E.B. Horsman & Son is the exclusive distributor for the complete Siemens Drive-Train portfolio, from variable frequency drives to induction and synchronous/permanent magnet motors, in British Columbia. Our technical group assists with sizing and selecting the right components for your motion-control needs, and also lends application support with start-up and troubleshooting.

Siemens VFD, Servo Drives and Electric Motors designed to work together, proven technology & new simpler interfaces for quicker startup times

SINAMICS Variable Frequency Drives (VFD)

Siemens has the variable frequency drives to address the complete power conversion spectrum – the entire “drive train” – maximizing energy efficiency and productivity improvements. Integrated products include variable frequency low voltage motor drives (electric inverters), medium voltage drives, and DC drives.

Pumps, fans, compressors, conveyor belts, mixers, mills or extruders: No matter what application, SINAMICS Standard Performance Frequency Converters are perfectly adapted to basic to mid-level control dynamics requirements. The converters are based on the same platform as all other members of this innovative drives family. Users benefit from a standardized and user-friendly operating concept without requiring additional engineering tools.


SINAMICS G120 is a modular, space-saving, and rugged vector drive. Irrespective of whether pumping, compressing, moving or processing: SINAMICS G120 is the universal drive to address the widest range of requirements.

Recommended for these applications:

  • Pumping/ventilating/compressing
  • Moving
  • Processing


The compact SINAMICS V20 is the frequency converter for simple motion sequences. It is characterized by its short commissioning times, easy handling, and energy-saving functions

Recommended for these applications:

  • Pumping/ventilating/compressing
  • Moving
  • Processing

SINAMICS servo drives

SINAMICS servo drives have been designed for applications where motion control functions must be quickly and precisely controlled. From simple position moves to high speed coordinated multi-axis systems including kinematics, Siemens offers the exact fit across the largest product spectrum. Other features that set SINAMICS servo drives apart include innovative drive based safety technology, consistent integrated engineering tools, and the high level of integration with SIMATIC controllers and Siemens TIA Portal, allowing drag and drop configuration and leading-edge simulation capabilities

SINAMICS S120 high performance modular drive system

With a wide range of coordinated components and functions in a complete drives package, SINAMICS S120 modular drives are designed for motion control and a spectrum of high-performance drive applications in mechanical and systems engineering. SINAMICS S120 drives include high-performance single drives and coordinated drives (multiple-axis applications) with vector or servo functionalities that allow implementation of customized high performance drive solutions for the ultimate in flexibility and increased productivity.

SINAMICS S210 / SIMOTICS S-1FK2 servo drive system

The SINAMICS S210 servo drive system offers 5 power classes ranging from 50 to 750 watts (0.07 to 1 Hp). The drive features integrated safety functions and streamlined engineering. Connected to the higher-level PLC over PROFINET industrial Ethernet, the drive allows simpler commissioning using a web server as well as one-button tuning. Working in concert with SIMOTICS S-1FK2 servo motors, SINAMICS S210 allows for highly dynamic movement of minimal loads as well as ultra-precise movement of medium and higher loads.
