I have a question regarding the use of non-standard motors for external axes. So far, Kuka (UK) has not been able to answer my question .
The smallest compatible servo motor offered by KUKA is MG_8_40_45_S0 (Art No. 00-131-269).
This motor is basically a Siemens 1FK7 motor (exact part No. is 1FK7022-5AK71-1YH3-Z S24).
Looking at the 1FK7 data sheet (attached) …
There is a smaller motor (20 mm shaft height) within the range: 1FK7015-5AK7. This is the size I want to use. It also is rated for 600 VDC.
Question: can this motor be used in combination with the KUKA Servo Drives (KSD) (KSPsr12 / KSP20 / KSP40)?
I found a document on using non-standard motors with KRC-2 (MotorenSpec V2.4en_23_04_2003.doc)? Is there a similar document available for KRC-5 (have the requirements changed?). Does the 1FK7015-5AK7 satisfy these requirements?
In general, I need a 40 mm frame servo that can be used as an external axis (i.e. kinematically integrated). There will actually be up to 5 external axes for this application. Can anyone suggest a solution?
