SIMOTICS Industrial Electric Motors from Siemens
Toshont is pleased to offer our customers in Canada SIMOTICS industrial electric motors from Siemens, the German multinational conglomerate that’s the largest industrial manufacturing company in Europe. With SIMOTICS, Siemens offers the most comprehensive range of industrial electric motors worldwide. We at Toshont feel privileged to represent a company of such global renown—a company whose motors provide the optimum solution for almost every conceivable application. Backed by 150 years of experience, Siemens motors are unrivaled when it comes to reliability and performance—and are the first choice for many standard drive applications in industry and an integral component of many digital enterprises.
The SIMOTICS motor line comprises:
- Low-voltage motors for line and converter operation;
- Motors for motion control;
- DC motors, and;
- High-voltage motors.
Today, we are going to look at three categories of low-voltage SIMOTICS motors:
- General purpose motors (SIMOTICS GP);
- Severe duty motors (SIMOTICS SD), and:
- Definite purpose motors (SIMOTICS DP).
SIMOTICS GP: General purpose motors
Some people might think that “general purpose” suggests “marginal” or “bare-minimum” quality. With Siemens SIMOTICS GP motors that’s not at all true. Quite the opposite. Siemens ensures high structural strength through the use of finite element analysis to strategically place material within each component to resist the effects of stress and vibration. Corrosion-resistant materials are used liberally throughout for long life, which translates to exceptional value.
SIMOTICS general purpose motors have an aluminum enclosure and are ideal for innumerable standard drive tasks in a truly diverse range of industries. Their design and architecture allow for maximum flexibility and minimum installation costs. To make them easy to use, SIMIOTICS general purpose motors are fitted with integral lifting eyes, screw-on feet, reinforced bearing end shields with optimum mechanical properties and easily accessible terminal boxes. On top of that, encoders, brakes and separately driven fans can be added easily. Given their remarkably low weight, they are commonly used for applications in pumps, fans and compressors. That said, they can also be reliably incorporated into conveyor systems and lifting gear.
SIMOTICS SD: Severe duty motors
Siemens severe duty motors have a cast iron enclosure and are rugged in the extreme. This ruggedness makes them warriors in harsh environments. And despite the elements to which they can be subjected, they do an outstanding job, even with intense dust and high vibration levels, as well as in truly taxing work environments common in the petrochemical, pulp and paper, mining, water and wastewater industries. Siemens severe duty motors are used to power fans, compressors, pumps, conveyors, hoists, and winders and countless other applications in the toughest environments. Their design ensures optimum motor cooling and, as a result of their modular platform concept, SIMOTICS SD motors handle just like general purpose series motors do. Siemens SIMIOTIC SD motors are built to work hard year after year—with nary a complaint.
SIMOTICS DP: Definite purpose motors
Every sector of the economy has its own requirements when it comes to drive technology. And Siemens, which has been designing and building electric motors for an impressive range of industries for an equally impressive number of years, has a deep, nuanced understanding of what those requirements are. This results in precision-fit solutions, which explains why companies keep coming back to Siemens motors year after year, even as technology and processes dramatically change.
Siemens definite purpose motors run the gamut from smoke extraction motors, marine motors, roller table motors, and crane motors to customized motors for specific applications in, for example, ventilating tunnels, parking garages, shopping malls, port cranes and container terminals.
