Up to 40,000 rpm – highest performance asynchronous induction and main spindle motor solutions

SIMOTICS M Main Motors

Widely used, asynchronous induction motors are a preferred choice for a spectrum of industrial applications due to their rugged construction, absence of brushes, and the ability to control the motor speed. Compact, with high-power density, Siemens high-performance induction motors are almost maintenance-free and feature an optional integrated, high-resolution measuring system for high-end speed and position control.

SIMOTICS M-1PH8

Packing all the strength, flexibility, and durability you need into one efficient box

Based on a universal design succeeding the predecessor high-performance induction motor families — 1PH7, 1PH4, 1PL6, 1PM4 and 1PM6 — in one platform, the 1PH8 family replaces these products with full compatibility and even wider power and speed range.
simotics 1ph8 motors in asynchronous and synchronous versions

The two faces of 1PH8

SIMOTICS 1PH8 motors are available in both asynchronous induction and sychronous servomotor versions, offering significant advantages in both fields.

Powerful features & flexible configuration options

Compared to standard and trans norm NEMA and IEC motors, the 1PH8 motors are optimized for high-end motion control tasks utilizing variable speed drives. To achieve outstanding performance in these applications, the 1PH8 is about 30 to 40 percent smaller, resulting in lower rotor inertia and better dynamic response times.

 

The rated speed range of up to 6,000 rpm is enhanced with field weakening (constant power) all the way up to 20,000 rpm. The very rugged 1PH8 motors are available in IP rating 55 and 65 with a high overload capability (up to 3 times rated torque) and rotatable connectors (in the lower shaft heights) or terminal boxes.
