Increased flexibility and productivity for automated production systems is delivered by SEW-EURODRIVE in a new family of synchronous servo gear units. This modular product line can be used to create more than 6,000 different integrated solutions that combine servo gears directly with synchronous servomotors. These low backlash planetary and helical-bevel servo gear units achieve higher torque ratings and better accuracy at faster speeds.
Small, lightweight PSC, PSF and BSF gear units span ranges of 25 to 3000 Nm of torque in 18 different models. They're available with input speeds of up to 6,000 RPM with 15 integer ratios from 3 to 100 and circumferential backlash as low as 1 arc-minute. This wide range makes it easier for equipment builders to deliver improved performance and operating efficiency without purchasing more capabilities than they need.
New BSF helical-bevel servo gear units and PSC and PSF planetary servo gear units can be mounted directly on SEW's dynamic synchronous DS, CM and CMP servomotors. This enables the motor shaft to be connected to the input pinion of the gear unit, eliminating the need for an adapter with clamp coupling. These geared servomotors offer a completely positive design from the motor shaft to the gear unit output shaft. Not only is this design more compact because the drive is smaller and lighter, but cycle times are shorter because the gearmotor can operate more dynamically with considerably more torsional rigidity. This is a lower cost alternative that is also safer since it eliminates the risk that non-positive connections can become loose.
SEW's modular approach to design means that each of these servo gearmotors is available in multiple sizes, shaft designs, backlash ranges and mounting options. SEW's AC gearmotors, servo gearmotors and electronic drives are built to order in local assembly plants in the U.S. and around the world, enabling machine builders to rapidly customize equipment to achieve the faster speeds, increased precision and greater reliability customers want.
SEW-EURODRIVE announces its new exceptionally lightweight and compact, NEMA Type 4X / IP66 inverter. The 2nd generation of MOVITRAC LTE brings the benefits of smart, easy-to-use motor control to demanding applications like food and beverage processing, conveying, fan/pump control, and metalworking.
Easy to install and cost-effective, the MOVITRAC LTE drive contains dust tight seals to deliver reliable performance even under high pressure wash down. Predefined parameter settings and a user friendly keypad enables fast, "plug-in and drive" start-up. The front of the drive contains easily accessible wire terminals and a laminated help card for quick reference to parameters and wiring.
MOVITRAC LTE is also available in NEMA Type 1 / IP20 and NEMA Type 12 / IP55.
MOVITRAC LTE covers a power range from 0.5 - 10HP for operation in single-phase and three-phase power supply systems. Options include power switch, potentiometer, and 32kHz "quiet switching" for silent motor operations. It can withstand 150% overload for 60 seconds.
High speed, high efficiency, and low noise makes the W37/W47 Spiroplan right-angle gear units from SEW-EURODRIVE the perfect choice for conveyors in the food, beverage, airport, and material handling industries as well as other logistics.
With a robust aluminum housing, Spiroplan gear units are compact, light-weight, lubricated for life, and may be mounted in any orientation (except M4) with the same amount of oil. Offering low gear ratios for high output speeds, their wear-free gears minimize friction for optimal efficiency. And with very low noise, they are perfectly suited for quiet, sensitive work areas.
The first stage helical gearing and the second stage hypoid gearing combination of the W37 & W47 Spiroplan provide high mechanical efficiency and low energy consumption compared to worm gear units. Low cost, low maintenance, and low energy consumption means low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
A Stainless-Steel Housing with bonded ceramic or brazed sapphire sensing face and protection class IP 68 guarantees robustness and exceptional reliability in miniature packages sized from Ø 3 to M8. The Extra pressure range is also ideal for high vacuum environments and satellite applications, offering fit-and-forget capability and a sealed cable entry that ensures no loss of service or interruptions to production.
The Emergency Stop Function shuts off the inverter output (i.e. stops the switching operation of the main circuit elements) in response to a command from a hardware circuit via an intelligent input terminal without the operation by internal CPU software. The emergency stop function does not electrically shut off the inverter but merely stops the switching operation of the main circuit elements. Therefore, do not touch any terminals of
