Easy does it - SINAMICS V20 - The cost-effective, reliable and easy-to-use drive for basic applications

SINAMICS V20 Standard Drive

Just because it's Easy...

As more and more applications in plant and machinery construction require custom solutions to automate simple motion sequences with minimal requirements, Siemens answers with the compact SINAMICS V20 drive.

  • Easy to Install

  • Easy to Use

  • Easy to Save Money

... doesn't mean it's not Powerful.

The SINAMICS V20 is surprisingly versatile, features quick commissioning times, robustness, and energy efficiency. With four frame sizes, it covers a power range extending from 0.16 to 20 HP.

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.
