With Efficient Infeed Technology Unique feature worldwide in the inverter compact class: Regenerative feedback in small, light and low-cost devices. For applications in which a braking resistor is used: e.g. applications with vertical movements, drives for forklift trucks, processing machines with a high moment of inertia, centrifuges, renewable energies (water power, wind power).
Standard Technology Line reactor and braking resistor Required Efficient Infeed Technology Not required

Energy efficiency Inverters save energy through systematic, applicationspecific, closed-loop control of the speed. Additionally, it is possible to feed back energy in generating mode under braking conditions. Moreover, integrated energy-saving functions can reduce electricity supply costs even further. V/f Eco mode: for reducing the motor currents in the partial load range; for energy savings of up to 40% Hibernation mode: inverter is switched on and off automatically in accordance with process requirements DC link topology: reduces the line current through a high active power component

User-friendly design of the SINAMICS G120
Selection of the SINAMICS G120 is reduced to two or three steps thanks to the modular system used.

The optimum power module can be selected intuitively based on the motor power required, the connection voltage and the expected braking cycles. The optimum Control Unit is selected, based on the number of I/Os and any additional functions required such as Safety Integrated or HVAC. The communication options are already integrated and do not have to be additionally ordered or plugged in. Optionally, one of the operator panels described below can be selected for local operation. User-friendly operation: Intelligent and Basic Operator Panels

Thanks to the large text display, menu-based operation and the application wizards, commissioning of the standard drives is easy. Integrated application wizards guide the user interactively through the commissioning process for important applications such as pumps, fans, compressors and conveyor systems.

Commissioning of standard drives is easy with the menudriven dialog on a 2-line display. Simultaneous display of the parameter and parameter value, as well as parameter filtering, means that basic commissioning of a drive can be performed easily and, in most cases, without a printed parameter list. It is either directly mounted on the Control Unit or mounted in the door (dependent on the inverter type)
