MICRO-DRIVE accessories

The MICRO-DRIVE servo drive system can be combined with motors and connecting cables of selected Siemens product partners

In order to meet as many customer requirements as possible in the field of drive technology, Siemens relies on the individual and complementary products of selected partners for the motors and connecting cables of this servo drive system. As a result, an optimal combination of the best products from Siemens and our partners in the Siemens Product Partner Program is available to our customers.

Product Partners are external companies outside of Siemens AG and its affiliated companies. Information and descriptions of products from Product Partners are non-binding, and are the responsibility of the Product Partners. These products are manufactured independently by the relevant Product Partner on its own responsibility, and are distributed and delivered under its general terms and conditions of business and delivery. Unless compulsory by law, Siemens assumes no liability or warranty for these products or for the connection with these products of the Product Partners.


This information and the descriptions have been compiled with great care. However, it is not possible for Siemens to check the completeness, correctness and currentness of the data supplied by Product Partners. The possibility that individual items of information might be incorrect, incomplete, or not up-to-date cannot therefore be ruled out. Unless compulsory by law, Siemens assumes no liability for the usability of the data or of the products for the user per se.
