GaN Systems announced that Siemens is integrating part of its Simatic Micro-Drive product line with GaN Systems power semiconductors. With the integration of GaN Systems power transistors, this Siemens product line features industry-leading standards and benefiting customers by power density, efficiency and robustness.
Recently, Siemens entered the low voltage drive market with the creation of their new Simatic Micro-Drive safety and extra-low voltage family. The integrated Simatic Micro-Drive system comes in two different housing sizes for motor outputs of between 100 and 1000 watts. The fundamental building block is the GaN power transistors made by GaN Systems. This 4-quadrant drive system can be either used with the integrated brake chopper on a power supply or directly in battery operation.
The servo drive system is suited to a wide range of diverse applications in moving, processing and positioning such as conveyor systems and stacker cranes, positioning of individual or multiple coordinated axes, shuttles for storage and retrieval machines or warehousing systems, automatic guided vehicles (AGVs) and medical technology.
