Leading global manufacturer of electrical and mechanical drives, motion control and automation technology, Lenze Americas recently introduced its innovative Smart Motor designed for applications ranging from material handling to packaging automation. Blending the simplicity of a conventional AC motor with electronic drive control technology, Lenze's versatile Smart Motor was showcased at PACK EXPO in September.
Offering a highly versatile and powerful package, the Smart Motor delivers maximum standardization - drastically reducing (by up to 70 percent) the number of different motor variations customers might otherwise need.
Equipped with control intelligence in the terminal box, the Smart Motor provides design flexibility for speeds from 500 to 2,600 rpm, while maintaining constant torque. The easy-to-install motor enables mains and starter applications to be handled with greater ease than with conventional motors.
The Smart Motor complies with IES2 the top efficiency class for drive systems, while maintaining a small footprint. Among its standard functions, the Smart Motor enables speed switchovers and the ability to set individual start-stop ramps.
Integrated ramps ensure smooth acceleration and deceleration to protect the system mechanics and product being handled. The Smart Motor features full motor protection, eco mode for energy savings, and digital outputs for speed selection, direction and status messages.
Lenze I/O Systems
The Availability of EtherNet/IP based bus systems lays the foundations for new automation concepts in the field of machine and systems engineering - the performance limits of established bus systems are then eliminated. The L-force I/O system 1000 offers highly deterministic control of input and output modules, which also includes importing touch probe inputs, such as those required for synchronised movements in clocked production processes.
AC Tech Drives
Lenze SCF Series can be used with 3-phase AC induction motors rated from 1/4 HP up to 30HP (0.18 - 22 kW) on voltages from 120V single-phase to 590 V three-phase. With 18 isolated terminals (5 logic inputs, 2 logic outputs, 2 analog inputs and 2 analog outputs plus RS485 Modbus Serial Communication), the SCF Series is ideal for motion control applications from the simple to the complex.
