SEW EURODRIVE has added further components for decentralized installation to its MOVI C® modular automation system. The new MOVI C® modular automation system gives SEW EURODRIVE customers optimum access to a wide range of drive electronics components – from application inverters to modular servo inverters.
MOVIMOT® advanced is an all-rounder that complements our current MOVI-C® products in terms of functionality and consistency and increases the range of possible applications for our decentralized drive technology, which has been proving its worth for decades. By integrating an energy-efficient asynchronous motor from the DRN.. range with the new decentralized inverter from the MOVI-C® modular automation system, the decentralized drive unit achieves maximum system efficiency IES2 to IEC 61800-9-2.
The integrated digital interface ensures quick, easy and convenient startup, even with the widest range of gearmotor options. Encoder or sensor signals can be evaluated without additional installation work. MOVIMOT® advanced can be combined with all standard gear units in series 7 and 9 for versatile and flexible use. Just as with other MOVI-C® products, integration into various automation topologies is achieved using any standard means of communication.
We have based the further development of our decentralized product portfolio on our MOVI-C® modular automation system. MOVIMOT® flexible enables the decentralized inverter to be installed close to the motor in your system. With MOVIMOT® flexible, it’s up to users whether they opt for a synchronous or asynchronous motor. MOVIMOT® flexible is available in two versions. Unlike the MMF1., the MMF3. version can be fitted with additional options such as a load disconnector (with or without integrated line protection), an M12 engineering interface or with preparation for mounting an operator panel. A key switch with feedback contact can also be integrated.
The current configuration of the decentralized inverter (size 1) can supply nominal output currents of 2.0, 2.5 and 3.2 A as well as 4.0 and 5.5 A for 0.55 to 3.0 kW performance classes (depending on motor type). Additional performance classes are in the pipeline for the end of 2021. Digital motor integration means users need just one single cable to connect MOVIMOT® flexible to the drive. The intelligent, digital connection using a standardized hybrid cable makes it possible to supply power and also transmit data between the decentralized inverter and motor. As long as the motor is equipped with the MOVILINK® DDI digital data interface, electronic nameplate information and brake/diagnostic data are transmitted directly to the inverter for easy startup.
MOVIMOT® performance is our specialist for precision and flexibility that more than fulfills the requirements of IE5, the highest possible energy efficiency rating for a motor to IEC TS 60034-30-2. It can easily be combined with standard drives and brakes. Encoder or sensor signals can be evaluated without additional installation work. MOVIMOT® performance can be combined with all standard gear units in series 7 and 9 for versatile and flexible use. The drive unit can also be combined with our servo gear units. Just as with other MOVI-C® products, integration into various automation topologies is achieved using any standard means of communication. The optional DynaStop® electrodynamic deceleration function can in many cases replace a mechanical brake, thus cutting costs and minimizing wear.
The MOVIGEAR® classic drive unit combines a gear unit and motor in a single housing and can be combined intelligently with an inverter installed close to the motor or in the control cabinet. This ensures an ideal level of flexibility for users – specifically to suit their system situation:
- Integrated drive unit consisting of a permanent magnet synchronous motor and a gear unit
- 0.4 to 3.0 kW available in three gear unit sizes
- Motor energy efficiency class IE5 to IEC TS 60034-30-2
The matching inverters are part of the MOVI-C® modular automation system. The MOVIGEAR® classic drive unit can be connected to the new MOVITRAC® advanced standard inverter, the new MOVIMOT® flexible decentralized inverter and the MOVIDRIVE® modular, MOVIDRIVE® system or MOVIDRIVE® technology application inverters. MOVIGEAR® classic is also available in the new design for use in wet areas /WA. This version is particularly suitable for applications in areas that are subject to regular cleaning or wet lubrication and sensitive areas such as those in the food and beverage industries.
MOVIGEAR® performance is a highly integrated drive that complements the existing products in terms of functions and consistency and extends the range of possible applications for our decentralized drive technology, which has been proving its worth for decades. Thanks to its digital interface, no additional installation is required for the transfer of the electronic nameplate and various sensor signals between the motor and the inverter.
Communication takes place from a higher-level controller via fieldbus interfaces, such as PROFINET IO, EtherNet/IPTM and Modbus TCP, as well as integrated, digital inputs and outputs. This makes MOVIGEAR® performance the perfect choice for dynamic conveyor applications. The new drive unit stands out with its compact design and high overload capacity. By more than meeting the requirements for the highest motor energy efficiency class IE5 to IEC TS 60034-30-2 and the maximum system efficiency to IEC 61800-9-2, the fan-free MOVIGEAR® performance surpasses all conventional solutions to date. The wet-area design /WA is in the pipeline.
In addition to the drives with the MOVI-C® FIELD CONTROLLER standard and advanced, SEW EURODRIVE also offers motion controllers suitable for specific applications. The MOVI-C® FIELD CONTROLLER can be operated on virtually all standard industrial fieldbus systems (PROFINET, EtherNet/IPTM, Modbus TCP). As an EtherCAT®/SBusPLUS master, the MOVI-C® FIELD CONTROLLER controls drive axes in the «DSI» communication variant and other EtherCAT® stations. Due to the housing with a high degree of protection, the controller can be flexibly used in the field – without needing an additional control cabinet. If hybrid cables are used, it is furthermore possible to minimize wiring work of the subordinate drive axes, thus reducing costs. Up to 16 drive axes can be controlled and, thanks to optimized startup and diagnostics, the level of engineering work required is reduced.
