The right solution for all our customers

Published Mar 13, 2013
The Seidel 60WKS in various guises. Still supplied and serviced by us nearly 30 years on.

At Motor Technology our philosophy is to provide customers with solutions that suit them rather than trying to sell something that suits us, as is often the case with large manufacturers. We have access to a wide range of products from different suppliers, including second hand and refurbished products. We can even supply legacy products that are essentially discontinued lines manufactured under license.

A lot of our customers are using old technology, and when it's functioning reliably there's rarely any point in trying to replace old for new, with all the expense that would go with it. We specialise in servicing and repairing old analogue products so we can keep you operational without the need to upgrade. Very often we can replace old analogue products with unused or refurbished units that are like for like, drop-in replacements.

A good example of this is the Seidel 60WKS, a high-performance, analogue servo amplifier for controlling brushless synchronous servo motors. In operation since the mid 1980s it's proved itself to be a very reliable work horse and we know plenty of customers who are reluctant to change. And there's no need to.

Motor Technology still supports these drives. We can provide an exchange or refurbishment service and supply all the accessories to go with the drives, such as ballast boards, customer prints, ferrite rings and ramp generator options. Also, while stocks last, we can still supply brand new units.

Over the years the 60WKS has made an appearance in many different guises, such as ABB Axodyn and the Schindler & Wagner (SchiWa) versions. If you're not sure then contact us for advice and more information on the different codes of the 60WKS such as: 60WKS-M240/06-PB-01 and 60WKS-CE240/22PB24V etc. It may be worth checking, because if your drive is a 60WKS then it's still serviceable and there's no need to change a thing.
