Siemens has released combination motor/drive packages that are said to allow an OEM or end-user the option to select the optimum solution for a variety of heavy-duty industrial motion control applications from a single source.

Choosing from a pre-determined list of motor/drive combinations, the Siemens motor and drive are packaged on a single pallet, shipped, and invoiced together.

The motor and drive combinations are power-matched for 480 V high-overload operation through a 20 hp range, with I2T protection from thermal damage provided as a standard in both the motor and the drive components.

The Siemens Intelligent Operator Panel (IOP) is included with these packages, allowing easy step-by-step drive start-up.

Application macros are provided in the Sinamics G120C drive to simplify installation and wiring; Simotics SD100 TEFC NEMA Premium efficiency motors are cast-iron with inverter duty ratings in a 4:1 speed range for constant torque and 20:1 speed range for variable torque.
