Cabinet Module Drives

February 21, 2014

Siemens Sinamics S120 Cabinet Module DrivesSiemens has released a new version of its popular Sinamics S120 Cabinet Module (CM) drive packages that is compliant with North American standards and offered with optional UL/cUL listing. This unique product enables easy configuration of complex common DC bus lineups for multi-motor coordinated drive systems, as well as high horsepower (hp) stand-alone drives for a wide variety of industrial applications. Key to the global growth of the Sinamics S120 CM range is its modularity and flexibility. Pre-designed, fully type-tested modules, including line side components, line infeeds (bus supplies) and motor inverters, all with a broad range of standard options, are selected and configured by the customer. Compared to the traditional approach of custom-engineered systems, this approach offers significant reduction in engineering and manufacturing lead times, which translates into reduced project costs and a compressed delivery schedule, while minimizing technical and commercial risk on even the most complex drive systems.
