Announcement of product phase out (P.M400) for the main motors SIMOTICS M-1PH7 – shaft heights 100 up to160

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
Based on the migration roadmap for SIMOTICS M main motors, for 1PH7 main motors in shaft heights 100 up to 160, the announcement for product phaseout (P.M400) became effective on April 1, 2014.

Generally, the phase-out period for these main motors is 18 months (up to September 30, 2015) – and is intended to give users time to switch over to the successor product 1PH8. For these main motors, the product cancellation (P.M410) is scheduled for October 1, 2015. From October 1, 2015, the 1PH7 main motors involved will only be available to maintain a stock of replacement motors.

Corresponding to this roadmap, for new plants and systems, a check should be made at an early stage as to whether it already makes sense to switch over to the new 1PH8 main motors. To do this, the article conversion tool can be simply used, for instance. Please contact your local Siemens office.
