Announcement of product phase-out of the SIMOVERT MASTERDRIVES family MASTERDRIVES devices / cabinets / options / spare parts with short MLFB: 6SE70...., 6SE71...., 6SY7...., 6SX7....

Product lifetime of MASTERDRIVES.

Due to its superior functionality, comprehensive performance range and flexibility, MASTERDRIVES has been for many years a very successful drive system for single motor and multi-motor applications performed on production machines, in general machine building and all industry sectors.

We aim at continuing this unique success story with the new SINAMICS drive family. The SINAMICS drive system provides extended modularity and functionality, such as Safety Integrated functions, and Drive Control Chart (DCC) for the graphic configuration and extension of the device functionality via freely available control, calculation and logic blocks.

We want to inform you - our partner and customer - about our plans for the next few years so that you, as a user of our MASTERDRIVES drive system, have enough time to complete your migration to SINAMICS.

With effect from Oct. 1, 2010, we announce product phase-out, followed by a 10-year phase-out period.
The end of active marketing of the MASTERDRIVES series is scheduled for Oct. 1, 2011. During the phase-out period, you have unlimited access to our spare parts service and service support including extensive repair and service support. Thus, we want to ensure availability of the drive systems installed in the field.
Product discontinuation is scheduled for Oct. 1, 2020. After this date the product will be completely discontinued.

We are confident that, on the one hand, we can offer you a sufficient level of investment security for the equipment of your machines to ensure appropriate support for the drives installed in the field, and, on the other hand, we can offer you with the new SINAMICS drive system an innovative successor product.

Components which are also used in the SINAMICS system are excepted from the product cancellation:
