SINAMICS V20 Basic Performance Converter

From the operation of pumps, fans or compressors to the movement of conveyor belts, the engineering costs for designing and commissioning drive solutions must be kept as low as possible. This is particularly relevant in the case of basic applications, where a straightforward commissioning process contributes enormously to the economic viability of the entire drive solution.


SINAMICS V20 — Robust and cost-effective

The compact SINAMICS V20 Basic Performance Converter sets itself apart thanks to its quick commissioning times, ease of operation, robustness and cost-efficiency. This frequency converter can be operated without the need for special engineering tools — simply work directly on the converter. Thanks to these features, the SINAMICS V20 from Siemens is a recommended and economical drive solution. With seven frame sizes, it covers a power range extending from 0,12 kW to 30 kW.
