CHICAGO — After considerable research and product refinement, as well as extensive field contacts with end-users, Siemens Industry, Inc. introduced today the new 1PH8 family of high-performance induction motor drives and servomotors. Available in a wide power range, from 2.8 kW up to 1340 kW, these new motors provide excellent dynamic response, smoother operation and lower vibration levels.
This new line combines induction and high-powered servo technologies to give machine designers and end-users a greater degree of efficiency and more precision in the production process. A single stator and rotor design enables the modular adaptation of the many motor options to provide design flexibility and cost containment.
Designed for the specific performance and environmental requirements of a main spindle on a CNC-equipped machine tool, these new Siemens induction motors have myriad applications in other heavy-duty markets, such as print unit drives on printing presses; rolls and web handling on converting and packaging machinery; crane and hoist elevation; extruders and injection molding machines; metal-forming and welding machinery; assembly line robotic articulation; materials handling gantries and more.
The modular motor platform concept offers designers various options for selecting the optimum unit for an application:
The 1PH8 motor spindle line is fully compatible with the popular Siemens Sinamics® S120 drives platform to achieve faster commissioning and improved control response. All motors in this new family feature the Drive-Cliq® serial interface and electronic nameplate recognition for plug-n-play start-up.
Earlier families of Siemens motor designs can be upgraded to the new 1PH8 series without difficulty, including the 1PH7, 1PL6, 1PH4, 1PM4, 1PM6 and the upper range of the 1FT6.
