – Simotics SD, Simotics SD Add and Simotics SD Pro – are designed to help users optimize their processes across the entire life cycle from the design stage through to servicing. Engineering processes are speeded up by using a virtual copy of the motor, its digital twin, which is continuously updated by Siemens. Using 2D drawings and 3D models, machines and plants can be simulated.
Using the machine-readable data matrix code attached to the motor in conjunction with the Simotics Digital Data App, users are able to access electrical and mechanical data, operating instructions and manuals at any time for the 315 and 355 shaft height motors.
