Safety information General safety instructions DANGER Danger to life due to live parts and other energy sources Death or serious injury can result when live parts are touched. • Only work on electrical equipment if you are appropriately qualified. • Always observe the country-specific safety rules for all work. Generally, six steps apply when establishing safety: 1.
Safety information 1.1 General safety instructions WARNING Danger to life when live parts are touched on damaged devices Improper handling of devices can cause damage. For damaged devices, hazardous voltages can be present at the enclosure or at exposed components; if touched, this can result in death or severe injury. •...
Safety information 1.1 General safety instructions WARNING Danger to life due to fire spreading if the housing is inadequate Fire and smoke can cause severe injury or material damage. • Install devices without a protective housing in a metal control cabinet (or protect the device by another equivalent measure) in such a way that contact with fire is prevented.
Safety information 1.1 General safety instructions WARNING Danger of an accident occurring due to missing or illegible warning labels Missing or illegible warning labels can result in accidents involving death or serious injury. • Check that the warning labels are complete based on the documentation. •...
Safety information 1.2 Safety instructions for electromagnetic fields (EMF) Safety instructions for electromagnetic fields (EMF) WARNING Danger to life from electromagnetic fields Electromagnetic fields (EMF) are generated by the operation of electrical power equipment such as transformers, converters or motors. People with pacemakers or implants are at a special risk in the immediate vicinity of these devices/systems.
Safety information 1.3 Handling electrostatic sensitive devices (ESD) Handling electrostatic sensitive devices (ESD) Electrostatic sensitive devices (ESD) are individual components, integrated circuits, modules or devices that may be damaged by either electric fields or electrostatic discharge. NOTICE Damage through electric fields or electrostatic discharge Electric fields or electrostatic discharge can cause malfunctions through damaged individual components, integrated circuits, modules or devices.
Siemens recommends strongly that you regularly check for product updates. For the secure operation of Siemens products and solutions, it is necessary to take suitable preventive action (e.g. cell protection concept) and integrate each component into a holistic, state-of-the-art industrial security concept.
Safety information 1.5 Residual risks of power drive systems Residual risks of power drive systems When assessing the machine or system-related risk in accordance with the respective local regulations (e.g. EC Machinery Directive), the machine manufacturer or system installer must take into account the following residual risks emanating from the control and drive components of a drive system: 1.
General The modular concept of SINAMICS G130 makes it impossible to describe each individual combination. This section instead aims to provide some basic information and general rules on the basis of which special device combinations can be constructed and to ensure electromagnetic compatibility.
General 2.2 Directives Note Protection against the spread of fire The converter may be operated only in closed housings or in higher-level control cabinets with protective covers that are closed, and when all of the protective devices are used. Converters of the Open Type/IP20 degree of protection must be installed in a metal control cabinet or protected by another equivalent measure such that fire cannot spread and emissions outside of the control cabinet are prevented.
General 2.3 Standards Standards Note The standards listed in the table below are non-binding and do not in any way claim to be complete. The standards listed do not represent a guaranteed property of the product. Only the statements made in the Declaration of Conformity shall be deemed binding.

Basic information about EMC Introduction to EMC What is meant by EMC? Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) describes the capability of an electrical device to function satisfactorily in an electromagnetic environment without itself causing interference unacceptable for other devices in the environment. EMC therefore represents a quality feature for the ●...
Basic information about EMC 3.1 Introduction to EMC Noise emissions Product standard EN 61800–3 outlines the EMC requirements for variable-speed drive systems. It specifies requirements for converters with operating voltages of less than 1000 V. Different environments and categories are defined depending on where the drive system is installed.
Basic information about EMC 3.1 Introduction to EMC Table 3- 2 Definition of categories C1 to C4 Definition of categories C1 to C4 Category C1 Rated voltage <1000 V; unrestricted use in the first environment. Category C2 Rated voltage for stationary drive systems <1000 V; for use in the second environment.

NOTICE Device failure caused by overloading of devices and components If the guidelines for installing SINAMICS G130 equipment are not observed, this can significantly reduce the service life of the components and result in premature device and component failure.
5.2 Ventilation Ventilation The SINAMICS G130 devices are forced-ventilated by means of integrated fans. To ensure an adequate air supply, suitable openings for the inlet air (e.g. ventilation slots in the cabinet door) and discharged air (e.g. by means of a hood) must be provided.

Cabinet air conditioning 5.2 Ventilation Figure 5-2 Air guidance for Power Module, frame size HX, JX Devices must not be operated in an "air short-circuit", since this can damage equipment or cause it to fail. The fan suction causes negative pressure to build up at the ventilation openings in the cabinet doors.
Cabinet air conditioning 5.2 Ventilation NOTICE Device failure due to air short-circuit in the control cabinet Unsuitable air guidance can cause an air short-circuit, which can result in overheating in the control cabinet and device failure. • Install suitable barriers in the control cabinet in order to prevent an air short-circuit from occurring.
Cabinet air conditioning 5.2 Ventilation The opening cross-sections specified in the table refer in each case to one device. If more than one device is installed in a cabinet, the opening cross-section increases accordingly. If the required openings cannot be made in the cabinet, the devices must be distributed across several cabinets, which are separated from each other by means of partitions.
