Siemens’ Sinamics V20 Smart Access web server module is designed to mount directly onto the drive, transforming a mobile device or laptop into a virtual operator panel for drive control. By providing a wi-fi hot spot, the wireless connection on this module facilitates setup, programming, commissioning, production monitoring and maintenance on a variety of machines and production equipment. An embedded graphical user interface (GUI) enables easy use of the Sinamics V20 in every phase of operation. No separate app is required, nor is a written operator manual needed, making operation of this new server module and subsequent drive control highly intuitive and easy-to-learn.  

Smart Access provides convenient access to the Sinamics V20, up to 100 m away, even when the drive is located in difficult-to-access installations. The web server module offers full flexibility with both iOS and Android operating systems along with web browsers such as Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer and others. A built-in, multi-color LED provides quick communication status readout. Security features enable limit/restrict operator access and control functionality.
