SEW Eurodrive has expanded its MOVIMOT range of inverter/geared motor combinations by introducing new MOVIMOT D with continuous operating power up to 4kW.
The MOVIMOT D incorporates SEW Eurodrive’s Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS)-compliant and high efficiency DR motor series and backwards-compatible with previous MOVIMOT versions.
The MOVIMOT D provides industry with a flexible energy-efficient decentralised drive solution.
According to SEW Eurodrive Strategic Marketing and Product Manager, Darren Klonowski, the new MOVIMOT D combines the advantages of decentralised control with the recent energy-efficient motor technology. “Industry now has access to an all-in-one field-mountable MEPS-compliant drive solution,” said Darren Klonowski.
“The MOVIMOT D is perfect for standard variable speed applications, and thanks to its advanced on-board mechanical brake control functionality, the MOVIMOT “D’ can accommodate a range of hoisting applications.” Rated to -30 degrees Celsius ambient temperature, the MOVIMOT D is also ideal for deep-freeze, cold storage and warehousing applications.
An elegant space-saving solution, the MOVIMOT D provides users with a perfectly matched inverter/geared motor combination. “The MOVIMOT D is fitted with a drive identity module (DIM) which stores individual motor parameters on board, eliminating motor commissioning at start up. Most variable speed applications can be easily set through DIP switches and thumbwheels” said Darren Klonowski.
“The integrated monitoring capability of the MOVIMOT D includes functions such as motor protection. This means a separate device is not required to monitor stator winding temperature. This saves space and capital cost.”
Optionally rated up to IP66, the MOVIMOT D features a compact cast-aluminium construction, incorporating an onboard inverter housed in an enclosure not much bigger than a conventional terminal box.
“This saves installation time, as separate inverters don’t have to be individually wired in a separate cabinet,” said Darren Klonowski. “Further installation flexibility can be realised through the terminal box mounting options.
Users have the option of mounting the inverter housing/terminal box in a number of orientations directly on the MOVIMOT unit, or up to 15 metres away through a motor cable connection.” Colour-coded signal terminals further simplify installation.
The MOVIMOT D is compatible with SEW-Eurodrive’s MOVFIT decentralised drive system. Its functionality can be further enhanced through the MOVITOOLS-MotionStudio software, or an optional plug-in key-pad. MOVIMOT D supports RS-485 serial communications and a range of industrial fieldbus protocols, such as, Profibus, DeviceNet and Interbus.
