Optimised for pharmaceuticals and food

Siemens is adding new servo motors to the proven Sinamics S210 single-cable servo drive system, thereby expanding the range of applications. Especially for use in the pharmaceutical and food industries, the company is launching the Simotics S-1FS2, a motor version with a stainless steel housing, the highest degree of protection IP67/IP69 and high-resolution 22-bit absolute multiturn encoders.

The servo motor thus fulfils all hygienic conditions and can be used for mixing and stirring, air-conditioning and ventilating, dosing and filling as well as conveying, packaging and storing a wide variety of end products in the food and beverage sector and in the pharmaceutical industry.

The new Simotics S-1FK2 servo planetary geared motors also complement the Sinamics S210 drive system. They are used when high cycle rates are to be achieved with a lightweight and low-inertia gear design, or when inertia matching is required to move heavy loads precisely. The motors are available ready-assembled and as a unit in a wide range of gear ratios and sizes, allowing them to be optimally adapted to different applications. The thermal design is carried out via the digital twin in the TIA (Totally Integrated Automation) Selection Tool.

With the new Simotics S-1FT2, Siemens is launching a servo motor that offers a variety of different options for the Sinamics S210 servo drive system. For example, encoders with a resolution of up to 26 bits improve system accuracy, and the high IP67 protection rating and various motor paint finishes make the solution suitable for use in harsher environments. In addition, new machine options, such as higher rated speeds, are available for extended use.

The Sinamics S210 servo drive system consists of a servo inverter and servo motor. All motors of the servo system are connected via a cable that combines power wires, encoder signal and brake in one cable. The range of applications includes highly dynamic servo solutions such as those found in handling systems, packaging machines and applications in mechanical engineering. To meet the high demands on motion control functionality in these applications, for example dynamic positioning, gear synchronisation or cam plates with multiple axes, the system works perfectly with the Simatic S7-1500 controller via Profinet IRT.
