Sinamics GM 150

Product Details

Sinamics GM 150

Our SINAMICS GM150 (IGBT/IGCT) variable speed drive brings simplicity into the medium voltage environment. This starts with standardized engineering using the engineering tool SIZER WEB ENGINEERING followed by the uncomplicated integration into the plant or system. This is continued with fast and user-friendly commissioning using STARTER and easy operator control.

And in operation, SINAMICS GM150 distinguishes itself thanks to its ruggedness and service friendliness. SINAMICS GM150 is designed as a universal and simple drive converter for single‑motor applications with variable and constant torque characteristic but without regenerative feedback.

SINAMICS GM150 can be optimally combined with converter motors from Siemens. In this case sine‑wave filters are not required, resulting in a very competitive, compact and efficient drive solution. With the optional sine‑wave filter the converter offers the best prerequisites for operation of standard motors and is thus optimally suited for retrofit of fixed‑speed drives to variable‑speed drives in existing installations. The SINAMICS GM150 drive converters offer an economical drive solution, which can be adapted to specific customer needs with a wide range of optionally available components and accessories.


  • Easy plant integration due to the compact design and highly flexible configuration
  • Simple operator control with the user-friendly operator panel
  • Smooth and reliable operation due to the integrated maintenance functions: the converter signals automatically and well in advance when maintenance is required and/or components need to be exchanged
  • High ruggedness and reliability thanks to the use of HV-IGBT/IGCT technology and fuseless design, combined with intelligent response to external disturbances
  • Hassle-free integration into higher-level automation systems due to PROFIBUS interface supplied as standard and analog and digital interfaces
  • High degree of service-friendliness due to the innovative power section design, e.g. plug-in power cards and excellent accessibility of all components only applicable to the HV-IGBT technology



  • Moving: Belt conveyors, ship’s drives
  • Processing: Mills, mixers, kneaders, crushers, agitators, rotary furnaces, extruders
