Siemens: Servomotors

Highly-configurable to suit a wide variety of applications, Generation II Simotics 1FK7 servomotors from Siemens feature seven shaft heights, Quick-Connect power connector, and high-accuracy 20- and 24-bit field replaceable encoders in 10 styles, all combined with a four-week lead time.

Pw 55467 Siemens 1fk7 Gen Ii Servomotor

The Generation II servomotor offers three inertia versions — standard, high-dynamic for rapid acceleration jobs, and high-inertia for maximum smooth running.  These motors are designed for operation without external cooling and the heat is dissipated through the motor surface.  With 10 styles of field-replaceable encoders, the 1FK7 Generation II servomotors provide easy maintenance in the field, with reduced downtime and operating cost savings.  A 10% improvement in continuous (S-1) power is achieved since the encoders are mechanically and thermally decoupled from the motor.  The mechanical decoupling also means the encoder is more resistant to vibration conditions on the machine.  In addition, there is no need for battery back-up on the absolute encoders. 

Generation II Simotics 1FK7 servomotors provide users with  3x overload; 2.5% torque ripple; cross profiling for easier mounting; Siemens Drive-Cliq interface for easier field commissioning; unit recognition with the Siemens Sinamics S120 drive family; plain shaft or keyway design; three IP ratings; and are supplied with or without holding brake. 

The leadtime will ultimately reduced to three-weeks beginning January 1, 2014 on all models.
