SINAMICS and SIMOTICS - Basics of Drive Technology (DR-GAT)


  • This course provides extensive basic information for activities in the field of electrical drive technology. The topics are addressed in a general manner, independently of specific products. In further courses on SINAMICS converters, you will be able to more easily realize details and understand their context. This is an advantage both in commissioning and diagnostics, and when configuring and planning drive systems.
