effiDRIVE® in practice. Successfully implemented energy saving solutions
Bottle conveyor – beverage industry
Compact mechatronic drive systems that combine motor, gear unit and electronics increase overall efficiency by between 10% and 25% when compared to standard solutions.
Luggage handling – airport logistics
The combination of gear units with optimized efficiency and highly efficient driving motors allows for a total energy savings potential of up to 30%.
Supply air for buildings – ventilation systems
The combination of energy-efficient motors and frequency inverters makes it possible to adapt work processes to make them more energy efficient, and can lead to potential energy savings of up to 70% for ventilation systems.
Storage/retrieval system – internal logistics
The tried and tested “Intelligent DC link coupling for storage/retrieval systems” package solution reduces energy consumption by up to 50% at maximum unit power.
Required tools and resources
Tools and resources for energy-efficient applications
Our IE guide web application provides you with useful information on country-specific efficiency regulations.
The conversion guide provides support for your switch to an energy-efficient motor. Once you have chosen a standard motor, you will be given an overview of all the available energy-efficient motors that match the technical data.
Energy efficiency calculator
With our energy efficiency calculator, you can work out how much energy and CO2you can save by using energy-efficient motors. The calculator also works out the relevant amortization time.
The energy consumption analysis – a new function in the SEW Workbench – is another helpful tool that enables you to unlock the energy saving potential of a drive during project planning. The resulting energy report, which has been certified by TÜV SÜD, gives you the energy demand, energy costs and CO2emissions for your specific application and planned driveline. This lays the foundation for choosing the most energy-efficient drive technology.
