Your benefits

High flexibility
through the positioning of simple lifting axes to complex conveyor axes on all common bus systems.

Low total costs
due to energy-optimized brake control, operation of IE2 to IE4 motors and saving on external components.

Simple startup
due to standardized application modules including evaluation of process relevant decentralized sensor technology.

High system availability
due to potential pre-startup without controller in operation and fast unit replacement with only one screw.

Confirmed safety
by means of compliance with certified safety options from secure communication and safe disconnection through to safe motion.

Flexible solutions to demanding materials handling tasks with decentralized drive concept

Automation made easy! Implement demanding materials handling applications with our decentralized application inverter MOVIFIT® FC in the technology function level design. The technology design provides both the opportunity to operate standardized 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.

Our 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 our MOVIFIT® FC for energy efficiency. Combine the inverter with our 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 our application modules. Simple parameterization 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.

Our MOVIFIT® FC inverter has more than just internal strengths. The high degree of protection IP65 is standard. Its robust aluminum 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.

Save cost and time on installation as well. The integrated T distributor for energy and communication, the integrated repair switch and digital IOs means that a wide variety of external additional components are no longer required for the installation.

The HygienicPlus design for use in extreme ambient conditions, for example in wet conditions in the beverage industry is also available as standard

The application inverter consists of an electronics unit (EBOX) and the connection unit shown here (ABOX). The MOVIFIT® connection box (ABOX) is a large connector and is entirely passive. It is available in two designs:

MOVIFIT® standard connection box

All cables to be connected are routed into the ABOX via cable glands and wired to terminals at this point.

MOVIFIT® hybrid connection box

The hybrid connection box (ABOX) of MOVIFIT® from SEW‑EURODRIVE is also a large connector. It also only contains the connection technology All cables for power supply and the motor cables are routed into the ABOX via cable glands and wired to terminals at this point. M12 connectors are provided for digital inputs and outputs. The bus system can be connected via connectors. The bus connectors vary depending on the fieldbus used.

The function level indicates the functional scope of the software assigned to the MOVIFIT® units in terms of:

  • Software functionality
  • Processing the digital inputs and outputs
  • Local system control
  • Startup operation and diagnostics
