Siemens SINAMICS G120XE Drive System

Published on: 

Siemens' new G120XE drive system is designed for use with pumps, fans, and compressors.

Siemens has unveiled its latest enclosed drive system, the SINAMICS G120XE, specifically tailored for industrial applications such as pumps, fans, and compressors. The system is based on the SINAMICS G120X infrastructure drive and is well-suited for sectors like oil-and-gas/petrochemical, water/wastewater, power plants, industrial climate control, refrigeration, and chillers operating in severe conditions.

The SINAMICS G120XE possesses a UL508A listing, a 65kA SCCR rating, a circuit breaker disconnect featuring a flange-mounted operator handle, a mechanical door interlock, an internal power control via a control power transformer, and a PWM IGBT inverter within the power module. It is capable of operating under light or high overload duty circumstances, thanks to its overload ratings.


The G120XE comes with an intelligent operator panel (IOP-2), which simplifies setup and commissioning by providing on-screen guidance and a keypad-driven menu. The system is prepared for digitalization and remote monitoring, including a built-in web server and compatibility with SINAMICS Connect 300.

Siemens SIZER configuration software is compatible with the system, making it easier to select and pair the G120X drive system with Siemens’ motors and other components. Communication with advanced SCADA and PLC systems can be achieved through PROFINET or EtherNet/IP.
