April 17, 2018 - Siemens has extended its Sinamics G120 converter series portfolio to include an option for wireless commissioning, diagnostics and servicing. The Sinamics G120 Smart Access Module enables the wireless connection of mobile devices such as tablets, smartphones or laptops over WiFi to the Sinamics G120, Sinamics G120C and Sinamics G120P converter series. The module is set up in a few steps using a conventional web browser and any standard operating system. The web server functionality eliminates the need to download any additional software.
The G120 Smart Access Module is available for Sinamics G120C, Sinamics G120 with Control Units CU230P-2 and CU240-E2, as well as for Sinamics G120P with CU230P-2. Since the use of the module is not linked to a specific web browser, customers are free to choose any preferred browser and use any optional terminal such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop for converter commissioning, parameterization and maintenance. The motor can also be tested in the JOG mode. Error messages or warning signals are detected over the wireless link, which can also be used to save or reset settings.
It is also possible to swap Sinamics G120 Smart Access Modules between different converters of the specified series, allowing them to be commissioned using a single mobile terminal. In this case, the module acts as a transportable storage facility with web-based operator unit and wireless client link.
