NEW SAFETY OPTION FOR MOVIFIT DRIVE UNITS

SEW-EURODRIVE has extended its comprehensive range of safety technology to include the integrated S12 safety option for MOVIFIT FC/MC drive units.

Safety technology from SEW can be implemented in most applications – from control cabinet technology with integrated or independent axis monitors to decentralised technology alike.

SEW-EURODRIVE now offers the integrated S12 safety option for its decentralised MOVIFIT FC/MC drive units, used for constructing modular and flexible conveyor systems. The two option card versions S12A and S12B support different numbers of safety-related inputs and outputs.

The new S12 option offers the additional safety functions STO (safe torque off), SS1a/c (safe stop 1), SLS (safely limited speed) and SDI (safe direction) on top of the standard MOVIFIT functions. The SLS function can be easily applied using the EI7C/(FS) simple motor integrated encoder.

The safety functions are an integral element of the MOVIFIT modular system. SEW-EURODRIVE’s MOVITOOLS MotionStudio engineering software is used to program the S12.

SEW-EURODRIVE’s S12 safety option is a cost-effective, integrated safety solution.  It can be used either independently or as a fieldbus slave with PROFIsafe via Profibus or Profinet.

The inputs can also be set as 1- or 2-channel, and they can read OSSD (Output Signal Switching Device)-capable sensors such as light grids and scanners.

The safety option is useful wherever materials need moving, e.g. on roller conveyors, rotary tables, electrified monorail systems for light loads. This is particularly relevant for the intralogistics sector.
