Up to now, extra-low voltage drives have been particularly in demand for applications in the automotive and consumer goods industries. However, compared to conventional industrial servo drives, this field has different product requirements in terms of robustness, durability, serviceability and scalability.

This is why, during the conception of the CMP ELVCD, the focus was not on yet another extra-low voltage drive, but rather on creating a complete industry-standard, decentralized servo drive with all the characteristics of an SEW-EURODRIVE servo gearmotor.

For this reason the CMP ELVCD is fully integrated into our automation system with MOVI‑PLC. It can be used for all automation tasks with dynamic and precise motion sequences up to 500 W.

Multi and single-level shuttle systems in container logistics

The CMP ELVCD is used as drive for telescopes and conveyor belts for the automation of entire load handling devices. The drives are controlled via a moving control cabinet or via a completely decentralized unit. This allows for the implementation of compact, flexible logistics applications.

AGVS and logistics vehicles

Depending on the performance data of the vehicles, the drives can be used as travel drives and lifting drives as well as load handling devices. This technology can be combined with MOVIPRO decentralized drive, positioning and application controllers and MOVITRANS contactless energy transfer systems to create an attractive overall solution.

Gripper and handling units

Combined with our conventional servo drives such as the MOVIAXIS multi-axis servo inverter, the CMP ELVCD is perfectly suited to reduce weight and optimize the cabling, especially for mobile gripper and handling units. It can be controlled directly via a MOVI‑PLC motion and logic controller.

Installation topology with the CMP ELVCD decentralized extra-low voltage servo drive

  • CMP ELVCD is supplied with DC 24 V (control) and DC 48 V (power).
  • A controller from SEW­EURODRIVE, which functions as central head station via SBus, is used to control the drive.
  • The controller is responsible for the coordination and the higher-level motion control for all connected drives.
  • Depending on the power demands and the synchronicity of the drives, several drives can be connected and supplied via one phase winding.
  • The controllers used offer conventional interfaces for higher-level automation levels. The automation system can also be operated independently as a module.

DanfossWith more than one million square feet of exhibit and meeting space, the LEED Platinum-certified Enercare Centre at Exhibition Place in Toronto, Ontario, is the ninth-largest convention centre in North America. Located on the shores of Lake Ontario, the convection centre experiences the extreme weather that the Great Lakes region is known for – with temperatures ranging from -31°C (-24°F) to 40°C (105°F).

That puts a big burden on Exhibition Place’s HVAC equipment to keep the pace comfortable for more than 5.5 million visitors attending meetings, conventions, and exhibitions throughout the year.

Motor Feature

50 HP 1-to-3 Microgrid Power Source Single Phase Power Solutions introduces the 50 HP 1-to-3 Microgrid Power Source featuring a patented BELLE Motor with Written-Pole technology to deliver three-phase power from single-phase utility service. The 50 HP 1-to-3 can be used to operate a 25 HP motor three-phase motor, and multiple other motors up the remaining 25 HP of capacity. Ideal for areas without three-phase service, this revolutionary approach eliminates the high fuel and maintenance costs, and the pollution of fossil-fuel-powered Gen-Sets, while delivering superior power quality to that of a conventional phase converter.  It is far more cost effective than extending 3-phase power where it is not currently available.
