SINAMICS S120 Parameterizing and Commissioning in the TIA Portal (DR-S12-PMT)

  • In this course you learn to put the converter system SINAMICS S120 into operation using the PC tool Startdrive in the TIA P ortal. You can adapt the parameters to the respective application and perform diagnostics in case of a fault.


  •  You are responsible for the commissioning of SINAMICS S120 drive systems using the
  • commissioning software Startdrive in TIA Portal.
  •  Mod ern converter systems offer a variety of functions and setting possibilities. By a
  • purposeful procedure you can save time and avoid faults.
  •  In this course you will learn the procedure at commissioning step by step. You can handle
  • parameter setting and data saving with the software Startdrive in the TIA Portal. By a
  • correct parameter setting you support the reliable operation of the entire plant.
  •  After the course you can 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.
