Siemens Industry Inc. offers the new SIMOTICS S-1FS2 servomotors for food, beverage, sterile packaging, pharmaceutical and other process applications. The stainless steel housings are suited to the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness and are available in three sizes, from 0.45 to 2kW (0.60 to 2.68 horsepower) with torque from 3.1 to 14 Nm (2.28 to 10.32 foot-pounds), the company says. Crafted with housings of 1.4404 (AISI 316/316L) stainless steel, EPDM seals and bearing grease with NSF H1 approval, these new servomotors are highly resistant to corrosion and acidic chemicals found in process industries. Additionally, the extremely high degree of protection is in accordance with IP66/67 standards on the entire motor, with IP69k (30-bar) protection provided on the motor housing. Added features included are high dynamics due to low inherent inertia plus high overload capacity for use in pick-and-place applications, plus precise movement of heavy loads, it says. The SIMOTICS S-1FS2 family of motors is suitable for clean-in-place (CIP) processes and for use with all commercially available cleaning agents used with washdown motors. The motors are especially designed for the 3-A (U.S.) and EHEDG (Euro) requirements of the food and beverage industries.
