Siemens Offers Free App to Select Drives

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL | Siemens offers its Sinamics Selector app free of charge. This solution displays the entire collection of products from the portfolio of low-voltage frequency drives on
the most popular iOS and Android smart phones and can be used both on- and off-line. Since Version 4.0, not only have brochures, product videos, and application examples been available to users and electrical distributors but also more language versions. 

Katharina Roehrlein, marketing manager for Sinamics drive systems at the Siemens Digital Factory division, explains additional innovations: "With the latest update, Version 5.0, we have adopted the second generation of the Sinamics G120 modular Frame Size D-E, as well as the Sinamics V20 Power Extension up to 30 kW, into the app. In addition, we have integrated more technical values such as resistance, peak performance, and continuous power ratings into the logic of the app…because we want to make it as easy as possible for our customers to find the right drive in order to save valuable time."

The Sinamics Selector app offers not only a product-specific but also an application-specific approach; the app can guide the user step-by-step to the right drive by asking for key parameters.

After choosing the required type of frequency inverter, the rated output, device options, and accessories can then be selected and adapted individually—if necessary, also with the support of the respective Siemens contact, whose details are also stored in the app. The overview includes actual part numbers for all of the selected components. This can be used as information for the customer but also as the basis for ordering specific components or preparing an offer at the local dealer/distributor.
