  • Efficient heat dissipation in liquid-cooled Sinamics S120 Cabinet Modules makes air conditioning unnecessary
  • Footprint smaller than with comparable air-cooled cabinets
  • Simple ordering process, installation and implementing thanks to integration into commercially available engineering tools

Thanks to the sealed cabinet system, the liquid-cooled Sinamics S120 Cabinet Modules frequency converter is ideally suited for use in harsh environments. Efficient heat dissipation means there is no need for air conditioning, which markedly reduces energy consumption.

The liquid-cooled Sinamics S120 Cabinet Modules frequency converter from Siemens is a converter for use in harsh ambient conditions. Efficient heat dissipation means there is no need for air conditioning, which markedly reduces energy consumption. Both optimized layout and effective cooling have helped to reduce the module’s footprint. Since the liquid-cooled Sinamics S120 Cabinet Modules frequency converter is integrated into commercially available engineering tools it also makes ordering easier.

Sinamics S120 Cabinet Modules frequency converters are part of a modular cabinet system for multi-motor drives. Siemens has extended this portfolio with a view to using it in such specifically harsh environments as in mining or the steel industry, where it makes sense to use a sealed cabinet to protect against chemically aggressive atmospheres.

The liquid-cooled Sinamics S120 Cabinet Modules provides a liquid cooling solution that is fully enclosed in order to protect the frequency converters against hostile ambient conditions. Here, a special cooling technology makes heat dissipation efficient and renders air conditioning unnecessary. Added to this, liquid cooling uses little energy which makes for leveraging additional energy savings potential.

Heat recovery principles can also be exploited by using the coolant heated up during the cooling process to provide low-cost process heat or room heating.

All individual liquid-cooled Sinamics S120 Cabinet Modules are perfectly compatible, modular, and can be flexibly combined. Additional a wide range of options is available, allowing specific requirements to be accommodated with ease. Factory pre-configuration and integration into commercially available selection and engineering tools, such as the Katalog, PMD and Sizer, make for simple ordering, installing, and commissioning of the system.

Sinamics S120 Cabinet Modules converters are mainly used in process, steel, and automotive industries and in the mining.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
