A higher rotor inertia version of the 1FK7 servomotor family has the control response suitable for high- and variable-load inertia applications, including packaging equipment. These self-cooled 1FK7-HI servomotors have stall torque in the 3 to 20 Nm range and are offered in IP64 or IP65 with IP67 flange protection, with selectable options for a plain or keyed shaft, holding brake, 22-bit incremental or absolute encoders, as well as 18 color options.
A mechanical decoupler between the motor and encoder shaft protects the encoder from mechanical vibrations. In cases where the encoder needs to be exchanged, the device automatically aligns the encoder signal to the rotor pole position, enabling feedback devices to be changed in the field in less than five minutes.
These servomotors also feature the Drive-Cliq® serial bus and electronic nameplate recognition, allowing plug-n-play operation when paired to the Sinamics® S drive platform. All servomotors in this new line are also configured to interface with Siemens Sinumerik® CNC technology for machine tool applications and the motion controller Simotion® for general motion control use. Selecting the proper motor to suit the application is facilitated by the Siemens Sizer® toolbox and compatible 3D CAD model-generating CAD-Creator package.
