Modular motor system increases energy efficiency, performance

SEW-EURODRIVE Inc., a global supplier of drive automation solutions, announces the release of its new DR motor modular system, offering end users a single series with millions of drive combinations. Available February 1, 2010, the modular DR motor is well suited for almost any industry. The modular system allows users to specify exactly those options needed for any given application.

Users in food, beverage, water, and wastewater will find that the coating and sealing options keep these motors protected in wet environments in a wide range of temperatures. Automotive manufacturers rely on the many connector options to save time and ensure accuracy in installation and replacement. The variety of sensor and feedback options for speed, position, and even brake wear are suited for sophisticated electronic drive control systems found in packaging and logistics applications in many industries. Maintenance-friendly modular brakes, encoders, and other options make retrofits and other field adjustments simple and fast in any market.

The DR motor meets and exceeds international energy standards and comes in three efficiency levels: DRS Standard Efficiency (IE1), DRE High Efficiency (IE2), and DRP Premium Efficiency (IE3), which meets EISA 2007 and NEMA Premium standards for the U.S. and other energy standards in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. In addition to energy efficiency options, the DR motor also offers other customizable options, including brake size, cost-optimized encoders, and mounting type. Providing simple configuration and ordering, the DR motor saves space and costs due to its compact design and also promotes an extended life from an environmental and regulatory perspective.
