H B Systems – as Siemens Solution Partner for Automation Systems and Drive Technology – has been appointed as agent for its range of entry level variable speed drives, the SINAMICS V20 range. H B Systems carries stock of these drives at its premises in Somerset West.

According to H B Systems, the V20 drives offer many advantages over other products, including increased reliability, ease-of-use, low cost-of-use and high energy efficiency. The SINAMICS V20 VSD is widely adaptable and suitable for use in many applications, including pumping, moving, compressing, processing etc.

These drives have built-in macros for PID control, high torque start for easy breakaway and a “Quick Commissioning” function.

The SINAMICS V20 is also extremely energy efficient. The integrated ECO mode for V/f and V2/f characteristic loads automatically adapts the motor flux to save energy. Energy consumption can be displayed in kWh, COemission or even in local currency. During periods where the drive is not in use it can be set to “hibernate,” thus lowering energy consumption.The V20 can exchange regenerated energy via DC-link coupling between drives, thereby saving more energy and obviating the use of resistive braking components.

The H B Systems team is happy to help with the commissioning and any further support needed for these drives.
