MOVIGEAR® classic drive unit

MOVIGEAR® classic drive unit in wet-area design

The MOVIGEAR® classic drive unit consists of a permanent-field synchronous motor and a gear unit in a compact aluminum die cast housing. It can be combined intelligently with an inverter installed close to the motor or in the control cabinet. This gives you an ideal level of flexibility for your particular system situation –

  • an integrated drive unit comprising a permanent magnet synchronous motor and a gear unit
  • 0.4 – 3.0 kW available in three gear unit sizes
  • Motor energy efficiency class IE5 to IEC TS 60034-30-2

With MOVIGEAR® classic, a high level of energy efficiency is even possible in the lower power range . Our smallest option, size 1, ensures this is the case. For example, it is ideal for use in conveyor applications that require low torques between 10 and 100 Nm.

The MOVIGEAR® classic drive unit is our compact powerhouse. Even in the lowest power range, it impresses with maximum efficiency. Take a look at the facts about MOVIGEAR® classic and see for yourself!

The benefits for you

  • Consistency
    because you can choose between control cabinet and decentralized installation to precisely suit your requirements
  • Modularity
    because the drive electronics are identical for all product families
  • Simple installation
    both on the supply side and also when installed close to the motor thanks to digital motor integration (single-cable technology)
  • High energy efficiency
    because the drive unit already complies with motor efficiency class IE5
  • Optimum surface/corrosion protection
    thanks to a new wet-area design and protection class IP66

MOVIGEAR® classic is highly versatile

Horizontal conveyor systems (with or without wet-area design)

  • Intralogistics
  • Parcel logistics
  • Food and beverage industry
  • Automotive industry
  • Baggage handling at airports

Find the right inverter for you in our new MOVI‑C® modular automation system. You can combine the MOVIGEAR® classic drive unit with the MOVITRAC® advanced standard inverter or the MOVIMOT® flexible decentralized inverter.

MOVIGEAR® classic with new wet-area design /WA

This design is particularly suitable for applications in areas that are subject to regular cleaning or wet lubrication and in sensitive areas, such as those in the food and beverage industry.

Components of the wet-area design /WA:

  • Output shaft, screws and breather valve made of stainless steel
  • Degree of protection IP66
  • Surface protection HCP200 in four colors – papyrus white, ultramarine blue, aluminum white and jet black
  • Surface protection with HCP200F FDA certification in two colors – papyrus white and jet black
  • Pressure compensation fitting /PE
  • Safety cover for output shaft (B-side)

The following illustration demonstrates the areas of application of the different designs and lists their principal requirements.

Digital motor and data integration

Single-cable technology for power supply and data transfer with digital encoder for synchronous and asynchronous motors

In fact, only one hybrid cable is required and installed here for the data connection between inverter and motor, and the MOVILINK® DDI digital data interface transfers the power, brake and diagnostic data to the motor.

Topologies

It makes no difference what equipment and systems you have. They could be used for anything from basic material transport (single-axis automation) through to complex transportation tasks (module automation). Nor does it matter whether your system is controlled using motion control, EtherCAT® or POWERLINK.

MOVI‑C® has no language barriers and supports any installation architecture.

Certifications / conformity

  • Country certifications:
  • CE (Europe)
  • CMIM (Morocco)
  • EAC (Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan)
  • RCM (Australia)
  • UA.TR (Ukraine)
