Digitalization of the new generation of Simotics SD motor series
Siemens has included a digital package for its new generation of SimoticsSD heavy-duty motors to address future trends in drive technology. Low-voltage motor based on cast iron housing, new design, rugged and reliable, compact structure and high power density. Its future-oriented energy efficiency design will bring significant benefits to customers and end users. Its excellent weatherability makes it ideal for use in dusty, vibration or corrosive environments and is widely used in petrochemical and other process industries.
The Simotics SD motor is compact and space-saving, and is available in two base sizes: 315 and 355. The newly designed motor series has excellent heat dissipation performance with efficiency levels up to IE3, IE4 and system energy efficiency class IES2 while maintaining high power density. The new and flexible junction box design makes it easy to adapt to a variety of mounting positions. This series of motors is only available for 15 to 20 working days.
In the future, based on the new intelligent motor solution, through Siemens' cloud-based open IoT operating system, MindSphere, users can easily analyze the motor status and determine the maintenance plan and time. Depending on operating time and load conditions, drive components such as motors can experience varying degrees of wear or loss. When these changes are visible to the naked eye, wear often occurs for a considerable period of time and can result in downtime and unscheduled failures, and even unpredictable economic losses.
With Siemens Smart Motor Solutions and MindSphere technology, relevant motor data can be accessed anytime, anywhere for transparency and control, resulting in significant productivity, availability and production performance, optimized operation and maintenance capabilities and service.
This series of motors comes standard with DataMatrix identification code for motor readable identification. The intelligent device reads the motor identification information and quickly reads the relevant motor information such as the electronic nameplate, thus facilitating easy commissioning and spare parts ordering. With "Digital Twins", valuable tools such as 2D drawings and 3D models are also available.
