The motor and drive combinations are power-matched for 480V high-overload operation through a 20 hp range, with I2T  protection from thermal damage provided as a standard in both the motor and the drive components.  The Siemens Intelligent Operator Panel (IOP) is included with these packages, allowing easy step-by-step drive start-up. 

Application macros are provided in the Sinamics G120C drive for easy installation and wiring; the terminals are pre-assigned at the factory and the parameters are automatically set.  The SIMOTICS SD100 motors are rugged cast-iron with inverter duty ratings in a 4:1 speed range for constant torque and 20:1 speed range for variable torque.  Simotics SD100 units are severe-duty TEFC motors that meet NEMA Premium efficiency.

Communications selections on these matched motor/drive combinations include RS485 with USS and Modbus protocols.  A Profibus variant is also offered for a Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) solution.  TIA is the proprietary Siemens solution for achieving optimum performance, energy efficiency, and sustainability within a machine or manufacturing environment. 

Standard pricing has been established for a wide variety of motor/drive combinations from 1–20 hp and is included in the available literature on this new Siemens service.
