Siemens SINAMICS G115 Distributed Drive System

Innovative system solutions for horizontal motion applications

The new SINAMICS G115D is a powerful drive system that has been specifically designed to address current and future challenges involving horizontal conveyor applications. Typical applications include intralogistics and airports. These markets face challenges such as the volume of demands and parcel shipments, and in environments where space is at a premium. This means that a higher volume must be handled in a shorter time. SINAMICS G115D is the optimum device when addressing all of these requirements as it operates reliably under harsh conditions and takes up little space. It combines a motor, frequency converter and gearbox in one single unit. This all-in-one solution means that it can be easily integrated into existing automation environments.

Steiner Automation specialists can help you configure the right distributed drive system for your requirements and provide guidance on how to improve operational efficiencies through integration.
