The single-axis Sinamics V20 drive is designed for basic applications featuring short commissioning times, easy operation, and cost and energy benefits. It comes in four frame sizes covering the performance range from 1/6–20hp and is used to operate pumps, fans, compressors and conveyor systems. It is also used for simple drive tasks in the processing and handling industries. This compact drive can be connected directly in-line and mounted as a push-through installation in addition to the conventional wall-mounting method. Since no further modules or add-on options are required for operation, installation time is minimized. The integrated Basic Operator Panel (BOP) enables trouble-free onsite commissioning and operation. Besides the universal serial interfaces that allow for easy connection to Sinamics PLC controllers, a Modbus interface is also included for communication with third-party controls.
