Siemens has worked with test lab UL Solutions for the first certification of an industrial product in the US after parts of the required tests were conducted through digital twin simulation.

The digital twin of the Siemens SINAMICS G220 motor controller was verified and validated with physical testing at UL, demonstrating the accuracy of the accuracy and reliability of modern simulation tools.

This is a key step for Siemens where digital twin technology streamlines product development, boosting innovation, safety and reduces development time and part of the company’s push in to the industrial metaverse.

Traditionally, product certification demanded exhaustive physical tests, often subjecting a single product to a battery of assessments. Simulation based on the digital twin is the answer to the special challenge and cost factor of test units and certified laboratories when high power electronics components are involved.

The collaboration of Siemens and UL shows that a product may not need to undergo every test physically; instead, the process can use digital twin technology. Comprehensive digital twins are becoming the cornerstone for not just helping to meet compliance requirements, but also driving innovation at high speed without compromising safety, performance or quality as well as reducing test costs.

“Siemens’ digital twin technology is rewriting the rules of innovation. This collaborative effort with UL Solutions is a testament to our dedication to a future in which innovation knows no bounds. It invites industries and innovators alike to explore the limitless possibilities that comprehensive digital twins offer for shaping the future of product development,” said Cedrik Neike, CEO of the Digital Industries business and Managing Board Member at Siemens

“UL Solutions has always been at the forefront of advancing safety science. Our collaboration with Siemens in this transformative journey represents a significant shift in the certification paradigm,” Jennifer Scanlon, President and CEO of UL Solutions points out. “The certification process relies on physical testing. Now, digital simulations integrated with traditional methodologies can redefine how our customers approach testing and certification and open new avenues for precision and efficiency. UL Solutions is proud to be part of this revolutionary leap.”;
