SEW-Eurodrive Movipro SDC standard drive controller

Tuesday, 20 April, 2010 | Supplied by: SEW-Eurodrive Pty Ltd

The Movipro SDC (standard drive controller) features a compact IP54-rated enclosure and is designed to provide industry with an easy-to-use field-mountable drive solution, suitable for decentralised single-axis speed control and positioning applications.

The IP54-rated enclosure permits on-machine installation. By field-mounting the Movipro close to the gear motors, ‘real estate’ requirements in the central control cabinet are reduced permitting a reduction in installation, material and maintenance costs associated with wiring inverters back to a central control cabinet.

The Movipro SDC is offered in two physical sizes - 4 to 7.5 kW and 11 to 15 kW - accommodating standard variable speed drive, as well as positioning and synchronous applications, such as those associated with high-tech conveyors, stackers and cranes. The unit is also equipped with incremental or absolute encoder feedback functionality and integrated brake control, negating the need for separate brake control equipment and voltage supplies.

The Movipro SDC is also supported by a library of preconfigured application modules, which permit fast configuration. Operators need only parameterise the preconfigured application modules - such as fieldbus positioning, absolute positioning, positioning to a touch probe and modulo positioning - via SEW’s complimentary Movitools MotionStudio operating software.

The Movipro SDC’s integrated communications gateway supports a number of external fieldbus communication protocols, including Profibus, DeviceNet, EtherNet/IP and Profinet.

An optional maintenance switch allows site technicians to isolate the mains power to the Movipro SDC. This provides troubleshooting flexibility, allowing maintenance to be carried out without risk of energising the motor. Additional operational and set-up flexibility is provided by the Movipro SDC’s optional I/O interfaces and plug-in/plug-out connections.
