The SINAMICS G130 converter built-in units provide machine builders and plant constructors with a modular drive system that can be tailored to specific applications.
SINAMICS G130 converter built-in units mainly consist of the following modular, stand-alone components:
- Power Module
- Control Unit
They may be located separately from one another or combined in a single unit. The Power Module contains a slot for the Control Unit.
The Power Modules are supplied with a DRIVE-CLiQ cable for communication and a cable for the 24 V supply to the Control Unit. These cables are pre-assembled for installing the Control Unit in the Power Module. If the two units are installed in separate locations, the cables must be ordered in the appropriate lengths.
The AOP30 Advanced Operator Panel and the numeric BOP20 Basic Operator Panel can be used for commissioning and local operation.
Predefined interfaces, via terminal block or the CU320‑2 Control Unit with either PROFIBUS or PROFINET, make commissioning and control of the drive much easier. The interfaces of the CU320‑2 Control Unit can be supplemented with add-on modules, such as the plug-in TB30 Terminal Board or the TM31 Terminal Module.
If further customer interfaces are required for the communication with the drive, an external 24 V supply must be provided.
The following two figures provide assistance when assembling the required converter components. The first figure shows the design and individual components of a SINAMICS G130 drive. The second figure is a flowchart containing the decision and selection criteria required for the individual components.
The following converter components are equipped as standard with coated modules:
- Power Modules
- Control Units
- Sensor Modules
- Terminal Modules
- Advanced Operator Panel (AOP30)
The coating on the modules protects the sensitive SMD components against corrosive gases, chemically active dust and moisture.
All copper busbars of the Power Modules are nickel-plated in order to achieve the best possible immunity to environmental effects. The bare copper connections also do not have to be cleaned for customer connections.
