Most of us know and understand that you need to use model numbers to find the right Fanuc Servo motor for your machine. When your machine goes down do you know, or wonder, what the model number means? That model number gets you the perfect Fanuc Servo Motor to get you back up and running.
The model number is an interesting study, and it gives clues on how your motor is constructed. We’re going to tell you exactly what each section means.
Take the Fanuc Alpha Series Servo Motor, for example. These motors start with A06B at the beginning.
Here’s the model number breakdown:
In the second section, the two positions (♦ ♦) indicate the physical length your motor. For the Fanuc Alpha Series Servo Motor, there are many different servo motor lengths; however, there are nine motor lengths we will focus on, which are listed below.
- 42: Model α 12/2000
- 43: Model α 12/3000
- 46: Model α 22/1500
- 48: Model α 22/3000
- 51: Model α 30/1200
- 52: Model α 30/2000
- 53: Model α 30/3000
- 57: Model α 40/2000
- 58: Model α 40/2000 (with fan)
In the third section, the second position (■) refers to your motors shaft brake options. There are four different brake options for this servo motor model: 0, 1, 5, or 6. The different brake options and meanings are listed below.
- 0: Straight Shaft (Standard)
- 1: Straight Shaft with Brake (35 Nm)
- 5: Taper Shaft
- 6: Taper Shaft with Brake (35 Nm)
The last two positions, together, in the third section (♣ ♣) tell your servo motors feedback options. For this servo motor, there are four different feedback options: 75, 77, 84 or 88.
- 75: With the Pulse Coder α A64
- 77: With the Pulse Coder α I64
- 84: With the Serial Pulse Coder α A
- 88: With the Serial Pulse Coder α A1000
At the end of the model number, you may see a # symbol followed by a number; this addition to the model number tells if the motor is sealed or unsealed and if the motor has a keyway in the shaft or not. If there is not a # symbol followed by a number after the model number, by default, #0000 or #7000 will be attached to the model number. The different options are listed below.
- #7000 Unsealed motor without a keyway in the shaft
- #0000 Unsealed motor without a keyway in the shaft
- #7008 Unsealed Motor with a keyway in the shaft
- #0008 Unsealed motor with a keyway in the shaft
- #7075 Sealed motor without a keyway in the shaft
- #0075 Sealed motor without a keyway in the shaft
- #7076 Sealed motor with a keyway in the shaft
- #0076 Sealed motor with a keyway in the shaft
