Lyman, SC - October 29, 2006 - A compact new line of frequency inverters from SEW-EURODRIVE features an optional plug-in keypad and communication modules that provide quick set-up of parameters and extensive diagnostics capabilities.
The new MOVITRAC® B inverters feature a versatile modular design and comprehensive expansion options that enable users to select just the right combination of inverter functionality for an application. Removable power terminals and mounting panels make installation fast and simple. The optional plug-in keypad serves as a portable tool for changing the parameters of multiple MOVITRAC® B inverters.
The new inverters are compatible with a wide range of ETHERNET and fieldbus networks, including EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, DeviceNet, PROFIBUS, INTERBUS, CANopen and Ethernet Modbus TCP/IP. Motion and logic control can be programmed with SEW's new MOVI-PLC®, which incorporates a library of application functions or allows custom programming through any standard IEC 61331 language.
A five-digit LED display shows current, speed and output frequency and includes pictograms for acceleration and deceleration ramp, fixed setpoints, maximum speed, parameter menu, motor startup, data transfer and manual speed control mode.
