Motion Control: For optimal standardization, the simple and versatile smart motor is fully programmable from a smartphone and blends the simplicity of an ac motor with the technical benefits of an electronic drive control. This is a Control Engineering 20Designed for applications ranging from material handling to packaging automation, the innovative Smart Motor blends the simplicity of a conventional ac motor with electronic drive control technology. The Smart Motor allows power and freedom in motion control, with freely adjustable speeds, programmable I/O and integrated functions for conveying needs. Fully programmable from a smart phone, the Smart Motor makes commissioning and diagnosis easier than ever.

Offering a highly versatile and powerful package, the Smart Motor delivers maximum standardization-drastically reducing (by up to 70%) 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.
