Parametrizzazione e messa in servizio SINAMICS S120 con SINAMICS Starter (DR-S12-PM)

  • Modern converter systems offer a variety of functions and setting possibilities. By a purposeful procedure you could save time and avoid faults. In this course you will learn the procedure at commissioning SINAMICS S120 step by step. You can handle parameter setting and data saving with the software SINAMICS Starter. By a correct parameter setting you will support the reliable operation of the entire plant. After the course you will put the converter system SINAMICS S120 efficiently into operation. You can adapt the parameters of the closed-loop controller to the respective application and use the diagnostic tools in case of a fault.


  • After attending the course, you can:
    • Install all components of a SINAMICS S120 drive
    • Recognize the benefits of DRIVE-CLiQ
    • Parameterize a SINAMICS S120 drive via SINAMICS Startdrive and commission it
    • Use the built-in diagnostic features
