Integrated Drive Solution

Dec. 1, 2008
The Movigear mechatronic drive system integrates motor, drive and matching drive electronics in a single compact housing.

Benefits include high overload capacity and low noise emission. Also, in contrast to much current automation technology that relies on separate cables for energy and communication, the single-line technology deployed with Movigear uses one cable, decreasing the cost of installation. This simplified structure is said to dramatically reduce start-up time. Movigear is aimed at a wide range of horizontal conveyor applications, including food and beverage, and package handling.
