Overview of the supported hardware and functions of SINAMICS drives based on the CU320-2 by SINAMICS Startdrive V15
When using Heidenhain DQI encoders with SINUMERIK, after an NCK power on reset, fault messages are sporadically output. As a consequence, motors equipped with these encoders are not accepted in the actual topology of the drives, which represents an error condition.
With the new design, the supplied ferrite core in the line cable is removed from G120C FSAA 2.2kW filtered variants (USS/DP/PN) supplied box.
In Startdrive V15.0 a license key has to be entered in the parameter list, in parameter p9920 using ASCII coding.
Motor related parameters have reverted back to default when the uploaded from a G120C and loaded back into the G120C FSAA. This is because the MLFB has changed with the last digit changing from a 1 to a 2.
The SIMATIC Assessment Suite - Data Collector (SAS-DC) - formerly known as SIMATIC Diagnostics Tool (SDT) - enables you to simply and easily collect diagnostics and system information from computers or other devices.
This FAQ applies to SINAMICS G120C/CU240B-2/CU240E-2/CU250S-2/CU230P-2 delivered with firmware V4.7 SP9 HF1 (all communication protocol and safety variants).
The Compatibility Tool is a function provided by the Industry Online Support with which you can select compatible software products or check the compatibility of existing configurations.
Guidance to resolve access problems to user defined web sites after updating the firmware to V5.1 SP1 HF1.
There are prepared function blocks in the "SINAMICS DriveLib" library for triggering various functions of the SINAMICS S120. Also located in the library is the function block "SINA_INFEED" via which the SINAMICS S120 line module can be triggered.
Bearing failures – identifying causes & avoiding failures
Summary SINAMICS G inverters are supplied ready to use. The functionality of the devices offered depends on the installed firmware version. Most of the inverters have loadable firmware versions and can be upgraded as required.
The SINAMICS drives do not support hardware interrupts. The "Hardware interrupt triggers" field is displayed by STEP 7 also with SINAMICS drives, but it has no function.
This FAQ describes how to use Siemens Eplan macros with placeholder objects in Eplan electric P8.
Line reactors are used to smooth voltage peaks and to bridge commutating dips. In addition to that line reactors reduce the effects of harmonics on the inverter and the line supply.
Certain function expansions of the SINAMICS converter family are covered by licenses. If you have one of these functions but have not activated the relevant license, this is requested via alarm or fault numbers (A….; F….).
The new PM240-2 Power Modules – in frame sizes FSD … FSF replace the previous PM240 Power Modules, they replace the PM340 Power Modules – and therefore also extend the power range of the SINAMICS S120 AC/AC. The PM240P-2 Power Modules replace the PM230 Power Modules in IP20 of the SINAMICS G120P – and therefore also extend the power range here.
Free trial versions of TIA Portal components V14 and V14 SP1 are available from this web page.
