SEW-Eurodrive , has released an updated version of its interactive electronic product catalogue, EKAT. The PC application has been revised to include the latest SEW-Eurodrive technologies and additional geared motor product information.
The software is provided free of charge. It lists the whole product range, facilitates selection of products, gives technical details and dimension drawings of the products, and even allows drive comparisons between different types of units.
EKAT requires basic inputs such as power, torque, speed, physical configuration and service factor (which is relative to the operational duty-cycle of the unit). From these parameters it produces a list of suitable SEW-Eurodrive geared motors, complete with technical and dimensional specifications.
EKAT can help customers produce two-dimensional (dxf, dwg) or three-dimensional (sat, step) CAD-compatible files via the SEW-Eurodrive website, www.driveCAD.com.
The modular design approach means that every drive is customised. Millions of configurations are possible.
