SIMATIC ET 200pro FC-2 Frequency converter

Frequency converters embedded in the distributed I/O for configurations without using electrical cabinets

SIMATIC ET 200pro FC-2 frequency converter for configurations without using electrical cabinets with high degree of protection IP65 and a power rating of up to 1.1 kW (1.5 kW) in the same mechanical design as a SIMATIC module with integrated safety function and regenerative capability. It expands the range of the SIMATIC ET 200pro system by distributed, speed-controlled drives. When combined with the other modules of the SIMATIC ET 200pro modular system, the frequency converter allows solutions to be realized that are precisely tailored to the particular plant or installation.

SIMATIC ET 200pro FC-2 Frequency converter – a brief summary of its strengths

Simple and fast mounting & installation

  • High degree of flexibility as ET 200pro modules can be freely combined with frequency converters

  • Less wiring through self-establishing voltage busbars and communication bus with each additional module

Faster engineering, faster setup and commissioning

  • Modules can be replaced without interrupting communications to the ET 200pro station and to the other modules within SIMATIC ET 200pro

  • Parameterization via STARTER and optional micro memory card as parameter storage medium

  • Standard mini USB interface for commissioning

Efficient and consistent solutions

  • Communication via PROFIBUS and PROFINET (polymer optical fiber POF) via the appropriate interface module

  • Safety Integrated function (STO) as standard

SIMATIC ET 200pro FC-2 Frequency converter – Typical fields of application

SIMATIC ET 200pro FC-2 frequency converter is suitable for the open-loop and closed-loop control of induction motors over a wide range of industrial applications. It is predestined for applications in conveyor technology where the drives are networked via PROFIBUS and PROFINET; and especially where it makes sense to combine several drives in a distributed configuration without requiring electrical cabinets. Examples include machining cells in the automotive sector or ninety degree routers in logistical systems.
