Plug-and-play servomotors - Siemens

May 28, 2010
Air-cooled, water-cooled, and forced-ventilated versions are available.

1FT7 servomotors are 30% shorter and have a 4x overload capacity for higher dynamic response. Rigid, vibration-insulated encoder mounts reduce maintenance and let users exchange the encoders, which have resolution up to 22 bits, in the field without an alignment step.
The DRIVE-CLiQ digital encoder interface doesn't need manual parameterization of the axis; the drive reads data from the electronic nameplate stored in the encoder system. The interface further permits use of a standardized cable type for all feedbacks.
The servomotors are forced ventilated, water-cooled, or convection air-cooled. A new high dynamic design with very low rotor inertia is available.
