Delivery release for option Q25 fan connection NDE or ABOVE with M16x1.5 for SIMOTICS M-1PH8 motors

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
With immediate effect, the modular kit for SIMOTICS M-1PH8 main motors, shaft heights 100, 132 and 160, comprises the new option Q25 to increase the flexibility when setting up an electric connection of the third-party fan. This option allows to connect the fan in the outlet direction NDE or ABOVE.

Advantages and benefits

Under reduced space conditions, the standard cable outlet of the third-party fan in the radial direction can be represent an interfering contour in the machine, together with cable gland and bending radius. With the option Q25, we now offer a solution for applications requiring a minimum installation space. In some cases, the space required for the motor can be reduced by more than 50 mm (incl. bending radius of the fan connection cable); the cover of the fan terminal box defines the outlet directions NDE or ABOVE (s. dimension sheet Q25_Massblatt.pdf (617.3 KB)).

During the installation, the outlet direction can be flexibly chosen (replacement plug M16x1.5 by the corresponding cable gland).

Please ensure that, when ordering SIMOTICS M-1PH8 motors, the 15th place of the article number = E, F, G and H (power connector) of the third-party fans is without plug connection.

This will be entered in CAD Creator by the end of 11/2016.

In the SIZER, the option Q25 will be provided as from the new version.
