Scalable functional safety from STO function integrated as standard to retrofittable option cards for additional safety functions as well as safe communication.
Connection to common control systems by supporting various fieldbus protocols.
When developing our new MOVI‑C® modular automation system, one of the key considerations was whether current inverter technology will cope with the automation tasks of the next few decades. One approach would have been to take tried-and-tested components that are technically sound and, most importantly, reliable and make them even better.
Instead, we chose to completely re-engineer inverter technology and take automation technology based on MOVI‑C® to a whole new level. After all, we believe the future of automation is mapped out in every component, including inverter technology. That's why the new MOVI‑C® modular automation system includes new MOVIDRIVE®application inverters. Although the name hasn't changed, the inverters have been completely redeveloped and redesigned. The end result is a new inverter platform for all standard motors.

From control technology to inverters and drives, whether centralized or decentralized, there are no language barriers with any of the components from the MOVI-C® modular automation system.
Plan the design of your machines or systems with a single control, communication or installation topology. Our hardware and software will slot seamlessly into place and simply get things moving.
The EtherCAT® CiA402 profile is increasingly being used for custom motion control applications, as it has proven highly effective, especially in complex processes. Naturally, MOVIDRIVE® application inverters have the appropriate interface and can also easily control up to 30 drives (individually) with just one power supply module.
MOVIDRIVE® application inverters are available as single-axis application inverters with rated outputs of up to 315 kW and as modular multi-axis systems incorporating single-axis and double-axis modules with rated currents of up to 180 A. They exhibit an overload capacity of up to 250% for dynamic motion. Inverter technology "made by SEW‑EURODRIVE" – both as single-axis application inverters and in the modular design – controls and monitors all types of motors, from synchronous and asynchronous AC motors with/without an encoder to asynchronous motors with LSPM technology or synchronous and asynchronous linear motors. Functional safety is, of course, built in and even the basic unit incorporates the STO safety function in PL e. More than 15 additional safety functions can be incorporated using safety option cards.
Compact multi-axis system comprising power supply modules, regenerative power supply modules, single-axis modules and double-axis modules
In addition to the standard features of MOVIDRIVE® system, MOVIDRIVE® technology also offers:
To get your motor up and running, you can read off and input the type designation on the motor's electronic nameplate. Alternatively, you can also use the electronic catalog in the MOVISUITE® engineering software.
Even motors that are not recognized pose no problem thanks to easy startup using a calibration function. What's more, energy-saving functions such as regenerative power supply units, energy storage units and a standby mode ensure optimum energy efficiency. During breaks in operation, standby mode reduces the power consumption of application inverters by up to 85% – without losing communication with the higher-level PLC.
Applications are put into operation using graphical editors, which make it incredibly easy to create motion functions, and automatic IEC code generation, which is an entry-level sequence programming solution.

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.

MOVILINK® DDI digital motor integration from the MOVI‑C® modular automation system enables you to connect drives to power and data.
Due to the requirements associated with technical standards and situations where humans and machines are working hand in hand, the number of plant areas equipped with functional safety technology is constantly growing. As a result, functional safety is an integral part of any application.
With the MOVISAFE® CS..A safety cards, SEW‑EURODRIVE has made functional safety part and parcel of all MOVI-C® application inverters. STO in PL e is already included in the MOVIDRIVE® basic unit. All higher-level safety functions are achieved by inserting an option card, including all the necessary connections to the inverter technology – encoder, communication and STO. This helps you reduce project costs to what is necessary to achieve the functions you actually need.
