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 DBC-B – Direct Binary Communication
SEW-EURODRIVE has developed the mechatronic drive solution MOVIGEAR® DBC-B specifically for stand-alone applications and for applications with simple functionalities. DIP switches and potentiometers allow for simple and fast startup – without the need of a PC. The unit is controlled via the binary inputs either by a central PLC or in local/­manual mode.
