Getting to Know MSK Servomotors

servomotor-washdown-by-barkThe MSK line of servomotors is a compact but powerful line of servomotors that come with a set of features useful for applications that require both power and accuracy. MSK servomotors have a wide range of power options that make it a highly versatile series of motors. The MSK series also comes in a wide variety of sizes, making it perfect for a wide range of applications.

For precision, different encoders can be used with the MSK servomotors for increased accuracy. But this also means that when encoders wear out, there can be accuracy problems in applications that require a high degree of precision. Encoders are extremely fragile because they are made of glass. Over time, even in the best conditions, they can wear out and start to create small inaccuracies. Eventually, if they go without service, it can mean bigger problems.

One of the best parts of the IndraDyn S MSK series of servomotors is that they are highly protected with a IP65 rating. IP ratings describe ingress protection from both intrusion from dust, fingers, and other objects and water. The first digit, in this case a 6, describes the intrusion protection. 6 denotes that MSK servomotors are dust tight, meaning dust cannot get inside the motor. The second digit, in this case a 5, describes the water protection level. 5 means that MSK motors can be washed with water jets not exceeding 30 kPa at a distance of at least 3mm for three minutes at a rate of no more than 12.5 liters per minute. MSK motors are perfect for conditions that are dusty or require wash downs. Because MSK motors are water resistant and dust tight, they’re great servomotors to use in conditions that require cooling with liquids.

Since MSK motors are often used in highly demanding conditions that require great accuracy, MSK servomotors tend to require specialized skills to get them back up and running again if they have problems. Be sure to call us if you need help with your MSK servomotor.
