The AM8300 servomotors expand the Beckhoff portfolio to include a modular motor series with integrated water cooling. Due to the efficient cooling, an extremely high power density is achieved, so that a rated power of up to 40 kW can be delivered in the smallest installation space, depending on the size.

Compared to similar conventional convection-cooled motors, the standstill torque is three times higher.

In terms of technology, the AM8300 series is based on the tried-andtested AM8000 series and its advantageous modular system with its wide range of options and consistent availability. The servomotors offer maximum dynamics, as the torque increases with water cooling, but the rotor moment of inertia remains constant.

These are particularly suitable for applications with higher speed and torque requirements. Five flange codes, each with three lengths – with standstill torques from 5.1 to 274 Nm – cover an extremely wide range of applications. The AM8300 motors can optionally be equipped with a backlash-free permanent magnet holding brake, shaft seal and keyway.

Depending on the size, they are available with various feedback systems such as resolvers or batteryless single and multiturn encoders with One Cable Technology (OCT) or Hiperface.

With its water cooling system and high IP65 protection rating, the AM8300 is also suitable for demanding environmental conditions – particularly those with high ambient temperatures.

Depending on the size, the AM8300 is equipped with a 1/8” or 1/4” thread for connecting the cooling circuit.
