MOTOR DRIVE MIGRATION MADE EASY

Following the announcement from Siemens that its proven Micromaster line of convertors for motors and drives will be discontinued later this year, RS Components has committed to support its customers in migrating to the latest generation of Siemens Sinamics drive products.

Designed for use by machine builders and those involved in plant construction, the new Sinamics range of convertors offers a number of advantages over the Micromaster products. These include more power, higher performance and higher functionality, creating new possibilities to improve plants, systems and products.

Sinamics convertors cover a power range up to 132kW, come with integrated Profinet/Ethernet IP communications, feature graphic commissioning, rugged and dynamic control response, integrated DC link reactor, integrated positioning function, and extended pump, fan and compressor functions.

To help users understand the complexities encountered during the process of product migration a range of helpful tools and selector guides is now available via Siemens and RS, along with a conversion tool that provides recommendations based on user input.

RS will continue to stock the Micromaster range for as long as possible for customers that cannot easily migrate to Sinamics, as well as stocking the new Sinamics products to make the migration process as simple as possible.
