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
The SINAMICS G130 components are designed for installation in enclosures, which can
take the form of cabinet units or control boxes made of steel that provide protection against
shock and other environmental influences. These are also integrated in the EMC concept.
Danger to life if the fundamental safety instructions and remaining risks are not carefully
The non-observance of the fundamental safety instructions and residual risks stated in
Chapter 1 can result in accidents with severe injuries or death.
• Adhere to the fundamental safety instructions.
• When assessing the risk, take into account residual risks.
Danger of injury caused by foreign objects in the device
Parts (e.g.: drilling chips, end sleeves) falling into the device can cause short-circuits and
damage the insulation. This can lead to serious injuries (arcing, bangs, pieces flying out of
• Only perform installation and other work when the devices are current-free.
• Cover the ventilation slots during the installation of the cabinet and remove the cover
Limitation of overvoltages
On systems with a grounded phase conductor and a line voltage >600 VAC, line-side
components should be installed to limit overvoltages to overvoltage category II in
accordance with IEC 61800-5-1.
