With this new feature,
Siemens is responding to the current needs of industry for greater
sustainability. Electric motors are responsible for over 70 percent of
industrial energy requirements. Simotics SD IE4 motors are already very
energy-efficient with an efficiency of up to over 96% and are therefore also
optimally designed for operation directly on the grid. By using motors of the
very high efficiency classes IE4 or even IE5, savings of up to 6% of electrical
energy are possible. Using perfectly matched motor and converter systems for
variable-speed operation of pumps, fans and compressors, energy savings of up
to 30% can be achieved, and in some cases even more.
However, the real key
to greater energy efficiency lies in the system as a whole: the interaction of
all individual measures - from more efficient motors with variable-speed
control, through digital system components and tools, to the use of
electrically buffered energy in the motor network - can achieve savings of up
to 60 percent in the system network. Digitalization will thus make a major
contribution to increasing the energy efficiency of motor-driven applications
in the future. Analyze MyDrives Edge is also part of the Siemens Xcelerator
portfolio, the new digital business platform. This enables customers of all
sizes to accelerate their digital transformation and increase value creation.
The new business platform is characterized by simplicity, flexibility, and
openness - all geared to the overarching goal of making the digital
transformation of companies easier, faster, and more scalable.
