Retrofit and Upgrade Services

Lifecycle Services

The aging and wear processes affect the availability of a motor.
This leads us to severe operational challenges like
  • Contamination of the motor
    • For instance: dirt and cooler pollution will reduce cooler efficiency.
    • Increased internal motor temperature will increase insulation system degradation over time.
  • Faults or changes in the power network
    • For instance: voltage peaks or drops can cause undetected but progressing damage to the winding.
    • At the same time voltage drops can cause prolonged start-up times which leads to overheating.*
  • External, mechanical faults
    • such as torque peaks or start-up at increased counter torque.
  • Highly stressing operating conditions
    • such as increased load or very frequent starts.
  • Insufficient compatibility between production requirements and maintenance measures
    • Tight production plans do not allow long downtime periods.
    • This is the reason for delayed maintenance measures.

Our Lifecycle Services for HV motors for our SIMOTICS HV motors is giving you a perfect strategy and solution to prepare your operation covering these challenges and reducing the risk for unplanned downtimes and highest availability of your assets.
By choosing our Lifecycle Services for SIMOTICS HV motors your benefits will quickly reduce operational challenges in your production line.
Benefits at glance:
  • In-depth analysis of the motor condition by experts gives transparency
  • Services from a single source matched to the actual condition of an individual motor
  • Minimization of downtimes during the analysis and implementation phases
  • Ideally, financing only via OPEX
The aging and wear processes affect the availability of your SINAMCS PERFECT HARMONY GH180 drive
Operational challenges
  • Faults or changes in the power network such as voltage peaks without using an appropriate overvoltage protection
  • High currents and mechanical/electrical stress can occur when switching electrical equipment
  • Highly stressing operating conditions such as increased temperature
  • Conflict between production requirements and maintenance measures
  • Delayed reactions to alerts and warnings
  • Missing information about the topology of the power supply and thus deviations to the norms
Possible consequences:
Without any maintenance there is a regular aging and wear where you risk and could cause severe damage
  • for the complete drive:
    Increased risk of a total breakdown of the drive and thus unexpected downtimes
  • for transformers:
    Increased risk of failures results in long downtimes in case the transformer needs to be replaced
  • for cooling hoses of a water-cooled drive:
    Increased risk of leakages (especially on hoses which are older than 8-10 years)
