Motor Management and Control Devices

For 30 years now, SIMOCODE pro has been controlling and monitoring low-voltage, constant-speed motors all over the world. Wherever motors keep things running in the process industry, SIMOCODE is there. Many thousands of times over.

Two functionally graded device series form the core of the multifunctional SIMOCODE pro motor management system: General Performance and High Performance. The devices in both series incorporate all essential motor protection, monitoring and control functions.

Now even more powerful thanks to connection to the Cloud, SIMOCODE pro transfers data to the cloud where it can be accessed from any location, making maintenance easier than ever. As the only motor manager with safety integrated up to SIL 3, SIMOCODE pro General Performance is your entry into modern motor management and addresses standard motor applications.

Powerful solutions for all areas of the process industry

Wherever motors keep things running in the process industries, SIMOCODE is there at the technological forefront. Market requirements are increasing. Solutions that provide greater transparency of measured data, reliable residual current monitoring, more flexible applications, space requirements, and system redundancy are in high demand.

These are just some of the industries where you may find SIMOCODE:

Chemical industry: Oil and gas

Pump dry-run monitoring to prevent the formation of ignitable mixtures (ignition protection level 1 according to ATEX).

Mining and steel industry

Ground-fault detection: for example, to record any degradation of insulation, undervoltage detection, and parameterisable restart following voltage recovery.

Paper industry

Growing demand for plant energy management.

Water industry

Detection of limit violations such as excess current or capacity. 

Ease of planning, high configuration reliability, rapid commissioning as well as parameterisation, diagnostics, and maintenance-relevant monitoring functions: All these are characteristics of convenient engineering with SIMOCODE ES, the central software for configuration, commissioning, operation, and diagnostics of SIMOCODE pro devices. Integrated in the uniform engineering framework of the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal), SIMOCODE ES represents the efficient and intuitive solution for all automation tasks.

 As the national distributor partner of Siemens products in Australia, APS Industrial are proud to provide local access to this leading technology for industry.
