The new Sinamics G120X drive (photo) is designed for use with pumps, fans and compressors in many industrial sectors, such as water, wastewater, HVAC, irrigation, agriculture and more. Sinamics G120X has a power range of 1 to 700 hp (0.75–630 kW) and can operate in a temperature range from –4 to 140°F with any standard motor, including synchronous reluctance motors (SRM). Sinamics G120X meets all the latest and upcoming UL, NEMA and EN/IEC standards and offers up to 100 kA short-circuit current rating (SCCR), ensuring enhanced product safety and energy efficiency, says the manufacturer. The compact design of the G120X saves space in the control cabinet, and it has hardware-based built-in safety functions that are certified to SIL 3. — Siemens Digital Industries, Nuremberg, Germany
