Flexible extension of machinery and equipment
Frequency converter SD2S: stand-alone version with protection rating IP54
SIEB & MEYER has extended the well-proven frequency converter series SD2S by a new stand-alone version with high IP rating. Therefore, the frequency converter can be used outside a switch cabinet making the extension and modification of machinery and equipment more easy. In addition, concepts with decentrally arranged frequency converters are feasible.
"Usually, the space in switch cabinets is tight and existing capacities are fully utilized," Torsten Blankenburg, CTO at SIEB & MEYER AG, explains. "Our new, self-sufficient SD2S design offers customers the opportunity to put additional frequency converters into operation without any financial and organizational effort." The air-cooled stand-alone model has a mains voltage of 5 kVA @ 3 x 400VAC and will be available as series device from Q1 2019. With dimensions of 107 mm, 413 mm and 315.5 mm (WxHxD) the device is quite compact. Flexible cable passages enable a simple installation with ready-made cables. This also makes a device replacement easy, if service is required.
The drive system SD2S, especially designed for high-speed applications, is established in the machine tool industry amongst others – for example in high-precision internal grinding. But also applications such as turbo compressors and vacuum pumps are extremely suitable for SD2S. The system can be integrated by plug and play and allows highest motor powers at lowest possible motor temperatures.
