I/O extension module increases converter scope
For the smallest converter in its portfolio, the Sinamics V20, Siemens is now offering an extension module for the capture and output of digital and analogue signals.
The Sinamics V20 I/O extension module is mounted on the converter to provide two additional input and output interfaces, each for 400 volts, increasing both the flexibility and the scope of the converter.
Using connecting ports on the front and back, the extension module can also be combined with additional accessories from the Sinamics V20 portfolio.
The new module gives the converter additional functionalities such as the ability to control up to four pumps using only a single drive. It also allows the converter to be used for more applications. Typical applications could include pump, fan and compressor applications and any applications involving additional input and output ports with an output of 0.12 to 30 kilowatts.>
