  • Siemens presents liquid-cooled, robust power conversion system based on proven Sinamics S120 platform
  • Grid converter comes with certification in accordance to VDE-AR-N 4110 and with validated simulation model for easy project planning, optimization and integration into the power grid 

With Sinamics PCS, Siemens presents a new power conversion system for battery storage applications. The Sinamics PCS grid converter makes locally generated battery power usable for industrial and public power grids. Sinamics PCS controls the charging and discharging process of the battery and helps to handle load peaks and grid disturbances via the battery storage, to store the electricity in an energy- and cost-efficient manner and to bring the energy stored in batteries efficiently and reliably into the grid.

The grid converter is based on the industry proven technology of the Sinamics S120 platform and works particularly energy-efficiently thanks to its liquid cooling. The compact and robust power conversion system includes connection technology and control, line filter, converter and liquid cooling and can be easily integrated as a complete system in control rooms or containers.

Sinamics PCS is certified in accordance with the "Technical Connection Rules” VDE-AR-N 4110, which is valid in Germany. This means that stationary battery storage units can be connected to the public medium-voltage grid with minimal system certification effort. A validated Matlab/Simulink simulation model simplifies and accelerates the planning, optimization and grid integration of the power conversion system. And thanks to the Sinamics Startdrive tool in the engineering framework TIA Portal the grid converter can be integrated into the drive world comfortably. Operating states and system parameters can be read out via the Profinet communication interface. This allows the data from operation to be monitored and analyzed and makes precise statements about upcoming service work possible.

Motor Disconnect SwitchesMotor disconnects are more than simple on-off devices to satisfy lockout-tagout requirements. They have become an integral part of the motor control circuit as disconnects increasingly offer control functions, such as auxiliary contact interface, added selector switches and push buttons.

Disconnects can be fusible or non-fusible and can have different pole arrangements and environmental ratings. Multiple disconnects can be packed into one enclosure, saving space and cost while allowing you to address varied requirements, including harsh food processing or washdown applications.

Advanced Sensing Solutions for Cost-Effective Machine Building

Omron IOLinkSensing technology has a major presence in manufacturing machinery. It provides the foundation for maintaining consistent quality and detecting any lapses in machine performance. If subtle changes in the physical properties of a machine can cause it to fail, then the sensors responsible for detecting those changes can save manufacturers lengthy downtime and repair costs.

In addition to helping cut maintenance costs, sensors also present an opportunity to make the machines more cost-efficient. Whether through their resistance to harsh chemicals or their ability to reduce the overall machine footprint, the right sensors can make a huge difference.
