Simple, Reliable, System-Compliant Motor Cable Choices Designed for Motion Control

Motion-Connect Cables

Utilizing the most advanced connection technology, Siemens MOTION-CONNECT advanced motor cable solutions are industry-preferred for machine tools, production machines, and general motion control applications. Both UL-CSA and VDE certified the power and signal cables have been specifically designed for servo, industion, and direct-drive motors for motion control applications and system tested with Siemens Motion Controllers and Drives: SINAMICS, SIMODRIVE, and MASTERDRIVES drives, SIMOTION motion controllers, SINUMERIK CNC, and SIMATIC automation.

SIMOTICS Motor Cable Technology - Key Benefits

  • Secure System Performance
    The cutting-edge performance of your motion control system is ensured by Siemens system-tested MOTION-CONNECT cables. All cables are shielded, ensuring the highest EMC safety standards

  • Ease of Use
    Each motor cable is provided preconfigured and ready to use. The newly developed SPEED CONNECT technology for power connectors provides a vibration-secure connection with a simple 45-degree rotation of the lock

  • Flexibility
    MOTION-CONNECT cables are available cut to length in 0.1 m increments, allowing preconfigured cables to be adapted precisely to fit the application. The three different MOTION-CONNECT cable options - 500, 700 and 800 – provide added flexibility in performance capability.

SPEED CONNECT Motor Cable Standard

Siemens introduces a new quick release mechanism that protects against vibration shakeout on its Motion-Connect® line of power cables. Motion-Connect cables are offered as standard on all Siemens motion control systems. The Speed Connect release makes installation and changeover, even in very restricted space applications, fast and easy. No tools required; just a one-quarter turn locks or unlocks the bayonet-style connectors. A wide range of cabling with the new Speed Connect quick release mechanism is available.

Highlights

  • Reduced installation and service costs as a result of the quick release mechanism

  • Fail-proof installation thanks to the defined locked position

  • Plug connector is locked by turning approx. 1/4 clockwise

  • Plug connector is released by turning approx. 1/4 turns in the counter-clockwise direction
