SIMOTICS HV HP (synchronous)

Accelerated projects, less effort and maximized plant availability


SIMOTICS HV HP is a platform motor which is characterized by a unique grade of modularity and adaptability to customer specific requirements.

The standardized platform concept of SIMOTICS HV HP combines the advantages of a serial production like short lead times, fast offer and order performance, improved quality and documentation and high delivery reliability with the advantages of tailor-made solution which can be flexibly and efficiently adjusted to your requirements.

With the SIMOTICS HV HP for the first time taylor-made motors of the topmost power range are available in the Siemens configuration tools: for an easy selection and configuration, accelerated offer performance and reduced efforts.

With a multitude of possible options and its wide speed range SIMOTICS HV HP can cover many complex applications in various industries like oil and gas industry, chemicals, metals and marine for applications like compressors, pumps, extruders, refiner, generators and fans & blowers.

SIMOTICS HV HP is able to realize efficiency rates of close to 99 % for the synchronous version by optimized motor design.

The motors are optimized for DOL operation and also for operation with SINAMICS MV converters, which leads to reliable and cost effective drive systems over the whole life cycle.
