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
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.

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.

  • Compact design: Motor, gear unit and electronics are combined in a single mechatronic drive system
  • Simplified system planning and design
  • A reduction in the number of variants allows for developing and designing standard materials handling systems with pre-fabricated
    and tested standard modules.
  • The power of the drive engineering components is optimized to suit the application
  • Reduction in storage due to reduced number of variants
  • High degree of protection
  • Hygienic surface design for applications in hygienic areas
  • No air, dirt and germ swirls
  • Low noise emission due to operation without fans
(suitable for use in manual work stations)
  • Reduced energy costs due to high efficiency of all components (gear unit, motor, electronics)
  • High degree of reliability due to systematic development of all components
  • Reduced total costs and operating costs of the materials handling system

MOVIGEAR® is available in 3 sizes and 2 mechanical designs. For more information, see the section “Technical data and dimension sheets.”

  • LED display for operating and fault states
  • Protective features for complete protection of the frequency inverter and motor (short-circuit, overload, overvoltage/undervoltage,
    excess temperature in the frequency inverter, excess temperature in the drive unit).
  • IPOS integrated positioning and sequence control
  • Integrated STO safety function
    • STO (safe torque off according to IEC 61800-5-2) by disconnecting the STO input.
    • Performance level e according to EN ISO 13849-1.
    • SS1(c) (safe stop 1, function variant c according to IEC 61800-5-2) by means of suitable external control (e.g. safety relay with
      delayed disconnection)

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

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

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.

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.
