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

  • SINAMICS DCM converters in conjunction with SIMOTICS DC motors are used for sophisticated and demanding applications in drive technology. A focused procedure when commissioning saves time and avoids critical faults. Correct commissioning supports reliable operation of the complete plant or system.


  • After the course you are able to reliably and efficiently commission the DC converters and adapt parameter settings to address the various applications. You can optimize the controller settings and in the case of faults, use diagnostic resources.
