SEW-EURODRIVE GmbH based in Bruchsal, Baden-Württemberg, is one of the leading manufacturers of industrial drive technology. Around 15,000 employees all over the world work in SEW-EURODRIVE’s production and assembly plants and in the service and sales support points represented in 45 countries. The broad product line consists of the popular construction kits featuring gear motors and frequency converters, or even drive automation components, servo drive systems, decentralised drive systems and industrial gears.
Globalisation means that SEW-EURODRIVE customers are facing ever-greater challenges when it comes to planning, installing and commissioning logistics centres that are distributed the world over, which calls for extremely cost- and time-efficient plant implementation. Also of key economic significance for subsequent plant operation is operation involving as few interruptions as possible due to components that are gentle on resources.
The Weidmüller FieldPower® contact block being integrated in the MOVIFIT® basic connection box means that all of the feed-in requirements are satisfied with just one single component. Use of IDC technology is synonymous with fast installation. Thanks to the zero-cut technology of the FieldPower® contact block, a complete drive train consisting of MOVIFIT® basic drives in line topology is set up using just one cable. The power supply can be connected using standard cables.
The customer benefit
Thanks to FieldPower®, both a feed-in and an interface to the electronics box have been implemented using just one component, simplifying assembly of the connection box and allowing for this component assembly to be manufactured cost-efficiently. By integrating the innovative FieldPower® contact block in the MOVIFIT® basic connection box, the power bus is situated directly in the device – delivering atopology benefit compared with classic solutions.
