Ideal for all sectors

SINAMICS G220 is a feature-rich modular frequency drive that can be used in a wide range of industries, but it is particularly well-suited for the food and beverage, chemical, pharmaceutical, oil and gas, and maritime sectors.

In all sectors

SINAMICS G220 can be used in moving, processing, pumping, ventilating, compressing, and positioning applications and meet even the most demanding needs because of its extensive feature set and creative design.

Food and Drink

  • Maximum flexibility: The food and beverage sector is characterised by the unique needs of each customer. These needs can be swiftly and simply satisfied with SINAMICS G220 by adding the required hardware option or software feature.
  • Standardisation: The food and beverage (F&B) business is a very varied one, with a wide range of applications such as centrifuges, spray dryers, and mixers deployed throughout many nations. Manufacturers can standardise their factories globally using SINAMICS G220 since it complies with international rules and standards.


• High adaptability: SINAMICS G220 can keep up with the fast-paced environment of the pharmaceutical industry. It is an ideal fit for the industry since it is a versatile drive system.

• Enhanced availability: The SINAMICS G220’s S2 redundancy, sturdy IP55 design, and 3C3 coating, which are appropriate for hostile situations, ensure the system’s availability. The integrated cyber security features of SINAMICS G220 protect user access to the automation process while maintaining the security of your data.


  • Safe in all settings: Even in the most taxing circumstances, machines must operate dependably and safely. The chemical sector is a perfect fit for SINAMICS G220 because of its 3C3 coating and IP55 high level of protection. More dependability can be achieved by supporting S2 redundancy with SINAMICS G220.
  • Possibility of optimisation: Utilising resources as efficiently as possible is more important than ever in these times of resource scarcity and growing expenses. More transparency is available with SINAMICS G220, which gives you meaningful data for process analysis and optimisation.

Oil & Gas

  • Reduced costs: Since a plant’s continuous throughput is used to gauge its efficiency, any malfunction incurs large downtime expenses. By guaranteeing the availability of machines and systems with integrated webservers for quick diagnostics and maintenance via various customers, SINAMICS G220 lowers these losses.
  • High degree of safety: In order to protect people and plants in hostile situations, the oil and gas business requires extensive machine safety. SINAMICS G220 can meet even the most demanding requirements because of the OM-SMT option module, which guarantees safe motor temperature for ATEX applications with an ATEX certified motor protection, and the Safety Integrated Extended software licence SIL3 / PLe.


  • Less harmonics and emissions: The marine industry aims to reduce its carbon footprint, which means that applications need to be as energy efficient as possible. In addition, harmonics must be limited to a minimum, especially in an island grid. With SINAMICS G220 Clean Power, both goals can be achieved.
  • High level of protection: To guarantee the availability of all systems and applications, all components must be extremely robust. Thanks to IP55 protection and 3C3 coating on the electronics, SINAMICS G220 is ideally suited for the marine industry.
