B&R Automation 8LS Servomotors Offer Maximum Torque Density
February 13, 2018—
New lengths available for size 5 motors round off the 8LS line of servo motors with powerful, dynamic performance.
B&R has taken the next step in development of its 8LS servomotors. 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.
The new 8LS servomotors are highly dynamic and offer a high torque-overload ratio. They are perfectly 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 reduces installation costs.
