Just because it's Easy...

As more and more applications in plant and machinery construction require custom solutions to automate simple motion sequences with minimal requirements, Siemens answers with the compact SINAMICS V20 drive.

  • Easy to install

  • Easy to use

  • Easy to save money

... doesn't mean it's not Powerful.

The SINAMICS V20 is surprisingly versatile, features quick commissioning times, robustness, and energy

efficiency. With four frame sizes, it covers a power range extending from 0.16 to 20 HP.

SINAMICS V20 - E Frame

New Frame E Offers Higher HP, More Applications

The SINAMICS V20 drive family, frame sizes A–D (up to 20hp / 15kW at 480V AC), was introduced in the US market two years ago. Now Frame Size E has been released with a power rating of up to 40hp (30kW) at 480V AC. Similar to frame sizes A–D, the new size can be used in a very broad range of applications, such as pumps, fans and compressors, as well as more complex applications like conveyors and processing.

Typical Applications

SINAMICS V20 has a compact design, and can be individually adapted to the particular application or user requirements using various options - for example, an external BOP, connecting cable, filter, braking resistors, shielding.. The rugged construction is ideal for operating pumps, fans, compressors and conveyor belts, as well as for basic drive applications in the process and manufacturing industries.
