Online-Training - SINAMICS PERFECT HARMONY GH180 - Parameterizing and Commissioning (DR-GH18-PM)


  • This training course covers commissioning and servicing of SINAMICS PERFECT HARMONY GH180 drives according to Level III. You will understand the functional concept, the control structures and the integral PLC programming of "System Operational Program" (SOP). You will parameterize the drive, diagnose its status and analyze its function using the integral cabinet control panel, the TOOL SUITE PC tool and the DEBUG tool.
Type Online-Training

    • Basic knowledge of drive engineering
    • Experience with low voltage or medium voltage drives
    • The participant must be an electrically skilled person
    • Technical requirements > cRSP


  • The course is split in equal parts into "theory" (classroom presentation with active participation of the trainees) and "lab work" (working on given assignments on programming, engineering and commissioning)
  • Lab work is carried out on an air cooled SINAMICS PERFECT HARMONY GH180 drive with motor and on simulators (original control boards with simulated power device and motor)
  • Knowledge gained during the course is verified by an extensive test.
  • This converter was named until 2013 "ROBICON Perfect Harmony".
  • Until 2015 this course was named DR-PH-EXP.
