System provider ABM Greiffenberger presented powerful drive technology for intralogistics at LogiMAT in Stuttgart. As a project partner from development to start-up, the company offers industry- and customer-specific solutions for numerous application cases. Motor-mounted drive controllers in the series INVEOR MP and MP Modular were new. They feature impressively fast system integration, energy-efficient operation and easy handling.
The new controllers can be easily combined with asynchronous and Sinochron motors as well as with all gearboxes from ABM Greiffenberger. The special technology enables a speed control range of 1:200. A big advantage here is the unique mode of operation: the large control range is possible sensorless. This saves the user costs and significantly increases equipment availability.
The drive system offers numerous advantages in warehouse logistics. It can be configured in such a way that external connections as well as supply or control lines are all plug-in. Therefore installation can be accomplished quickly and smoothly saving the user money: no costly experts are needed. The system is particularly beneficial for applications such as modular warehouse logistic systems that are rearranged regularly.
Smart features such as a Bluetooth interface enable comfortable start-up and control via an app simplifies handling. This makes the drive system an optimal solution for applications in tight spaces whereby a cable connection for parameterisation is not feasible. The app also allows easy transfer of settings to other devices. The solution from ABM Greiffenberger is of modular design so customer specific configurations can be realised at any time. Optional fieldbus systems are also available. They assure the connectivity and prepare the drive system to meet the Industry 4.0 requirements.
The sensorless motor control and expanded speed control range of the INVEOR MP ensure optimal efficiency with minimal energy consumption in every application. It meets protection class IP 65 and also works reliably under tough conditions. The unique feature of the MP Modular version is its smart power section containing already all essential control characteristics in the power electronics. This lowers the costs for the user: no application board is needed. This version can be equipped and configured with various modules. The module carrier even offers the possibility of mechanically integrating customer supplied electronics. It can also be used for factory provided options such as I/O modules or a main disconnects. More installation space for additional components is also available.
System Integration with Added Value
The drive system from ABM Greiffenberger ensures a perfect performance in numerous applications. It is powerful, energy-efficient and conserves resources. From specification to production, the company assumes full system responsibility and integration. This makes optimal facility availability possible for the user. The drive specialist is a complete supplier with a high level of consultation and development expertise. All products are offered from a single source. With additive manufacturing even complex prototypes can be quickly produced in Marktredwitz. Modern testing technologies, motor dynos and a laboratory for materials analysis ensure high quality in design and engineering already at the development stage. ABM Greiffenberger has always maintained close customer relationships and conducts intense market monitoring. Based on its extensive and modular portfolio, tailored space- and cost-optimised systems with maximum benefit to the user arise.
