Comprised of the drive, motor and gear box, a new distributed drive system is available as a comprehensive approach for motor-mounted and wall-mounted horizontal motion control conveyor applications.
With its Sinamics G115D is suitable for applications in food and beverage industries, Siemens has introduced a drive system comprised of the motor, drive and gearbox in one unit and is offered in two versions — wall-mounted and motor-mounted.
The drive system is designed with IP protection (up to IP66/UL Type 4X) and is suitable for use in harsh environments, as well as can be easily installed in confined areas, the company says. The drive system can also be operated reliably over a temperature range of -30° to 55°C.
Watch video introduction:
Drive system power ranges from 0.37 to 7.5 kW for wall-mount applications and 0.37 to 4 kW for motor-mounted applications. The drive system is said to be put into operation quickly and easily with comprehensive integration into the Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) portal including Startdrive commissioning software or the Sinamics Smart Access Module (SAM) webserver for Wi-Fi setup and diagnostics.
To be prepared for digital transformation and to enable cloud-based analysis, Sinamics G115D is integrated into the entire MindConnect portfolio and is compatible with MindSphere applications such as Analyze MyDrives.
Thanks to Profisafe, the company says, the Sinamics G115D has Safety Integrated in the form of STO (Safe Torque Off) SIL2, which standardizes and facilitates the certification process. For flexibility in terms of installation, service and maintenance, the solution is equipped with a plug-in connector and flexible connection possibilities. The device is particularly suitable for interaction with Simatic controllers such as the Simatic S7-1200 or Simatic ET200 for motion control.
