Siemens Introduces Nema 1 and Ul Type 1 Wall-Mounting Kits for Its G-Series Drive Platform

Low-cost kits allow easy-to-install, direct mounting of G120C Compact and G120 PM240-2 modular drive

Siemens announced today the availability of wall-mounting kits for its Sinamics G120C and G120 PM240-2 modular drives.  These low-cost kits allow easy, fast installation of the drives and conform to NEMA 1 and UL Type 1 standards for interior applications. These wall-mount kits are designed in accordance with UL 61800-5-1 standards for AC drives.

Available in power ranges from ½ to 200 hp and voltages from 230V to 690V, the kits offer streamlined, compact design for use with all drive frame sizes of the corresponding Siemens drive units.  Each kit provides best-in-class space-savings and direct access to the drive-mounted operator panel for simple commissioning, condition monitoring and even troubleshooting.

The new kits accommodate all G120C, PM240-2 and PM240P-2 power modules, control units and operator panels in the Sinamics drive family.  Standardized designs permit efficient side-by-side mounting with minimal clearance, while multiple conduit knockout holes allow separate power, motor, I/O and network cabling.

Seven kits are currently available to fit all drive units from AA to F frame sizes.

Siemens offers seven sizes of NEMA 1/UL Type 1 wall-mounting kits for its popular G120C and PM240-2 modular drives. The kits feature space-savings plus multiple knockouts for separate power, motor, I/O and network cabling.

A Not-So New Face Adds Value

My name is Ioana and I’ve been a part of the Bernard & Company team for almost three years. My activities as a marketing information specialist help our clients increase their profits and become better-known within their industries.

One of my primary duties is to read magazines for our clients’ PR. Once identified, the appearances are scanned and archived online. When one of our clients meets with us to talk about the results of their PR campaign, they are presented with magazine clippings and online access to PR that appeared both online and in print. This benefits our clients in two ways. First, clients like Grieve and Suhner, who sell their products in many markets, see which magazines are most responsive to their PR. Secondly, it is very helpful for them to see their ROI. Some clients consistently realize ROI in the 15-20:1 range, depending on the quantity of releases, the occasion of success stories, and the breadth of their master media list.  We have clients who sell to very limited markets such as forge, foundry, tire and rubber molding, while others sell power tools, electric motors and industrial heat processing equipment to almost every industry.

Tim’s Take on the Industry

From time to time…

After 43 years in the agency business, always as a copywriter, I’ve seen many “evolutions” in the agency business.  I started in a world of print, when direct mail was the sizzle product and bingo cards were the “proof of performance” metric…a word we never used, as we said yardstick.  Funny.  New ads and PR took 30-45 days to appear, now we have our PR online in 30 minutes or less.

Today, the emergence of the internet and social media have radically altered the face of industrial marcom, which remains a lap behind the consumer world, but not because our business lacks the talent or foresight to implement the changes in technology.

Rather, the fundamental driver in our business…and yours, as captains of industry…is one that hasn’t changed a bit, over time.  It’s the fact that all 33 of our clients sell to only a small slice of the viewing public.  We have several clients with less than 1000 prospects in all North America, including one who sells tiremaking machinery.  Talk about a limited head count.  At the opposite end, we have a client who sells every market you can name with a piece of discretionary capital equipment, as I call it.  Requires a very different approach.

Suhner presents new SUNmic 60 Micro Motor System

SUHNER presents new grinding, milling and polishing system

Intelligent technology for tool and mold making

In many technical fields, ultrafine grinding is one of the tasks that gives the product its final polish – in the truest sense of the word. This applies equally to both precision and the visual appeal.

The new SUHNER SUNmic 60 micro motor drive system

One of the leading manufacturers of professional surface treatment tools and machines for over a hundred years, SUHNER now offers an innovative grinding, milling and polishing system, SUNmic 60.

The central element is an intelligent control unit with touch panel that can accept a range of micro motors and tool hand pieces depending on the application. The control part has modern features such as touch screen operation on a glass display, the option to save settings and a rotation speed regulator with tangible resistance.

Key settings are easily legible on a large digital display.



Micro motor system

The actual tools are driven by powerful micro motors whose 280 W place a lot of power in the user’s hand. The compact, brushless BL/DC motors provide an extraordinarily wide speed range of 1000–60,000 rpm and deliver a high torque. In practice, they can be compared with pneumatic technologies but do not need a compressed air supply, operate at lower energy levels and emit virtually zero noise, without exhaust air or oil mist emissions.

One further benefit is that they run virtually free of vibration. The high concentricity safeguards clean and reproducible results in all areas of operation. A special heavy-duty clamping system prevents the millers from shifting. Chuck diameters range from 2.35, 3.0 and 6.0 mm to 1/8 and 1/4 inch.

 
Flexible applications

The new SUNmic 60 micro motor system can be connected to a 90–240 V source, and can therefore be used anywhere in the world. It offers a large number of combinations. The tools range from straight, angle and filing hand pieces to belt grinders. The control unit can be connected to two BL/DC motors and an AC motor.

Advantage: The new control unit is compatible with available micro motors. This is a true multi-purpose tool for many applications.

The new system can be used everywhere a precision finish is desired – for instance, grinding, milling, brushing and polishing in tool and mold making; in aircraft, engine and motor building; in engine tuning; and much more. SUHNER offers a range of matching machines, tools and abrasives that have been tailored specifically to each of these applications. Also an illustrated mold making tool catalog is available.
 

The new SUNmic 60 micro motor system has been designed for complex milling, grinding, brushing and polishing work in tool and mold making; in aircraft, engine and motor building; and similar applications.

Together with the brushless BL/DC motors, the hand pieces deliver the maximum in performance.
The high concentricity and low-vibration running can only benefit the final results.

 

The most important properties of SUNmic 60:

  • Robust control unit with intelligent features and uncluttered digital display
  • Touch screen operation on glass display
  • Rotation speed regulator with tangible resistance
  • Two sockets for hand pieces with the new BL/DC motors and one for conventional motors with carbon brushes
  • Separate, nonvolatile rotation speed memory for each connection
  • Wide, continuous range of rotation speeds of 1000–60,000 rpm
  • High torque
  • Low-vibration running and noiseless operation
  • High concentricity of 0.01 mm
  • Manual and automatic workpiece clamping under high forces
  • Overload protection, dust and spray water protection
  • Option for connecting a pedal



Knowhow on site

SUHNER provides demo services for field expertise. This offers interested parties expert advice, free of charge, from experienced field workers. The demo services vehicle carries all the usual tools, attachments and abrasives, plus the right end to end solution can be found directly onsite based on the actual workpieces.
