Siemens Sinamics G120 drive series now includes an option for wireless commissioning and service. The Smart Access module enables wireless connectivity of mobile devices such as tablets, smartphones and laptops over Wi-Fi to Sinamics G120 and Sinamics G120C drives.
The Smart Access module setup requires only a few steps using a standard web browser and any standard operating system. Its built-in web server functionality eliminates the need to download additional software, and its intuitive user interface and menu offers users outstanding convenience for drive commissioning, parameterization and maintenance.
Motors can even be tested in JOG mode. Warning signals and error messages are quickly detected over the wireless link, which can also be used to save or reset drive settings. The Sinamics G120 Smart Access module includes a function that enables the settings from one drive to be copied, sent to other mobile devices and used to commission additional drives.
“This provides an enormous time-savings when handling several drive units. It’s also possible to use the Sinamics G120 Smart Access module between different drives of the same series, allowing them to be commissioned using a single mobile device,” says Robert Soré, product manager, Sinamics general purpose drives. “In this case, the module acts as a portable storage device with web-based operator unit and wireless client link.”
The Sinamics G120 Smart Access Module is available for G120 drives with CU230P-2 and CU240E-2 control units as well as Sinamics G120C drives.
