SEW-Eurodrive, a global drive solutions group, plans to unveil the complete MOVITRAC LT family of general-purpose frequency inverters at the 2006 Manufacturing Technology InFocus exhibition in Melbourne. Coupled with SEW-Eurodrive’s geared motor range, the MOVITRAC LT family offers Australian industry a powerful and affordable end-to-end drive solution.
A feature of the exhibit will be the recent addition to the MOVITRAC LT family: the all-new MOVITRAC LTP series, which extends the MOVITRAC LT’s reach of up to 160 kW. The MOVITRAC LTP series features a high-speed infrared interface for wireless commissioning and parameterisation.
The MOVITRAC LT family provides a combination of inverter price, performance and range. Designed to support simple ‘every day’ variable speed drive applications, the general-purpose inverter family spans a power range of 0.37 kW to 160 kW, and accommodates input powers of both 230V single-phase and 415V three-phase.
The MOVITRAC LT family has an innovative ‘bookshelf’ design, and is fast and easy to set up. The MOVITRAC LT features 14 standard configuration parameters that streamline commissioning. In addition, the drive’s easy mechanical and electrical installation ensures that basic drive applications can be ‘up and running’ in minutes.
The MOVITRAC LT family comprises three groups: the economy MOVITRAC LTE series (0.37 to 4 kW); the MOVITRAC LTE IP55 series (0.37 to 4 kW), which is designed for field-mounting in areas susceptible to low-pressure water, dust and dirt; plus the new general-purpose MOVITRAC LTP series (0.37 to 160 kW).
The MOVITRAC LTP series offers users three means of access for drive configuration, monitoring and control: an in-built keypad, an onboard RS485 port for PC access, and the infrared optical link for wireless connectivity to a pocket PC. SEW-Eurodrive’s configuration and monitoring software--SEW-LTP Shell--is also available at no extra cost.
The MOVITRAC LTP has an integrated communications port for networking to other drives and controllers, provides full torque at zero speed without encoder, and supports 150 percent overload for up to 60 seconds.
All MOVITRAC LT family members are C-tick compliant, and are rated to 50 degrees Celsius ambient temperature.
