Pictorial Glossary
The pictorial glossary includes definitions and illustrations formany terms that are frequently used in the electrical industry.Terms that are underlined and italicized are included in theglossary as a separate definition.
AC Drive
An electronic device used to control the speed of an
AC motor 
.Also called a
variable frequency drive 
and an
inverter 
. The term
variable speed drive 
applies to both
AC Drives 
and
DC Drives 
.

SINAMICS G110 AC Drives
AC Motor
A
motor 
that uses
alternating current 
to convert electricalenergy into mechanical energy. Many AC motors used inindustrial applications are three-phase induction motors.
Alternating Current (AC)
Current 
that periodically reverses direction.
Maximum Currentin Positive DirectionMaximum Currentin Negative Direction
 
Ambient Temperature
The temperature of the medium (air, water, etc.) surrounding adevice.
American National
A nongovernmental organization that promotes and coordinates
Standards Institute (ANSI)
the development of standards and accredits the procedures ofother organizations that develop standards.
American Wire Gauge
A common method of specifying wire size (cross-sectional
(AWG)
area). Larger numbers represent smaller wires. After AWG No., the largest sizes are AWG No. 0, AWG No. 00, AWG No. 000,and AWG 0000. AWG No. 0 is called one-aught, AWG No. 00 iscalled two-aught, etc.
Ammeter
A meter designed to measure
current 
.
Ampacity
The continuous
current 
rating in
amperes 
for a conductor.
Ampere, Amp
The basic unit for
current 
. An ampere, also called an amp, isequal to a current of 
Coulomb 
per second. The symbol forampere is “A.
Amplitude
The total variation of a waveform. Amplitude can be expressedas a peak value, peak-to-peak value, or
effective value 
.
Peak ValueTimePeak ValuePeak-to-Peak Value0
+-
Analog
A value that is continuously variable. Also used to describecircuits that work with analog signals.
Analog Input
An input to a system that can continuously vary over a range of
current 
or
voltage 
such as 4 to 0 milliamps or 0 to 0 volts.
Load Cell
Sensor Transmitter 
Controller  Analog Input
Common Analog Values0 to 10 VDC4 to 20 mA
