Effective October 1st, 2017 the MICROMASTER 420/430/440 standard drives including options and accessories will be withdrawn from the active marketing phase and managed as a product to be phased out.

Generally the phase-out period is one year and is intended to give users time to switch over to alternative products.

Drives from the SINAMICS family www.sinamics.com  are available as alternative drive products:

SINAMICS G120C as a main alternative to MICROMASTER 420 www.siemens.com/sinamics-g120c

SINAMICS G120P as a main alternative to MICROMASTER 430 www.siemens.com/sinamics-g120p

SINAMICS G120 as a main alternative to MICROMASTER 440 www.siemens.com/sinamics-g120

Support when switching over to SINAMICS has been embedded in the MICROMASTER Internet page www.siemens.com/micromaster   in the form of further links, e.g. a link to an article number recoding tool.

The phase out announcement will be joined by a distinct increase of the list prices and longer delivery times.
