Lenze's m350 Smart Gear is a new compact mechatronic drive package designed specifically for carton and tote conveyor systems. It provides compact dimensions with standard mountings, highest efficiency and ready availability — cost-savings result from simple wiring, smaller panel sizes and a zero maintenance requirement.
The m350 Smart Gear is a genuine integrated mechatronic solution consisting of a gearbox, motor, electronic drive and software. The gearbox is integrated into the motor giving smooth lines and highly compact dimensions — the situation is similar for the drive electronics and software, with which up to five motor speeds can be easily and precisely set with a user-friendly smartphone app and NFC contactless connection.
Speeds from 42 to 216rpm can be freely selected at the gearbox output, all with the same rated torque plus a 400 per cent starting boost, making the machine design easier as a single drive can handle a wide range of loads and speeds. The Lenze Smart Motor electronics are controlled simply with three digital inputs.
This new drive is offered in three sizes with output torques of 25, 50 and 75Nm, suiting conveyor loads up to 350kg. With just two levels — the standard model and a one with a holding brake — six versions cover a wide solution spectrum in horizontal material handling.
