Allen-Bradley: Food-grade servo motor
The Allen-Bradley® Kinetix® 5500 VPF food-grade motor is a compact, single-cable servo motor that, when paired with the Kinetix 5500 servo drive, helps engineers conserve panel space and reduce inventory.
Its IP67-rated, white, food-grade paint with stainless-steel shaft and fasteners is ideally suited for packaging applications in food and beverage manufacturing facilities. In addition, its scalability helps accommodate a wide range of induction and servo drives, including 200- and 400-volt class applications.
The Kinetix 5500 VPF food-grade motor features windings that match drive ratings for efficient system sizing, energy efficiency and lowered cost. It is also available in six frame sizes, from 63 mm to 165 mm – an excellent option for engineers looking to reduce overall machine footprint and to help optimize power density. The motor connects to the drive using a single-cable that includes feedback, motor brake and motor power to simplify installation and reduce spare parts.
