Siemens introduces Sinamics V20 frequency converters

April 14, 2016- Siemens has launched FS AA and FS AB frame size Sinamics V20 converters, the company's smallest. With a width of just 68 millimeters and a height of 142 millimeters, the corporation has reduced the installation dimensions of the Sinamics V20 for low powered motors. The converters with an FS AA frame size have an overall depth of 108 millimeters and powers of 0.12, 0.25 and 0.37 W, and those with an FS AB frame size have an overall depth of 128 millimeters and powers of 0.55 and 0.75 kW for single-phase 230 V mains operation. The converters are optionally available with an integrated C1 EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) filter, which allows them to be used in residential and commercial environments in compliance with DIN EN 61800-3. The Sinamics V20 converters are suitable for industrial applications, such as pumps, fans, compressors and conveyor systems.

"Keep Running" mode allows continuous operation, even with a fluctuating supply voltage. An improved cooling concept and coated printed-circuit boards provide the electrical and mechanical ruggedness needed for use in harsh ambient conditions. The frequency converters can be connected to a higher-level controller via the integrated Modbus RTU/ USS interface.

The two new frame sizes now make the Sinamics V20 available in a total of seven different frame sizes, each optimized for a power within the range from 0.12 to 30 kW, and for operation in 230 V single-phase and 400 V three-phase supply systems.
