Now available from HMK, the new Siemens DC Drive


Sinamics DC Master (DCM) integrates direct current technology into the modern Sinamics drive platform. New features ensure DC technology has a bright future in drive technology. The new power converter series is a scalable drive system suitable for both basic and sophisticated applications and can be expanded in terms of both functionality and performance.

Users can tailor the solution to meet various processing power requirements by choosing a standard control unit, an advanced control unit or a combination of the two.  The devices are available for two or four quadrant operation depending on the application. The rated direct current of the devices ranges from 15 to 3,000 A and can be further increased through parallel connection of the DC converters.

Servicefriendly design, reliable components and redundancy concepts also increase system availability.

New features include:-

+ Sinamics DC technology drive system for both basic and sophisticated applications

+ Tools from the three-phase technology sector such as Sizer and Starter now also available for direct current technology

+ Scalable functionality and performance

+ Commissioning and operation via the user-friendly AOP30 operating panel and BOP20 numerical operating panel

+ Profibus interface as standard and optional Profinet interface, as well as analog and digital interfaces
