November 25, 2014 - Siemens releases Simotics DP Steel Plant Motors that expand the range of roller table motors, and are specially designed for applications in the steel industry where they meet the high demands in terms of vibrations and shocks according to Class 3M4. Versions of these motors are optimized for use with converters of the Sinamics S120 series and, as integrated drive systems, contribute to reliable and efficient operation. In network operation, the IE3 efficiency class ensures particularly high energy savings. The Simotics DP Steel Plant Motors offer optimized solutions for steel production processes. In particular, these include the transport processes, for example transport to the reheating furnace and cooling bed, on beam rolling mills or run-out tables. The motors feature a mechanical design that has been continuously tested in accordance with to DIN EN60721-3-3 and exhibit a correspondingly high resistance to vibration and shocks, compliant with Class 3M4. They are available in 4- and 6-pole designs with shaft heights from 112 to 280 mm and in the torque range from 20 to 578 Nm. The Steel Plant range comprises not only mains powered motors, but also versions optimized for converter operation with special insulation systems. When used together with the Sinamics S120 drive system, these motors form an integrated drive system that contributes to particularly dynamic and reliable production processes. Furthermore, operation with the Sinamics S120 converter enables group drives to be implemented with a high level of synchronization.
