Siemens’ Generation II Simotics 1FK7 servomotors are configured to suit a wide variety of applications. The motors 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. The Generation II servomotor offers three inertia versions: standard, high-dynamic for rapid acceleration jobs, and high-inertia for 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. In addition, there is no need for battery backup on the absolute encoders. Generation II Simotics 1FK7 servomotors provide users with 3x overload, 2.5% torque ripple, and cross profiling for easier mounting.
