Created with the design concept of “seven ultimate e-motional solutions,” the Σ-7 series delivers the world’s highest performance while providing other features such as further improvements in safety and an environmentally friendly design to meet the changing needs of its users. This series offers solutions that are guaranteed to satisfy users in all kinds of scenarios in the life-cycle of systems.
Ultimate safety and security
Systems can be operated safely because the Σ-7 Servo Drives comply with safety standards and safety is ensured by monitoring.
Satisfies requirements of the SIL 3 of the IEC 61508 functional safety standards∗ (first in Japan) ∗: Certification scheduled for April 2014
Certification will make it easier to set up systems that conform to safety standards for press machines and other systems in Europe and other regions. Certification also helps reduce the number of hours required for wiring and of peripheral devices.
Complies with Stop Category 0 (Safe Torque Off)

- The safety function works even for a single problem.
- The safety function is enhanced with compliance with the EN ISO 13849-1 PLe (performance level e).
Note : Although the safety performance level of the Σ-V series Servo Drives is PLd (performance level d), the benefits described in the figure on the left apply.
Protect systems from high temperatures
Σ-7 SERVOPACKs and Servomotors are equipped with temperature sensors that can directly monitor temperatures of machines and detect abnormalities to prevent failures. Real-time temperatures can be viewed on a display by using Machine Controllers.
