  2. DR-G12P - Description

SINAMICS G120P for Heating, Ventilation, and Air-conditioning Systems Course (DR-G12P)


  • In building management systems, pumps and fans are increasingly being operated using frequency converters. The SINAMICS G120P converter with CU230P-2 BT or CU230P-2 HVAC control unit is ideally suited to this purpose. In addition, external components may be reduced due to integrated converter functions.
  • Once you have completed this course, you will be able to commission your drive as required. Should faults occur, you will be familiar with diagnostic and troubleshooting procedures. You will also have acquired sufficient knowledge of the extensive functions and various interfaces. As such, you will be able to assign parameters to the drive for autonomous operation and control system operation.
