Extend the lifetime of your machines and plants
Integrated Drives Systems are at the heart of your machines and plants. They need to run both safely and reliably – often for decades and under harsh conditions. As a result they are frequently subject to extreme wear and tear, and these factors increase the risk of unscheduled downtime over the course of time. Retrofit for Integrated Drive Systems can avert these risks, and provide significant support for maintaining reliable plant operation over the long term.
As with new systems, retrofit solutions for Integrated Drive Systems take the entire drive train into account. This makes it possible to identify and utilize additional efficiency and energy-saving potential – for example, by using energy-efficient components and integrating them intelligently into the automation environment with the TIA Portal, or by implementing Remote Services and continuous Condition Monitoring.
Retrofits are a key factor in long-term investment security, and they are also a valuable investment in their own right. Thanks to the potential savings of energy, your investment in a retrofit usually pays off in just a few months, and quickly lowers operating costs over the long term by making additional potentials available.
Siemens offers an extensive retrofit program for Siemens products as well as other brands, from duplications, upgrading, and replacing individual components to implementing complex retrofit projects.
