Saving energy with decentralised drives

18 October 2015

SEW Eurodrive's award winning decentralised mechatronic drive system Movigear is typically able to reduce energy consumption by up to 50 percent compared with standard drive products.

Suitable for materials handling and conveying applications, Movigear is designed with high-efficiency individual components and combines the gearing, motor and drive electronics in a single unit. Its energy saving capabilities have been confirmed numerous times in various situations, including on real-life customer applications by comparing detailed before-and-after test results.

The energy costs to run equipment are made up of the actual mechanical energy required to drive it, combined with energy losses due to inefficiency. Savings can therefore only be achieved if these losses are reduced to an absolute minimum, which Movigear is able to achieve.

Movigear is part of SEW Eurodrive's highly efficient decentralised range of products that make it possible to do away with control cabinets saving space, reducing costs and the laborious, time-consuming wiring of motors, sensors and actuators, not to mention the elimination of much of the costly cabling.
