SIMOTICS SD next generation – performance meets digitalization

Our rugged Severe Duty Motors have always excelled with espeically high reliability and powerful performance, even in the most challenging applications. Discover the entire range of our low-voltage motor program that is truly unique on today's market – and is setting entirely new standards.


The new generation of SIMOTICS SD low-voltage motors is not only exceedingly compact, efficient and reliable, but also offers the decisive advantage of being ready for digitalization. This new generation of motors enables you to optimize your processes because the units become part of your digital enterprise. Despite their smaller cover size, the new design offers higher power density. With the three variants SIMOTICS SD, SIMOTICS SD Add and SIMOTICS SD Pro, you have an outstanding range of low-voltage motors at your disposal that is truly unique in today's market.

In addition to their exceptionally high reliability, what's particularly convincing about the SIMOTICS SD series motors is their high starting and breakaway torques. And with SIMOTICS CONNECT – a sensor box mounted on the motor – these motors are IQ-ready. Integrated sensors measure important operating parameters such as the mechanical condition, temperature, and operating condition, and forward these data via WLAN to the digital platform SIDRIVE IQ for further analysis.


With their low starting currents and global certificates, the SIMOTICS SD Add variant can be deployed in all major global regions and markets. What's more, this characteristic of low starting currents not only meets industry-specific requirements and specifications of the process industry, but also helps improve operational quality.
The motors of our third variant are characterized by their outstanding flexibility and scalability. SIMOTICS SD Pro provides you with motors that you can use anywhere in the world directly on the grid or on a converter up to 690 V, in any system or plant configuration you wish. One particular highlight of our SIMOTICS SD Pro variant is unique combination of important global certificates, multi-voltage capability, and stable efficiency levels based on IE3, regardless of whether the network frequency is 50 Hz or 60 Hz.
