SINAMICS V20 Basic converter

The versatile converter for basic solutions

SINAMICS V20 – Description

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.

SINAMICS V20, Frame size FS AA to FS E

We made it even smaller.

Siemens has launched FS AA and FS AB frame size SINAMICS V20 converters for single-phase 230 V mains operation, the company's smallest SINAMICS so far on the market. 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. The converters are optionally available with an integrated C1 EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) filter, which allows them to be used in residential and commercial environments in compliance with DIN EN 61800-3.

SINAMICS V20 – typical applications

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.
