SINAMICS DCM - Parameterizing and Commissioning (DR-DCM-PM)

  • Your area of responsibility includes the commissioning of SINAMICS DCM DC drives. Modern power converters offer a variety of functions and setting options. A targeted approach will save you time and help you avoid errors. In this course, you will learn the step-by-step procedure for commissioning. You will use the STARTER software to carry out parameterization and data backup. By setting the parameters correctly, you support the reliable operation of the entire system.


  • After the course, you will be able to commission the SINAMICS DCM converter safely and efficiently. You will be able to adapt the parameters of the control system to the respective application and use the diagnostic tools in the event of a fault.
