MOVIMOT® advanced drive unit

The ultimate in intelligent, flexible and cost-effective decentralized drive technology, MOVIMOT® advanced pairs an asynchronous motor with a frequency inverter to create a decentralized drive unit and can be flexibly combined with any standard gear unit. What's more, MOVIMOT® advanced is compatible with all standard Ethernet-based infrastructures.

Drive unit with integrated, decentralized inverter

By augmenting the end-to-end functionality of existing MOVI‑C® products, MOVIMOT® advanced increases the range of possible applications for our decentralized drive technology, which has been proving its worth for decades.

Integrating an energy-efficient asynchronous motor from the DRN.. series with the new, decentralized inverter from the MOVI‑C® modular automation system means the decentralized drive unit achieves the maximum IES2 system efficiency according to IEC 61800-9-2. The integrated digital interface ensures quick, easy and convenient startup, even with the widest range of gearmotor options.

Encoder or sensor signals can be evaluated without additional installation work. MOVIMOT® advanced can be combined with all standard gear units in series 7 and 9 for versatile and flexible use.

End-to-end integration into various automation topologies is achieved using any standard means of communication with other MOVI‑C® products. Furthermore, the optional, integrated load disconnector makes it possible to disconnect the drive unit from the power supply without switching off the entire system. The new, decentralized MOVIMOT® advanced drive unit combines individuality with user-friendly operation.
