The AlphaCool adapter from Wittenstein, used to connect a servomotor to a gearbox, is designed to reduce the heat generated due to the connection. The specially designed adapter plate allows maximum flow of fluid to better remove the heat. In addition, it provides a lowering of the motor winding temperatures. This fluidcooled plate enables increased performance in the motor/ gearhead combination, and higher torque load and/or rpm. As a result, a smaller motor potentially can be used.
