from highly efficient, highly integrated standard gearmotor to "digital drive" with digital interface MOVILINK® DDI.

Auto identification
If equipped with MOVILINK® DDI, the motor sends its data to the inverter, which sets its parameters to these values accordingly. A motor replacement is detected and a release is requested.

Protection function
The state of the thermal motor sensor is permanently monitored. Changes and the reaching of threshold values trigger the safety functions programmed in the inverter.

The application decides the selection: encoderless control of the speed or with absolute information of the position from position within one revolution and number of revolutions.

Gear unit and permanent magnet synchronous motor

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

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)

Areas of application of the different designs depending on principal requirements:

Requirements Standard conveyor applicationsConveyor applications in areas with regular cleaning or wet lubrication
Drive design StandardWet-area design /WA
Requirements on the drive system / surface

  • Regular cleaning and/or wet lubrication
  • High degree of chemical resistance
  • Indirect contact with material to be conveyed such as food

Required protection class IP65IP66
Target applications e.g. logistics, automotivee.g. beverage industry, bakeries, mills


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.

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.

"The MOVI‑C® modular automation system gives customers the option to implement their applications both with inverters in a control cabinet and with drive electronics that are either located close to the motor or without any differences in terms of project planning, handling or performance. An essential part of the platform is the digital motor integration. This supports automatic drive train startup and also ensures that various sensor signals can be transmitted from the motor to the electronics without requiring any additional installation work."
