Entry-level solution for motor management via Profinet
Siemens has extended the Simocode pro motor management system to include a new basic unit for standard motor applications.
Simocode pro V PN GP has a Profinet connection which facilitates easy entry into Profinet communication. The basic unit is supplemented by a current measuring module. It can be extended by an operator control block and a multifunction module – with additional inputs/outputs, and temperature and ground fault detection.
The new compact system for easy, economical motor management is said to be suitable for direct-on-line, reversing, and star-delta (wye-delta) starters as well as for controlling a soft starter.
The Simocode pro motor management system monitors, protects and controls constant-speed motors, and is equipped with predictive maintenance functions. In this way, Simocode pro reveals potential problems on a motor before they can occur, helping to avoid plant stoppages and increasing efficiency.>
