Siemens Introduces Sinamics V20 Smart Access Web Server Module

Siemens announces the launch of its Sinamics V20 Smart Access web server module, designed to mount directly onto the drive, transforming a mobile device or laptop into a virtual operator panel for drive control. By providing a Wi-Fi hot spot, the wireless connection on this module facilitates setup, programming, commissioning, production monitoring and maintenance on a variety of machines and production equipment. 

A simple, embedded graphical user interface (GUI) enables easy use of the Sinamics V20 in every phase of operation. No separate app is required, nor is a written operator manual needed. This makes operation of the new server module and subsequent drive control highly intuitive and easy-to-learn.

Sinamics V20 Smart access mounts directly onto the V20 drive and transforms a mobile device or laptop into a virtual operator panel.  

 

In use, the Sinamics V20 Smart Access module requires only a few steps to set-up and no installation or download of additional software is needed. The onboard Quick Set-up Wizard provides users a fast and easy commissioning procedure. This enables all of the following: motor data can be entered and checked, connection macros for digital inputs/outputs can be activated, application macros can be selected and activated for pumps, fans, compressors and other devices plus the common and frequently used parameters on the drive can be set for motor start, acceleration, deceleration, min./max. speed, etc.
