Servo motors with maximum torque density
B&R Industrial Automation Posted 02/08/2018
Dynamic powerhouse added to B&R's servo motor lineup
B&R has taken the next step in development of its 8LS servo motors. Three newly designed size 5 motors in lengths A, B and C fill out the mid-range of the 8LS product line. Compared to their predecessors, they offer more compact dimensions and improved thermal design.
High dynamics and strong performance
The new 8LS servo motors are highly dynamic and offer a high torque-overload ratio. They are per-fectly suited for applications such as plastics processing, printing presses and servo pumps. With a flange size of 142 mm, the new motors deliver excellent torque density. Customers profit from more power with smaller space requirements. They can be combined with any of B&R's many gearbox options and shipped as pre-assembled motor-gearbox combinations.
All motors from the 8LS series are offered with an optional digital encoder and optional safety functions. For the majority of speed variants, motors up to size 7 are also available with a single-cable solution that combines the cables for the motor and encoder. This reduces cabling to a minimum and substantially re-duces installation costs.
