Siemens announced the new Simotics HV M slipring motor that serves a wide range of applications in the cement and mining industries. The Simotics HV M has a power range up to 4.5 MW and completes the Siemens slipring motor family, which now covers 0.5 to 8.2 MW.
The motors are designed and dimensioned for applications with high load inertia and low starting current requirements. Especially in high torque applications, the motors reduce the mechanical stress on installed equipment, which increases plant availability, reduces wear and tear, and increases the plant lifetime.
“The motors can easily be integrated into SIDRIVE IQ applications to improve plant availability, serviceability, productivity and efficiency for our customers. Plant planning and plant upgrades can be realized faster and more precise by using the 3D-model data of the motor,” said Hermann Kleinod, CEO Siemens large drives applications.
The Simotics HV M design is based on a modular platform concept, with lower weight but increased housing rigidity. Due to its modularity, it can be flexibly and efficiently adjusted to individual business requirements.
Critical for cement plants and mining operations, the high grades of standardization in the Simotics HV M makes it easy to find spare parts to reduce operating costs and simplify service, avoiding plant downtimes to save time and costs. Ease of serviceability also help increase uptime. Machine covers can be lifted easily and service openings all around allow easy access to the interior.
