Siemens extends application spectrum for Sinamics V90 servo drive system

03.11.2015
  • New 200-volt converters and motors with lower shaft heights and lower moments of inertia added to basic servo drive system
  • Different converter sizes and motor shaft heights cover a large field of application
  • Connection to a higher-level controller now possible via Modbus/USS communication

Siemens has extended its basic servo drive system, consisting of the Sinamics V90 converter and the Simotics S-1FL6 servo motor, to serve a much wider field of application. The basic servo drive system is now available with 200-volt converters and motors with lower shaft heights and lower moments of inertia ("Low Inertia"/LI) – in addition to the familiar 400-volt versions with a higher moment of inertia ("High Inertia"/HI) of the servo motors.

The 200-volt converters are up to 25 percent smaller than the 400-volt versions and therefore save additional space in the control cabinet. With a total of eight converter sizes and seven motor shaft heights with a power range from 0.05 to 7.0 kilowatts, the system is suitable for service in single- and three-phase networks.

The different motor shaft heights and flange dimensions address the demands of the Asian market. Thanks to the lower moments of inertia of the motors, a wide range of motion control tasks can be realized in a cost-efficient manner. Here the focus is on dynamic motion and processing – for example positioning, transporting and winding in a wide range of applications.

Numerous integrated functions such as pulse train input positioning (PTI), USS/Modbus connection, internal positioning (IPos) as well as speed and torque control enable users to reduce their machine costs. A braking resistor has been integrated as standard to improve dynamic performance.

Furthermore, the servo converter also features a rapid pulse train input of up to 1 megahertz (MHz) and supports absolute encoders with a 20-bit resolution. These functions give the system a high level of fast positioning accuracy and a low level of speed ripple. The improved servo performance is made possible by a number of features including the three-fold overload capacity of the Simotics S-1FL6 servo motor and the optimally coordinated combination of motor and converter as Integrated Drive Systems (IDS).

Using IDS-based drive technology, Siemens boosts productivity, energy-efficiency and reliability in all automation environments and throughout the entire lifecycle.

Sinamics V90 is also characterized by its outstanding ease of use. For example, the Sinamics V-Assistant software tool, which is available as a free download, supports commissioning, engineering and diagnosis of the converter. Intuitive menu navigation gives a clear overview of the commissioning procedure.

Thanks to coated electronic modules in the Sinamics V90 and a protection rating of IP65 for the Simotics S-1FL6, the drive system is extremely rugged – even in difficult ambient conditions. The integrated Safe Torque Off (STO) safety function prevents the motor from rotating unexpectedly, thereby improving safety for both machine and operator.

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
