SEW launches new inverter range at NMW


Drive solutions specialist SEW-Eurodrive will launch an IP66 extension of the company’s Movitrac Lte Version B frequency inverter range at National Manufacturing Week (NMW) in May 2011.

The Movitrac Lte Version B is ideally suited to low-power variable-speed drive applications, such as small fans and pumps, machine tools and conveyors. Previously available in both IP20 and IP55 housings, the new IP66 model provides added dust and water protection for harsh environments.

The Movitrac Lte Version B is available in single phase (up to 2.2kW) and three phase (up to 7.5kW) – and comes in three compact frame sizes. It also boasts an innovative integrated DIN-rail snap-in mounting capability, which simplifies installation.

Fast and easy to set up, the Movitrac Lte Version B features 14 standard and 26 extended configuration parameters.

This, coupled with the drive’s easy mechanical and electrical installation, ensures that basic drive applications can be “up and running” in minutes.

The MOVITRAC LTE version B IP66 model is ideal for the food and beverage industry, says SEW-Eurodrive Strategic Marketing and Product Manager, Darren Klonowski.

“This model is completely water proof,” he says. “Maintaining its integrity in washdown situations, this unit would be well suited to applications such as conveyors and pumps installed in challenging environments.”

The Movitrac Lte Version B also provides users with new levels of interfacing flexibility.

“The Movitrac Lte Version B series offers users four means of access for drive configuration, monitoring and control,” says Klonowski.

“It is equipped with an in-built keypad, an onboard RS485 port for PC access, an infrared optical link for wireless connectivity to pocket PC or smart phone, and optional portable programming stick for multi-drive parameter transfer.

“The portable programming stick is perfect for OEMs that need to program large quantities of drives. Now, manufacturers are able to configure a single drive, and then simply transfer the parameters onto any number of other drives. This is a real time saver.”

For more information about the Movitrac Lte Version B family, visit SEW-Eurodrive at NMW (Stand No 2900), Melbourne Exhibition Centre from May 24-27.
