Drives made easy! Our decentralized standard inverter MOVIFIT® FC in the classic function level design provides a wide range of drive functions. Everything is possible from simple speed control to the operation of simple lifting axes. Comprehensive safety functions and operation on virtually all common fieldbus systems for use in a broad range of applications.

Save energy and operate your plant efficiently. Combine our MOVIFIT® FC with our DRU..J series (IE4 motors) energy efficient motors and an efficient brake control.

No startup is needed for simple applications. Simple DIP switches make the relevant settings following which the inverter is immediately ready for use. It is controlled via the PLC using standardized process data profiles. Our "MOVIFIT® Gateway Configurator" provides you with simple configuration and diagnostics options even for more complex applications.

Our standard inverter MOVIFIT® FC has more than just internal strengths. The high degree of protection IP65 is standard. Its robust aluminum die cast housing is divided into electronics unit (EBOX) and connection unit (ABOX). A major benefit is the closing mechanism with only one screw and the automatic unit replacement. This enables quick assembly and smooth unit replacement for servicing.

Save costs and time on installation as well. The integrated T distributor for energy and communication, the integrated repair switch and digital IOs means that a wide variety of external additional components are no longer required for the installation.

The HygienicPlus design for use in extreme ambient conditions, for example in wet conditions in the beverage industry, are also available as standard.

Connection variants

The inverter consists of an electronics unit (EBOX) and the connection unit shown here (ABOX). The MOVIFIT® connection box (ABOX) is a large connector and is entirely passive. The closing mechanism with only a single screw ensures fast assembly and smooth unit replacement for maintenance. It is available in two designs:

MOVIFIT® standard connection box

All cables to be connected are routed into the ABOX via cable glands and wired to terminals at this point.

MOVIFIT® hybrid connection box

The MOVIFIT® hybrid connection box (ABOX) offers the option of making various connections as a plug. All cables for power supply and the motor cables are routed into the ABOX via cable glands and wired to terminals at this point. M12 connectors are provided for digital inputs and outputs. The bus system can be connected via connectors. The bus connectors vary depending on the fieldbus used.

Functional safety

Functional safety: safetyDRIVE

Monitor and react in safety! From safe disconnection (STO) to speed-dependent safety functions (SDI, SLS). Our distributor is also available in conjunction with MOVIMOT® in various safety-related specifications and options.

Functions can be controlled via safe terminals as well as via PROFISAFE. In independent operation our safety options S12 can undertake a local evaluation, processing and disconnection of safety-related signals and functions. A higher-level safety controller is not required in independent operation.


is our contribution to your plant and machine safety. In addition to functionally safe drive technology, we are offering various safety services. safetyDRIVE not only helps you to prevent accidents, but also reduces costs in safety zones and increases productivity.
