Application inverters MOVIFIT® FC – technology

Automation made easy! Implement demanding materials handling applications with the decentralised application inverter MOVIFIT® FC in the technology function level design. The technology design provides both the opportunity to operate standardised application modules as well as to implement your system specific requirements through programming. This can be implemented both for simple speed controlled auxiliary axes through to the operation of simple hoist axes or complex conveyor axes.
The application inverter is equipped with extensive safety functions and supports virtually all common field bus systems. Optimally equipped for a broad range of applications. Also choose the MOVIFIT® FC for energy efficiency. Combine the inverter with the DRU..J series (IE4 motors) energy efficient motors and an efficient brake control. Save energy and costs in the process.
Implement application functions without any time consuming programming in combination with Sew Eurodrive’s application modules. Simple parameterisation with the aid of intuitive startup wizards enables the implementation of complex motion sequences such as cam positioning for up to three MOVIMOT®. Your tasks can also be freely programmed using the standard IEC 61131 languages In addition, a complete range of program components is available for individual and tailored solutions. The MOVITOOLS® MotionStudio enables a complete engineering concept. A tool with all the elements necessary for automation and startup of your system.
The MOVIFIT® FC inverter has more than just internal strengths. The high degree of protection IP65 is standard. Its robust aluminium die cast housing is divided into electronics unit (EBOX) and connection unit (ABOX). A major advantage is the closing mechanism with only one screw. This enables quick assembly and smooth unit replacement for servicing.
