Siemens: SINAMICS G220 – Innovation in Every Detail for All Industries

April 17, 2024

SINAMICS G220 is designed to meet current and future challenges in virtually every industry. Incorporating improved hardware and software, SINAMICS G220 takes digital drive technology to a new level, making applications more efficient, secure and future-proof.

Overview of Strengths – SINAMICS G220

The multi-purpose drive

Developed for a broad variety of industries and needs, SINAMICS G220 is able to fulfill specific requirements with flexible hardware and software options.


  • Increase transparency by exchanging high frequency data between the drive and Industrial Edge using the optional IIoT module
  • Improved application performance via SINAMICS software options like Safety Extended and Motor Control Extended

The low-harmonics drive – coming soon

Featuring an integrated Active Infeed Unit, SINAMICS G220 Clean Power reduces line harmonics. The total harmonic distortion is typically kept below 5%.


  • Reduce system losses in cables and transformers, permitting a utilization rate of up to 100%
  • Protect the main connection from harmonics
  • Extend the lifespan of motors and equipment by stabilizing the output voltage


  • Optimize energy consumption with ultimate Clean Power technology in low harmonics (THDi < 5%) and enhanced high-efficiency motor control
  • Engineering tools like SINAMICS Startdrive and the integrated web server shorten selection and commissioning time
  • The drive system’s integration into TIA Portal allows optimized workflows and increased productivity

Safe & secure

  • Protect access to automation processes with Security Integrated functions, User Management & Access Control
  • Safety Integrated functions up to SIL 3 (Safety Integrated Level), PL e (Performance Level) and Category 4 according to IEC 62061 and ISO 13849-1 standards ensure that machines comply with the highest safety requirements
  • S2 System redundancy, UL Type 12 / IP55 protection and Class 3C3 coating guarantee the availability of your system, even in harsh environments
  • An innovative UL 61800-5-1 compliant design with up to 100kA SCCR


  • Digital twin technology allows design, commissioning and optimizing applications, accelerating time-to-market
  • Cloud and Edge monitoring and diagnostics boost system reliability
  • Hardware and software options as well as a seamless system portfolio maximize flexibility to meet market needs
