Siemens Drive Technologies Division is presenting a new series of electric motors at the 2008 SPS/IPC/Drives show. The 1PH8 series is designed for universal use in various motion control applications. Based on a flexible modular system, the motors are available both in an asynchronous and a compact synchronous version, either with forced ventilation or water cooling.
The motors are available as main drives with outputs of 2.8-1340kW. Extensive function expansions such as various bearing designs widen the scope of applications. Typical applications of the motors are main drives in presses and extruders, converting applications, eccentric rotational axes in the paper and printing industry and cranes.
