The Siemens Drive Technologies Division (www.siemens.com) has released the latest 1FK7 servo motor series which has been optimized and extended for standard motion applications.
The 1FK7 series’ basic “Compact” models provide a vast array of versions and sizes that caters to all drive tasks. Its “High Dynamic” version delivers reduced rotor inertia, providing an optimum and efficient solution for tasks that require low load inertia and maximum dynamics. Offering the benefits of “High Inertia” design, Siemens delivers above-average control properties and optimum dynamics via high rotor inertia for motion control tasks that demands high load inertia. The series’ innovative design reinforces the trend toward increasingly serviceable and compact, maximum efficiency motor solutions.
With the encoder integrated with DRIVE-CLiQ interface, the 1FK7 motors now offer a low disturbing contour and a more compact package. The 1FK7 motors has also been specifically redesigned to provide a higher degree of ruggedness against shock load and vibration. Its thermal decoupling capabilities have been enhanced to achieve higher rated torques in certain versions.
Boasting maximum energy efficiency, the 1FK7 motors delivers up to 94 percent efficiency levels. To achieve the best efficiency range, project engineers can select from the series’ extensive portfolio of rated speeds that offers optimally adapted winding design. Aside from the motor’s energy savings benefits, it also offers lower system costs, thanks to the availability of smaller Sinamics converter modules and connection system.
