Compact inverter with Profinet

19 September 2012

The compact Sinamics G120C inverter from Siemens is now also available with Profinet communication. The drive is suitable for the operation of pumps, compressors, fans and mixers and extruders; and also for conveyors and simple handling machines.

Siemens Drive Technologies Division is adding Profinet to its compact Sinamics G120C inverter, adding to the existing Profibus, USS/Modbus RTU and CAN options already available to provide more enhanced efficiency and performance, enabling faster exchange of data for high-performance motion control applications. In addition, standard Ethernet communication and Profinet communication can be used in parallel.

Compared to conventional systems available on the market, the converter is said to require up to 30% less installation space and provides up to 40% higher power density. Plug-in terminals make for fast installation, while a memory card slot enables fast series commissioning.

Each G120C comes with ‘Safety Integrated’ from Siemens as standard to ensure safe drive shutdown. A dual safety input is factory-fitted to accomplish Safe Torque Off (STO function) without the need for connecting external devices.
