Often people have difficulty installing a replacement drive that we send out, and normally it just takes the troubleshooting tips from the manual to get them up and running. However, the manual isn’t always the easiest to find or sort through, so below we’re posting the Siemens Micromaster 420 Troubleshooting section from the manual which should help anyone who is working to get the issues with their drive sorted out.
Siemens Micromaster Frequency Inverter drives are used everywhere in the manufacturing and process industry. Specifically, they are used for outputs ranging from 0.12 kW to 250 kW in the manufacturing industry, and normally in applications ranging from pumps to extruders to winding machine to conveyor systems.
The Micromaster series has a compact design which allows it to work perfectly for cabinet mounting and integration into the design of both stand-alone and series machines. They enable maximum utilization of the available mounting surface, from small outputs to large outputs, with a wide range of supply voltages. This is the reason that the Micromaster drives cover a wide field of applications. The options concept also opens up additional possibilities for customization of each drive. Different communication module allow for use in common network applications, plain text panels simplify operation, and additional base components such as reactors complement the compact solution.
The Micromaster series is made up of three groups that each have unique strengths. The Micromaster 420 drives are universal usage, the Micromaster 430 drives are specialized for pumps and fans, and the Micromaster 440 drives all all around workhorses.
The Siemens Micromaster 430 series is a drive system that was designed to perform a set of specific requirements. There has been a demand for inverter solutions that can be flexibly in simply adapted to solve a broad variety of challenges This type of flexibility is the main characteristic of the Siemens Micromaster 430 series and one of the main reasons for the widespread use of these drives.
The Siemens Micromaster 440 Series was specially designed for applications that require broader functionality and a strong dynamic response to any situation that may come up. The Micromaster 440 drives have an advanced control system that ensures a uniform high drive quality, even during sudden changed in load.
The Siemens Micromaster 420 Series was designed to be the “Universal Inverter for Every Challenge.” It has a compact design with base components such as reactors and filters to help keep the size down, along with versatility that allows for easy start-up in any situation. The Micromaster drives also have various communication interfaces to ensure usability with all of the common network applications.
