Siemens (Washington, D.C.) is introducing the new Sinamics G120X drive, a simple, seamless and easy-to-use drive, designed for use in pump, fan and compressor applications in industries such as water/wastewater, HVAC/R, irrigation/agriculture and in industrial environments. Sinamics G120X has a power range of 1–700 hp (0.75–630 kW) and can operate in a temperature range from -4 to +140° F (-20 to +60° C) with any standard motor, including synchronous reluctance motors (SRM). It has an integral DC choke which improves harmonics and EMC performance. Sinamics G120X meets all the latest and upcoming UL, NEMA and EN/IEC standards for 2019 and beyond and offers up to 100 kA short-circuit current rating (SCCR) ensuring enhanced product safety and energy efficiency. Additional benefits include:
- Easy integration into existing applications and is configured for cost-optimization and resource-saving operation, which ultimately helps reduce total cost of ownership.
- A compact design, saving space in the control cabinet. It can also be easily integrated in to MCC solutions (including plug-in buckets). Even without an additional output reactor, Sinamics G120X drives enable motor cable lengths of up to 492 ft. (150 m) with category C2 or C3 filter and up to 1476 ft. (450 m) without filter and have hardware-based SIL3-certified safety functions built-in.
- A Class 3C3 coating which is suitable for harsh environments where the presence of corrosive gases such as Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) is present. A high C2 or C1 EMC category ensures the drive can be reliably used in any kind of industrial and public networks.
Sinamics G120X is compliant with all relevant EU and upcoming NEMA energy-saving standards and offers an operating efficiency level of over 98% (efficiency class IE2). Its comprehensive range of integrated application-specific functions for pumps and fans ensures improved energy efficiency through amount of actual energy needed in line with the actual load which ensures the best possible performance and minimal energy losses.
