Siemens at the Hannover Messe 2015: Hall 9, Booth D35
Siemens has completed its spectrum of Simotics FD low-voltage motors. The new motors, covering the output range from 200 to 1,600 kilowatts and with shaft heights ranging between 315 and 450 millimeters, are optimized for converter operation and are particularly energy efficient, especially in the partial load range.
In combination with Sinamics low-voltage converters, they form an Integrated Drive System (IDS) that meets the requirements of the IES2 system efficiency class. Compared to the reference system of the standard, this means that losses are reduced by 35 percent.
The modular structure provides customers with maximum flexibility, allowing them to choose for example between air cooling and water cooling or between self-ventilation and forced ventilation. Service concepts such as predictive condition monitoring round off the portfolio.
The Simotics FD motors are ideally suited for use with Sinamics low-voltage converters and, as part of an IDS, offer a cost-effective, energy-efficient complete system that generates very little noise.
In combination with the Sinamics low-voltage converters, the drive train meets the requirements of the IES2 system efficiency class. If the entire drive system is water-cooled, heat recovery can be used to boost efficiency even further. Because the power density of the water-cooled motors is up to 30% higher, they are extremely compact.
The terminal box can be rotated in steps of 90 degrees, is diagonally divided and has a large format, making it particularly easy to connect. Comprehensive service, ranging from online condition monitoring and repair right through to retrofitting, is ensured via the global service network. The innovative and compact new motor design is compatible with the Simotics TN series N-compact. It has no need for external cooling ribs; these are integrated directly in the stator core in the rectangular gray cast-iron enclosure, enabling cooling to take place in the enclosure close to the heat source.
The Sinamics G120P converter and Simotics FD motor combination has been designed specifically for pump-and-fan applications, where it performs particularly well. Simotics FD motors are now used widely across all sectors, including plastics, cement, mining, steel, marine, paper, crane, water/wastewater and chemical. Thanks to the latest addition, they now cover the entire output range.

Successfully transferring Industrie 4.0 into reality

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
