Siemens announces the release of its next generation of the Sinamics Perfect Harmony GH180 Medium Voltage Drive. The new generation drive, manufactured in the U.S. in Pennsylvania, features an innovative PCB based power cell with reduced part count by more than 70% on previous design increasing reliability and making it the most compact medium voltage drive in the market.  

The new Sinamics Perfect Harmony GH180 drive provides customers with a highly efficient solution for low power applications. The new Sinamics Perfect Harmony GH180’s power cell design allows for less maintenance and greater availability. And when combined with up to 90% savings on cable costs as well as substantial savings on conduit, the result is a significantly lower cost of ownership over the drive’s lifecycle. No other drive offers the savings and reliability that the Sinamics Perfect Harmony GH180 does, making it the ideal solution for a wide range of applications. 

This next generation drive offers a simplified system, with enhanced serviceability and reduced commissioning. The Sinamics Perfect Harmony GH180 drives are IEEE 519 compliant and compatible with any motor type including induction, synchronous, permanent magnet, and round rotor motors. The drive also supports 480V or 600V input voltages up to 400A - making this drive ideal for new or retrofit applications of existing motors.

Customers can upgrade to this new drive without giving up critical space.  The new drive offers incredible flexibility to suit virtually any application with fast lead times to meet even the most demanding schedule. The new Sinamics Perfect Harmony GH180 offers a three year pay back on fan and pump applications and up to 4% improved efficiency on low power applications when compared to high-low-high solutions.

The Sinamics Perfect Harmony drive offers up to 96.5% energy efficiency through the entire speed range. 

Siemens Process Industries and Drives helps its customers increase productivity, safety, reliability, efficiency and time-to-market for plants and processes with innovative, integrated technology across the entire lifecycle.
