The new Sinamics G110M motor-integrated drive for Simogear gear motors offers flexible control, integrated safety, simple installation and a space-saving design. With a high degree of protection—up to IP66—it provides the perfect solution to most material handling-related challenges including conveyors, warehousing, logistics, baggage and cargo handling, post and parcel shipping, and the automotive industry.

Simogear gear motors offer high torque density, low noise and high efficiency—and now with Sinamics G110M, it’s easier than ever to integrate gear motors into a variety of control architectures. Plug connections for onboard I/O ensure fast installation, while optional power connectors deliver even more time-savings. The system is delivered pre-configured, and the drive excels with its simple yet comprehensive diagnostic features. Options such as internal braking resistors and motor brakes—operational simultaneously—and integrated features such as "quick stop" and the limit switch function make the system ideal for conveyor applications.

For applications requiring safety technology, the Sinamics G110M offers integrated safety functions such as "safe torque off" (STO), which can be activated via a fail-safe input or via Profisafe without needing additional safety monitoring components.

Sinamics G110M comes with integral USS/Modbus RTU, Profibus, and Profinet/EtherNet/IP communication profiles.
