The 1FT7 family of high-performance servomotors provides short machine cycles through a 30% shorter design and 4× overload capacity over previous servos. Vibration-insulated encoder mounting lets users exchange the encoder in the field in less than 5 min, without encoder alignment. High-resolution encoders, currently up to 22-bit, make these servos highly precise.

The servomotors features Drive-CLiQ, the company’s electronic nameplate and digital encoder interface that simplifies start-up or replacement. The drive reads all that data from the electronic nameplate stored in the encoder system, essentially making them plug-and-play devices. The drive automatically recognizes the motor and optimizes the parameterization accordingly.
The motors are available in forced ventilated, water-cooled types, as well as a high dynamic design, which features very low rotor inertia.
