Material handling and drive technology using the modules for Lenze Smart Motors

Cost savings in horizontal transport

Material handling and drive technology – Lenze Smart Motor

The AS-Interface fieldbus communication has long been established in material handling. Countless companies are benefiting from the easy installation, high flexibility and low costs of AS-i; in both the installation of the application and the maintenance work.

 

Bihl+Wiedemann manufactures special modules for controlling Lenze Smart Motors which provide a suitable solution for many different applications.

 

The decentralized control of the 3-phase motors offers more flexibility compared to conventional systems – both in terms of planning and the subsequent expansion of application structures.

Main features

  • Separate mounting, simple maintenance 
  • Reliable use at extreme temperatures up to -30 °C
  • Connections for up to 3 sensors in one module 
  • Control of up to 5 speeds 
  • Simple connection of the Lenze Smart Motor via M12 sockets or pre-assembled cables
  • Transmission of standard and safety signals via the same cable 
  • Optimal connection to the PLC via all common fieldbus systems 
  • Depending on the desired type of installation, different module versions are available for controlling the Lenze Smart Motor

Modules for controlling Lenze Smart Motors

Material handling and drive technology – a modular system

The conveyor belt is combined into a single product

  • Allows pre-assembly and testing of the conveyor belt before final assembly 
  • Fast and error-free assembly and disassembly 
  • Reduction of development costs in the project planning phase 
  • Reduction of the size of the control cabinet due to fewer components
