A universal medium voltage drive solution for single motor applications with variable and constant torque characteristics

sinamics gm150

SINAMICS GM150 is a universal and simple drive converter for single-motor applications with variable and constant torque characteristics in a compact and efficient design, but without regenerative feedback. The SINAMICS GM150 (IGBT / IGCT) variable speed drive offers simplicity due to the use of standardized engineering tools like SIZER WEB ENGINEERING for system integration and STARTER for fast and user-friendly commissioning. SINAMICS GM150 distinguishes itself as competitive, rugged and service friendly.

Your Benefits

  • Easy plant integration due to the compact design and highly flexible configuration

  • Simple operator control with the user-friendly operator panel

  • Smooth and reliable operation due to the integrated maintenance functions: the converter signals automatically and well in advance when maintenance is required and/or components need to be exchanged

  • High ruggedness and reliability thanks to the use of HV-IGBT / IGCT technology and fuseless design, combined with intelligent response to external disturbances

  • Hassle-free integration into higher-level automation systems due to PROFIBUS interface supplied as standard and analog and digital interfaces

  • High degree of service-friendliness due to the innovative power section design, e.g. plug-in powercards and excellent accessibility of all components only applicable to the HV-IGBT technology

  • Oil and gas, water / waste water, power generation, mining, cement, marine, metals - a SINAMICS GM150 drive performs unaffected by environmental effects such as dust, corrosion and vibration. The control is insensitive to voltage fluctuations and electromagnetic disturbances, further increasing the overall reliability.

  • Front access allows wall-mounting of drive cabinets

  • Simple and safe transport thanks to the integrated base frame

  • Either air- or water cooled

  • Compact design makes it easier to integrate into existing plants

  • Space-saving cabinet design reduces the costs of the electrical room

  • Transformer location can be freely selected: oil-filled transformer for outdoor installation or dry-type for indoor installation

  • Top or bottom cable entry

  • All connections from the front

  • Without filter as standard for new systems equipped with Siemens converter motors

  • The best prerequisites for operation with motors that are designed for direct online operation, using a real sinus-wave filter

  • Line-friendly using a 12-pulse diode rectifier - or alternatively a 24-pulse diode rectifier
