Wash-Down Capable Servo Motors

New AM8800 staBeckhofff.jpginless steel wash-down servo motors are implemented completely in a food-grade design. They can be used in extremely harsh or corrosive environments and are particularly suitable for use in the food, chemical or pharmaceutical industries. AM8000 series motors need only one motor cable instead of the usual two. The feedback cable is eliminated, since the encoder information is transmitted digitally via two cores of the motor cable. All AM8000 servo motors are equipped with a sensor for temperature monitoring, which passes the data on to the drive via the single cable. The data can be processed in the higher-level controller in such a way that the motor can be intelligently controlled in relation to its temperature. AM8800 motors can be provided with a sealing air connection in order to prevent the formation of condensation inside the motor. They can also be equipped with a holding brake or a multi-turn encoder, depending on the application requirements.
