SINAMICS G130 chassis units have been designed for variable-speed drives in machine building and plant construction.
They have been specially tuned to the requirements of drives with quadratic or constant load characteristics with medium performance requirements without regenerative feedback.
The control accuracy of the sensorless vector control is suitable for most applications, and additional actual speed value encoders are therefore superfluous.
SINAMICS G130 offer an economical drive solution which can be matched to the respective customer requirements by a wide range of components and options.

SINAMICS G130 provides a modular drive system for machine builders and plant constructors which permits a drive solution tailored to their applications. SINAMICS G130 consists of two modular, stand-alone components:

  • – Power Module and
  • – Control Unit.

The units can be located separately or combined together. The power module contains a space for the control unit.
The user-friendly AOP30 operator panel is available for start-up and local operation. Predefined interfaces, either via a terminal block or PROFIBUS, facilitate drive start-up and control. The interfaces of the control unit can be supplemented by additional modules.
