SINAMICS enclosed drive series

Siemens Sinamics G120XE drive

New SINAMICS drive from Siemens for industrial pump, fan and compressor use in harsh environments and heavy-duty positioning.

Siemens has announced immediate availability of a new enclosed drive system, the SINAMICS G120XE, designed specifically for the demands of industrial pump, fan and compressor applications in a wide variety of markets. Built around the popular SINAMICS G120X infrastructure drive, this new enclosed system is ideal for fast design and commissioning in industries such as oil-and-gas/petrochemical, water/wastewater, power plants, industrial climate control, refrigeration and chillers in harsh environments.

A NEMA 1 enclosure is standard, with a NEMA 12 version optional, featuring appropriate ventilation and air filters. The base enclosure is suitable for wall-mounting to 75 hp applications, while the free-standing floor module accommodates uses to 200 hp.

Standard electrical characteristics of the drive system also include a UL508A listing, SCCR rating to 65kA, circuit breaker disconnect with flange-mounted operator handle and mechanical door interlock, plus control power transformer for internal power control and power module with PWM IGBT inverter. Overload ratings allow operation in either light or high overload duty conditions.

The enclosure ventilation fans on the SINAMICS G120XE are controlled via a relay and run only as needed, a significant energy saver and noise reduction feature. Optional features on the enclosure include output filters and reduced voltage soft start (RVSS) bypass.

In addition to the door-mounted IOP-2 keypad / display, the drive can also be commissioned, setup or modified using any Wi-Fi-enabled laptop, tablet or smartphone by installing the Smart Access Module.
