October 29, 2015 - Siemens added the FSAA housing for its Sinamics G120C converters. These converters require up to 32 percent less space in the control cabinet while retaining their compatibility with the currently available sizes and bus systems.
The Sinamics G120C frequency converter stands for high performance density in a compact design, as well as for extreme application flexibility. Siemens equipped the converter with an even more compact housing, the FSAA, but with identical functionality and performance. Compared to the previous size, the FSA, the new FSAA housing excels with up to 32 percent space savings in the control cabinet. The Safe Torque Off safety function has been integrated as standard, meaning that other external components can be dispensed with. The exterior of the new FSAA housing size remains compatible with the previous models. As the drilling template coincides with the Sinamics FSA and Micromaster MM4, there is no need for any reconfiguration when exchanging products.
The housing size also supports all conventional bus systems such as Profinet, Profibus or USS/ Modbus RTU, and the FSAA is available in an output range from 0.55 to 2.2 kilowatts. Sinamics G120C converters are true multi-talents, and form an integral part of Totally Integrated Automation and Integrated Drive Systems. The converter family is ideally suited for the machine building industry and for sales through distribution channels, and also covers the requirements of wide-ranging applications such as conveyor belts, mixers, pumps or compressors.
