IE4 motor slashes energy consumption by up to 50%

IE4 motor slashes energy consumption by up to 50% SEW Eurodrive has launched a new Super Premium Efficiency motor in the IE4 class that can cut energy consumption by up to 50 percent over conventional designs. The new DRC permanent-field synchronous motor contains integrated drive electronics in an enclosed housing and is designed for flexibility so that it can be directly mounted to various gear unit types such as helical, parallel-shaft helical and helical-bevel via a flange and pinion shaft.

The new motor compliments Movigear, the company's mechatronic drive system, by making its phenomenal energy saving technology available to users of standard gearboxes. It can be supplied with new product or it can be used as a retrofit on applications with existing geared motors driven by traditional motor technologies.

The new DRC motor is available in two sizes, 1.5kw and 0.55kw, supplementing the company's product portfolio of mechatronic drive systems. The new motor has a nominal speed of 2000rpm, with IP65 and IP66 degrees of protection and a 250% overload capacity. It fits onto standard SEW gearboxes from the R, F, K and W ranges, and can be supplied on its own with an IEC shaft and flange.

The flexibility of the DRC motor makes it perfect for use in a wide range of applications including logistics, airport logistics, automotive manufacture, food and drinks manufacturing, and construction equipment. It is the optimal, energy efficient solution for belt, chain and link-belt conveyors and by adding an optional brake it is suitable for use with inclining tracks and hoists.
