General description

Depending on the particular application, often, SIMOREG® DC drives are the most favorably-priced drive solution. They offer many benefits when it comes to reliability, operator friendliness and performance. If you are looking for the optimum cost-effective DC drive solution, then you can depend on SIMOREG DC-MASTER drive converters with the highest output and integrated intelligence. When it comes down to it, they have the unique features of Siemens products: Totally Integrated Automation. This means that you benefit from the fact that they are completely integrated into the Siemens system environment: when engineering/configuring and programming, with the common database and the integrated communications - and you can save money in more than just one way!


The Siemens SIMOREG product family distinguishes itself by the simple and unified operator control philosophy. Programming know-how is not required, all of the settings are made completely electronically. If you are interested in user-friendly commissioning a menu-prompted start-up via a PC is available.
Furthermore, SIMOREG DC-MASTER, with  BICO-technology, has an increased software functionality which significantly reduces the engineering time and costs.

Technical data overview

The SIMOREG DC-MASTER family is available in all versions - for an output range from 6.3 kW to 2500 kW, for armature and field supply, for single and four-quadrant drives.


  • It can be fully integrated into any automation environment

  • It can be expanded in a modular fashion - from the standard application up to high-performance solutions

  • Extension by parallel connection up to 18000 A

  • Rated supply voltages from 400 V to 950 V

  • Short and fast commissioning as all of the settings are fully electronically parameterized

  • Unified operator control philosophy

Customer benefits

  • Master and bus systems relieved, and in many cases a separate PLC is not required; the open and closed-loop control are realized directly in the drive.

  • The optional user-friendly OP1S operator panel guarantees fast and straight forward operator control. For example, when up-reading and downloading parameter sets online and offline. The four-line plain text display with 16 characters is clear and functional. The OP1S can be universally used for all SIMOREG DC-MASTER.

  • Today, you have access to a new interface to configure parallel circuits for redundant drive systems. The complete system will still function even if one or several drives fail.

  • All SIMOREG DC-MASTER units are already pre-configured in the factory. The equipment-specific parameters no longer have to be set, and the adaptation to the particular application (e.g. the load resistor for optimum current actual values or the terminating resistor for perfect communications) are also realized fully electronically using parameters. This means that they can be immediately used when service is required. SIMOREG DC-MASTER - the more cost-effective solution even before it goes into operation.

  • You can rejuvenate older DC solutions using the SIMOREG CM unit. The Control Module permits a favorably-priced and efficient retrofit solution - no matter whether retrofitting or upgrading.

  • For us, it goes without saying that our products are internationally certified. SIMOREG products are fully compliant with the most important standards and regulations as standard - from the EN European Standard up to IEC/VDE. CE marking, UL, cUL and CSA certification make the SIMOREG DC-MASTER a real global player.
