MICROMASTER Standard v/hz and Vector Drives

Technical information to assist in migrating from MICROMASTER to SINAMICS drives

simogear gear motor adapters

For over 25 years the MICROMASTER family of drives has addressed applications in the power range extending from 0.16 to 350 HP (0.12 kW to 250 kW). From simple applications with v/hz control to efficient pump and fan control to complex applications with closed-loop vector control and encoder feedback, MICROMASTER standard drives have offered a robust and time-tested solution.
