MOVITOOLS MotionStudio


The more functions drive engineering offers,
the more important it is to have an effective tool for operating
drives and visualizing processes. The MOVITOOLS®® MotionStudio engineering
tool from SEW‑EURODRIVE offers you such a tool. With MOVITOOLS®® MotionStudio, you can
parameterize, program, and diagnose most of the inverter series from


  • Convenient drive startup and parameter
  • Drive diagnostics using the built-in oscilloscope function
  • Create application and user programs, in high-level languages
    if required, right on the plant floor using the Assembler or using
    the graphic programming interface
  • View the status of connected devices
  • Bus monitor
  • Control technology functions
  • Completed application modules for various applications
  • Read out electronic nameplates
  • Electronic nameplates of SEW‑EURODRIVE gearmotors are used
    for automatic motor adjustment
  • MOVITOOLS®® MotionStudio

Overview of the tools and their functions

  • Configuration
    and startup: To adapt the inverter to the connected motor and optimize
    current, speed and position controllers
  • Manual mode: The tool allows for manually controlling the
    units directly from the PC.
  • Parameter
    tree: Standardized editor for configuring parameters for various
    unit types.
  • PDO Editor Process data editor for graphic configuration of
    process data for MOVIAXIS® multi-axis
    servo inverters®
  • Gateway configurator: Standardized tool for diagnosing and
    configuring UFx41B and DFx fieldbus gateways, with MOVIFIT® Classic
    and Technology function levels
and visualization
  • Status: Support
    for unit diagnostics, communicates general unit status information,
    manual unit reset possible
  • Application Builder: Editor for designing application-specific
    visualization and application-specific diagnostics. Visualization
    is connected via file download with the IPOS inverter program and
    the parameter setting.
  • Fieldbus monitor: Tool for running diagnostics on the communication between
    the fieldbus and the unit (monitor mode), and the setpoint selection
    on the unit independently of the control (control mode)
  • Scope: Diagnostics using an oscilloscope program for all SEW‑EURODRIVE
  • PLC Editor:
    Programming of the controller series MOVI-PLC®® controller
    using custom application programs, device-independent
  • IPOS®assembler and
