Integrated Drive Systems:
Shift your perspective – there's more to it

Siemens Integrated Drive Systems are the world‘s first true one-stop solution for entire drive trains. They enable noticeably shorter time to market and shorter time to profit. Integrating seamlessly in any drive train, any automation environment, and even in the entire lifecycle, Siemens Integrated Drive Systems turn common drive components into drive systems and make mere assets become drivers of success. Siemens Integrated Drive Systems are guaranteed to shift your perspective on drive systems.

Threefold integration creates value added

Horizontal integration

Integrated drive portfolio: The core elements of a fully integrated drive port­folio are frequency converters, motors, couplings, and gear units. At Siemens, they‘re all available from a single source. Perfectly integrated, perfectly interacting. For all power and performance classes. As standard solutions or fully customized. No other player in the market can offer a comparable portfolio. Moreover, all Siemens drive components are per­fectly matched, so they are optimally

You can boost the availability of your application or plant to up to 98%

Vertical integration

Vertical integration

Thanks to vertical integration, the whole drive train is seamlessly integrated in the entire automation
environment – an important prerequisite for production with maximal value added. Integrated Drive Systems are part of TIA, which means that they are perfectly embedded into the system architecture of the entire industrial production process. This enables optimal processes through
maximum communication and control.

With TIA Portal you can cut your engineering time by up to 30%

Lifecycle integration

Lifecycle integration

Lifecycle integration adds the factor of time: Software and service are available for the entire lifecycle of an Integrated Drive System. That way, important optimization potential for maximum productivity, increased efficiency, and highest availability can be leveraged throughout the lifecycle – from planning, design, and engineering to operation, maintenance, and all the way to modernization.

With Integrated Drive Systems, assets become important success factors. They ensure shorter time to market, a maximum of productivity and efficiency in operation, and shorter time to profit.

With Integrated Drive Systems you can reduce your maintenance costs by up to 15%
