SINAMICS S120 Built-In Units

The flexible, modular drive system for sophisticated applications

SINAMICS S120 – Description

SINAMICS S120

SINAMICS S120 modular motion control drives are designed for high performance drive applications in mechanical and systems engineering. With Siemens high performance drive capabilities, you get a range of coordinated components and functions as a complete motion control drives package. Our motion control drives include high-performance single drives and coordinated drives (multiple-axis applications) with vector or servo functionalities hat allow implementation of customized high performance drive solutions.With SINAMICS S120 motion control drives, you get a high performance drive that is flexible and increases productivity. In addition to an innovative system architecture and digital communication options, our motion control drives provide efficient engineering and quick commissioning resulting from innovative tools and simple wiring. The motion control drives in the SINAMICS S120 high performance drive range deliver performance from 0.12 to 4,500 kW and come in a variety of designs and cooling types.
