The benefits for you

Greatly reduced time required during startup
Identification and automatic startup of a gearmotor on a MOVI-C® - inverter without an engineering tool.

Error prevention in the event of a malfunction
Automatic startup after motor replacement without engineering tool.

50 % space saving
Only one cable for power, encoder, temperature, brake and for transmitting further diagnostics: wear, utilization, aging ...

Standardization of the connection technology
One hybrid cable for data connection and power supply of all synchronous and asynchronous motors from SEW-EURODRIVE with/ without brake.

Control technology Control cabinet technology Decentralized drive technology Drive technology
MOVILINK® DDI lets data flow

Single-cable technology forms the basis for the energy supply and seamless data exchange. In technological terms, this means you only need one hybrid cable to supply the motor with power and establish communication with the frequency inverter, no matter how extensive your system is. Movement is already underway – data is already flowing.

In practical terms, this also means you save time and money during installation, because the exceptionally robust and high-performance design of the cable with coaxial data line makes it possible to implement compact installations with ease.

Condition Monitoring and DriveRadar® from SEW-EURODRIVE

The communication unit of the MOVILINK DDI®interface pools your drive data. MOVILINK® DDI makes it possible to collect sensor data both on and inside the motor, and put this data to use. If complex data analyses are required, evaluate the data provided by MOVILINK® DDI using an edge processing unit. Quick, secure and, if necessary, accessible from anywhere. You can also use the DriveRadar® SmartDataCollector to bundle and collect powertrain data, the IoTSuite for cloud-based aggregation of your data, and the DriveRadar® IoT App if you want mobile access. We offer effective digitalization to save you time and money, thanks to our fast, automated support!
