Siemens Micromaster 420

The MICROMASTER 420s are a range of frequency inverters for controlling the
speed of three phase AC motors. The various models available range from the
120 W single-phase input to the 11 kW three-phase input.

The inverters are microprocessor-controlled and use state-of-the-art Insulated Gate
BipoIar Transistor (IGBT) technology. This makes them reliable and versatile. A
special pulse-width modulation method with selectable Pulse frequency permits
quiet motor operation. Comprehensive protective functions provide excellent
inverter and motor protection.

The MICROMASTER 420 with its default factory settings, is ideal for a large range
of simple motor control applications. The MICROMASTER 420 can also be used
for more advanced motor control applications via its comprehensive parameter

The MICROMASTER 420 can be used in both ‘stand-alone’ applications as well as
being integrated into ‘Automation Systems’.

Mechanical installation

♦ To ensure the safe operation of the equipment, it must be installed and
commissioned by qualified personnel in full compliance with the warnings laid
down in these operating instructions.
♦ Take particular note of the general and regional installation and safety
regulations regarding work on dangerous voltage installations (e.g. EN
50178), as well as the relevant regulations regarding the correct use of tools
and personal protective gear.
♦ The mains input, DC and motor terminals, can carry dangerous voltages even
if the inverter is inoperative; wait 5 minutes to allow the unit to discharge after
switching off before carrying out any installation work.
♦ The inverters can be mounted adjacent to each other. If they are mounted on
top of each other, however, a clearance of 100 mm has to be observed.
♦ IP20 protection is only against direct contact, always use these products
within a protective cabinet.

Avoiding Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI)
The inverters are designed to operate in an industrial environment where a high level of EMI can be expected. Usually, good installation practices will ensure safe and trouble-free operation. If you encounter problems, follow the guidelines stated below.

Action to Take
Ensure that all equipment in the cubicle is well grounded using short, thick
grounding cable connected to a common star point or busbar
Make sure that any control equipment (such as a PLC) connected to the
inverter is connected to the same ground or star point as the inverter via a
short thick link.
Connect the return ground from the motors controlled by the inverters directly
to the ground connection (PE) on the associated inverter
Flat conductors are preferred as they have lower impedance at higher
Terminate the ends of the cable neatly, ensuring that unscreened wires are as
short as possible
Separate the control cables from the power cables as much as possible,
using separate trunking, if necessary at 90º to each other.
Whenever possible, use screened leads for the connections to the control
Ensure that the contactors in the cubicle are suppressed, either with R-C
suppressors for AC contactors or ‘flywheel’ diodes for DC contactors fitted to
the coils. Varistor suppressors are also effective. This is important when the
contactors are controlled from the inverter relay
Use screened or armored cables for the motor connections and ground the
screen at both ends using the cable clamps

Screening Methods
Gland Plate
The Gland Plate Kit is supplied as an option. It allows easy and efficient connection
of the necessary screening. See the Gland Plate Installation Instructions contained
on the Docu-CD.
Screening without a Gland Plate
Should a Gland Plate not be available, then the inverter can be screened using the
methodology shown .
