Siemens is offering a simple and cost-effective drive solution with its compact SINAMICS V20 Basic Performance converter. SINAMICS V20 sets itself apart as a result of its quick commissioning times, ease of operation, robustness and cost-efficiency. With seven frame sizes, it covers a power range extending from 0.12 kW up to 30 kW.
With the frame sizes FSAA and FSAB for the single-phase 230V mains operation, the SINAMICS V20 is Siemen´s smallest converter on the market so far. With a width of just 68 millimeters and a height of 142 millimeters, the corporation has substantially reduced the installation dimensions of the SINAMICS V20 for low powered motors. Optionally the devices are available with integrated radio interference filter, which allows compliance with disturbance limit according to IEC 61800-3 category C1 when installed according to EMC (electro magnetic compatibility) in the cabinet. Consequently the frame sizes FSAA and FSAB comply with the disturbance requirements of industrial applications as well as with applications in residential and business areas, e.g. for commercial use such as refrigerated counters, workout devices, ventilation systems, commercial washing machines, etc.
The new SINAMICS V20 Smart Access webserver module (option) can easily be mounted on the converter. It makes the use of the SINAMICS V20 converter even more simple and convenient, allowing wireless commissioning and operation via smartphone, tablet or laptop.

SINAMICS V20 has a compact design, and can be individually adapted to the particular application or user requirements using various options (for example, an external BOP, connecting cable, filter, braking resistors, shielding, ...). The compact devices are suitable for industrial applications, such as pumps, fans, compressors and conveyor systems. On the other hand, the compact converters can also be used in residential and business environments – for commercial applications, such as refrigerated counters, fitness equipment, ventilation systems and commercial washing machines.
