Siemens Sinamics DME20 Hub Module: Beyond the User Manual

The Siemens SINAMICS DME20 DRIVE-CLiQ Hub Module is used to implement a star-shaped topology of a DRIVE‑CLiQ line. Two DME20 DRIVE‑CLiQ Hub Modules can be connected in series. Signals from more than one encoder can be collected with one DRIVE-CLiQ Hub Module and forwarded to the Control Unit through a single DRIVE-CLiQ cable. The Siemens SINAMICS DME20 is used to connect direct measuring systems for the feed axes and expansion axes of the S120 Combi.


The DME20(6SL3055-0AA00-6AB0) DRIVE-CLiQ hub module offers the following features:

  • 6 DRIVE-CLiQ sockets for connecting up to 5 more DRIVE-CLiQ modules
  • 1 connection for the power supply module via 24V DC circular supply connector
  • 4 x 0.75 mm pins (pins 1 and 2 are bridged, along with pins 3 and 4)

The SINAMICS DME20 uses the Siemens STARTER software to parameterize and commision drive units. The STARTER commissioning tool can be used for commissioning, testing through a control panel, drive optimization, diagnosing drives, and setting up and running built in safety functions. The tool offers support for various operating wizards, running trace functions to optimize drive controllers, creating and copying data records, loading projects from the programming device to the target device(and vice-versa), along with so much more.
