Product phase-out for SINAMICS G120 Control Unit CU240E

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

Our new Control Units CU240B-2 and CU240E-2 have been released for delivery at the end of January. With the market introduction of the new Control Units CU240B-2 and CU240E-2 and the relevant PROFIBUS versions, we aim at closing a gap in the portfolio of the G120 regarding the migration of MICROMASTER 4.

  • The Control Unit CU240B-2 rounds off the modular SINAMICS G120 drive family downwards with regard to the IO quantity framework.

  • As standard, all versions of the Control Unit CU240E-2 are equipped with STO ("Safe Torque Off"). The Control Unit CU240E-2 (DP)-F rounds off the "E" series with the ExtendedSafety functions SS1 and SLS. Thus, it is a Control Unit without encoder, but with full safety functionality .

These Control Units replace the first generation of the CU240E.

With immediate effect, we announce the product phase-out and a price increase for the SINAMICS G120 Control Unit CU240E.
