MOVIGEAR® – the mechatronic drive system

In many industries, such as the automotive, food and beverage industry, airport logistics or general intralogistics, the demands on materials handling systems are becoming both more complex and more specific. At the same time, less installation space is available for meeting these demands. This is why SEW-EURODRIVE researches and develops ideal application solutions. The result is the mechatronic drive system MOVIGEAR®. It has an advantageous, compact design and is ideal for ensuring that conveyor systems are structured efficiently.

The housing has been optimized specifically for these types of applications and can be easily integrated in today’s conveyor systems. It also enables new developments to be implemented from a completely new perspective. This technology masters high break-away and acceleration torque levels after longer system downtimes time without any limitations. The power required to drive the system can be reduced significantly.

MOVIGEAR® is the next logical step in the development of the economically and technically successful concept of decentralized drive systems.
Mechatronic drive system comprising motor, gear unit and electronics
A systematic development approach was taken right from the design phase. ­MOVIGEAR® impresses with its high level of system efficiency, which in turn helps lower the energy costs. The integration and coordination of all the drive components leads to a long service life and high system availability.

MOVIGEAR® is an intelligent device with its own control concept. Its high-quality ­networking features help reduce the startup time and support the monitoring and maintenance tasks. Drive tasks can be solved quickly and easily using the ­corresponding application software.

MOVIGEAR DAC-B – Direct AS-Interface Communication
MOVIGEAR® DAC-B for simple fieldbus connection via standard AS-Interface. ­Parameterizable fixed speeds and ramps, integrated STO safety function and ­connection options for external sensors ensure fast and extremely efficient implementation of material handling systems.

Fields of application
Application examples
AS-interface option
The AS-Interface option is located on the connection board in the connection box.

MOVIGEAR® DAC-B is available with the following AS-Interface variants:

The following figure shows the topology and the travel diagrams of the MOVIGEAR® DAC-B drive unit with the AS-Interface slaves GLK30A [A] and GLK31A [B]:

MOVIGEAR® DAC-B with double slave GLK31A
Drive with several speed setpoints and ramps
Safety switching device/safety controller

GLK30A binary slave
Connected to AS-Interface, the GLK30A slave works like a module with 4 inputs and 4 outputs.

The cyclic output bits control the MOVIGEAR® DAC-B inverter.

The input bits transmit the status of the drive and 2 additional sensor signals to the AS-Interface master.

The acyclic parameter bits are used to select speed scaling factors.

GLK31A double slave
The GLK31A option works as a double slave on AS-Interface according to AS-Interface specification 3.0.

The serial AS-Interface data transmission (analog profile) allows for writing and reading MOVIGEAR® DAC-B parameters and display values.

The MOVIGEAR® DAC-B inverter is controlled via the cyclic output bits. The coding of the data bits is specified in different function modules. The MOVIGEAR® DAC-B inverter interprets these bits as different control and status codes. You can switch between the function modules using the acyclic parameter bits.

The input bits transmit the status of the drive and 2 additional sensor signals to the AS-Interface master.
