HANNOVER MESSE: SEW EURODRIVE Develops New Adapters for Asynchronous and Synchronous Motors

Motor adapters are most commonly used when customers want to or have to use a motor without an SEW/LIA interface, or when the system operator’s number one priority is rapid replacement without opening the gear unit. In the latter case, SEW motors are also often mounted via an adapter.

If an adapter is used between the gear unit and motor, the additional length is a key factor in the purchase decision, especially in the machine automation context.

SEW EURODRIVE has redeveloped its adapter series with the aim of significantly reducing this length, which has also resulted in further benefits for users. The new series – AMS.. (for mounting IEC and NEMA motors) and AQS.. (for mounting servomotors) – make it easier for customers to fit motors. Thanks to new adapter variants, AQS.. adapters can be used to mount a wider range of market-standard synchronous motors. AMS.. adapters, meanwhile, can optionally be equipped with a condensation drain hole or reinforced bearing.

User benefits of AQS.. adapters
• Up to 53 percent shorter than previous AQ.. adapters
• Reduced weight
• AQSH.. coupling with spreading function for quicker and easier motor installation by the customer
• Motors can be removed even if the input and output are blocked
• Full compatibility with the current AQ.. adapter
• New adapter variants for connecting further market-standard servomotors
• Claw coupling for thermal length compensation

User benefits of AMS.. adapters
• Up to 37 percent shorter than existing AM.. adapters, with simplified motor installation for AMS.. adapters (NEMA) and also sizes AMS225.. (IEC) and AMS250..(IEC)
• New LIA105 basic flange for combinations, including with the R..07/R..17 small helical gear units
• New options with condensation drain hole (/DH) and reinforced bearing available
• Fully compatible and interchangeable with existing AM.. adapters

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
