Extensive additions to Sinamics G120 portfolio for optimum handling

The push-through heat sinks which allow most of the heat loss to dissipate outside the control cabinet are now also available in higher-powered variants up to 132 kW. These new push-through variants of the PM240-2 Power Module are available in the voltage ranges from 200 to 240V and from 380 to 480V. Like the basic Power Module, they come with a braking chopper as well as integrated DC link reactor, and can be individually combined with the most suitable control unit.
The flat IOP-2 Intelligent Operator Panel from the Sinamics G series has also been provided with new functions. It now comes complete with a new wizard enabling simple configuration of the Ethernet-based field bus interface. In addition, to facilitate particularly easy configuration and selection, users are provided with a quick overview of all the interface setting possibilities. Added to this is also a new support function for direct access to data such as general product information and documentation. When using the Industry Online Support App, communication with Customer Support has also been substantially simplified. Access is established using a two-dimensional code generated at the IOP-2, which can be scanned and evaluated using a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet.
The safety technology integrated in the Sinamics G120 converter as standard, such as STO (SIL 3, PL e, Cat.3), makes for simplified handling. The Sinamics G120 fulfills EMC category EN61800-3 to C2 across the entire size range, and forms a central element of TIA (Totally Integrated Automation) and IDS (Integrated Drive Systems). The modular design of the PM240-2 Power Modules in the Sinamics G120 series makes them ideally suited for a wide range of general machine engineering applications up to 250 kW.
The PM240-2 Power Module with push-through technology is available both in the voltage range 3 AC with 200 to 240 V and in the power range 0.75 to 55 kW. Variants are also available in the voltage range 3 AC with 380 to 480 V and the power range 3 kW to 132 kW. The IOP-2 permits rapid commissioning, troubleshooting and intuitive operation of all the converters of the Sinamics G series. The IOP-2 with its extended functionality is compatible with Sinamics converter models G120, G120C, G120P, G110D, G120D, G110M and with Simatic ET 200pro FC-2.
The Sinamics IOP-2 can be either plugged directly onto the converter's control unit, door mounted to enable operation from outside the control cabinet, or connected by IOP-handheld to enable mobile wired operation in difficult-to-access locations.
