Even smaller, and better

As the smallest drive in the SINAMICS V20 family, the new frame sizes AA and AB save more than 30% in mounting space compared to the existing FSA. Both have the same footprint, but different heatsink depths. There are several additional features like an optional integrated class B filter allowing the V20 to be applied in a more demanding environment such as in residential or commercial buildings.
