New motor generation
B&R’s liquid-cooled, 3-phase, synchronous motors feature high power density with compact outer dimensions that enable machine manufacturers to create efficient and economical solutions.
Integrated water cooling enables more compact sizes and prevents the machine or switching cabinet from overheating. Without the need for noisy cooling fans, the machine saves energy and space. Life span increases because motor parts, except for bearings, are free of wear, while installation is simplified by intelligent connection technology for power and encoder connections using circular connectors or terminal boxes. The 8KS series motors are available in 4 sizes with a rated speed of 1,100 1/min to 2,200 1/min and a maximum speed of 4,500 to 10,000 1/min. The rated torque is between 8.3 Nm and 605 Nm. Motors can be controlled with ACOPOS or ACOPOSmulti servo drives.
