Stainless Steel Servo Motor
By Design Engineering StaffGeneral Beckhoff motor
Beckhoff’s wash-down AM8800 Series servomotors feature single cable technology.
Beckhoff Automation has introduced its AM8800 stainless steel servo motor series with single cable technology with a stainless steel finish. The otherwise necessary feedback cable is eliminated, since the encoder information is transmitted digitally via two cores of the motor cable. The motor is supplemented by an all-stainless-steel housing in AISI 316L, which was designed according to FDA guidelines, and a stainless steel motor shaft. The series encompasses three sizes, with a power range from 1 to 8 Nm standstill torque. The stainless steel housing is equipped with IP 67 protection, optionally also in IP 69K rating. AM8800 motors can be provided with a sealing air connection to prevent condensation inside the motor.
