The newest Simotics slipring motors are designed and dimensioned for applications with high load inertia and low starting current requirements, typically relevant in the cement and mining industries.
Especially in high torque applications, the Simotics HV M slipring motors are said to reduce the mechanical stress on the complete, installed equipment. Therefore, the plant availability could be increased, whereas wear and tear may be reduced, and the lifetime of the plant may also be increased.
“The motors can easily be integrated into SIDRIVE IQ applications to improve plant availability, serviceability, productivity and efficiency for our customers. Plant planning and plant upgrades can be realised faster by using the 3D-model data of the motor,” said Hermann Kleinod, CEO of Siemens Large Drives Applications.
The Simotics HV M slipring motor’s design is based on a modular platform concept, with lower weight and increased housing rigidity. Due to its modularity, it is said to be flexibly and efficiently adjusted to individual business requirements. The high grades of standardisation in the Simotics HV M slipring are also said to make it easier to find spare parts to reduce operating costs and simplify service, avoiding plant downtime.
