  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

We herewith announce phase-out (M400I) of project- and customer-specific SIVACON motor and soft starters as well as frequency converters 8PV5*. These devices will be replaced by SIRIUS MCU motor starters, M200D motor starters and G110D/G120D frequency converters.

Date for the Phase-out Announcement : 2010-12-01

In the past, SIVACON MCU motor and soft starters as well as frequency converters were individually manufactured customer- and project-specifically.
Many of these versions comprise frequency converters of the MM411 and MMI range. These products have been type-cancelled by I DT MC and are no longer available for new systems.

All products listed above will be classified for phase-out (M400) as per 12/01/2010, type-cancelled (M410) as per 01/01/2011 and discontinued (M490) as per 04/01/2011.

For new systems, we therefore recommend application of our current products such as:
Motor starters SIRIUS MCU 3RK4* or M200D 3RK13* and frequency converters G110D or G120D.
