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.

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
