Online-Training - SINAMICS S120 - Planning and Engineering (DR-S12-PL)

  • You design and engineer motion control drives with highly dynamic performance using the SINAMICS S120 converter system. Special emphasis is placed on dimensioning a servo motor and the power unit - as well as the common infeed for multiple axes. In this course you will learn about the interrelationships between the specified load cycle and the static and dynamic data of the drive. Precise calculations are supported by the SIZER engineering software.


  • After the course, you will be able to quickly and reliably engineer multi-axis drive systems based on the SINAMICS S120.
