SIMOTICS HV M (LV version)

Shorter project execution times – higher degree of reliability

General description

Motors employing a modular cooling concept for applications in sectors such as oil & gas, petrochemical, chemical, steel, shipbuilding, cement, fiber, water & wastewater and power generation.

The SIMOTICS HV M in low voltage version are available in shaft heights 450, 500, 560 mm with a gray cast iron enclosure (welded steel enclosure on request), in degree of protection IP55 or IP23 - air or water cooled.

The lifecycle costs are extremely important and these make the SIMOTICS HV M motor so attractive. Especially for motors driven by variable speed drives the optimization for SINAMICS low voltage converters and for the complete drive train offers lower costs during the whole lifecycle due to best performance values.

The SIMOTICS HV M motors save energy, require little maintenance and operate reliably over their long motor lifetime.

This is complemented by a high degree of mechanical stiffness, a weight-optimized and noise-dampening design as well as short delivery time.
