Before You Begin
You are responsible for inspecting the equipment before you accept the shipment from the
freight company. Check the items you receive against your purchase order. Notify the carrier of
shipping damage or missing items immediately. Store or operate your motor in a clean and dry
location within the Environmental Specifications on page 17.
ATTENTION: To avoid personal injury and damage to the motor, do not lift or handle the motor by the
motor shaft. The cap on the shaft can come loose and cause you to drop the motor.
Before You Install the Motor
Perform these inspection steps before you install the motor.
1. Remove the motor carefully from its shipping container.
2. Visually inspect the motor for any damage.
3. Examine the motor frame, front output shaft, and mounting pilot for any defects.
4. Notify the carrier of shipping damage immediately.
ATTENTION: Do not open and modify the motor.
Failure to observe these safety procedures could result in personal injury or damage to equipment.
Removing the Shaft Cap
Remove the protective cap installed on the motor shaft with your hand or by prying it off with a
screwdriver. Do not use a hammer or other tools as they can damage the motor shaft.
Prolonging Motor Life
Thoughtful design and proper maintenance can increase the life of a servo motor. Follow these
guidelines to maximize the life of a servo motor operated within the Environmental
Specifications on page 17.
Rockwell Automation Publication VPS-IN002B-EN-P - December 2014
Kinetix VP Stainless-steel Servo Motor with 130 mm and 165 mm Frame Size 5
ATTENTION: Do not spray liquids under high pressure directly on the connector, the motor, or the
enclosure joints.
Fluids under high pressure can be forced into the connector, resulting in an electrical short circuit.
Fluids also can be forced around worn seals, and contaminate the motor bearings. Bearing
contamination significantly shortens the life of a servo motor.
The motor connector is not designed to withstand high-pressure washdown, or washdown with
aggressive cleaning compounds. Position the connector away from direct exposure to cleaning
processes, for example, within washdown-rated conduit or junction boxes.
Failure to observe these safety procedures could result in personal injury or damage to equipment.
• Do not install the motor with the shaft pointing upward, as this increases the risk of
contaminant ingress.
• If design requirements permit, provide shields or junction boxes that protect the motor
housing, shaft seals, connector, and their junctions from product contamination, caustic
agents, and high pressure fluids.
• Shaft seals are subject to wear and require periodic inspection and replacement.
Replacement is recommended every 3 months, not to exceed 12 months, depending on
use. Refer to Slinger and Shaft Seal Removal and Installation on page 14 for more
information on shaft seals.
• If desired, seal the motor front flange to the driven equipment with a bead of food-grade
room temperature vulcanizing (RTV) silicone around the periphery of the motor to
equipment joint. Use of a gasket, or non food-grade RTV silicone, on the mating surfaces
can cause misalignment of the shaft and result in damage to the motor and driven
equipment.
• Always provide a drip loop in the single motor cable to carry liquids away from the
connection to the motor.
Create a Drip Loop
The cable lacks a drip loop.
Position the motor so that the cable enters from beneath
the motor, and forms a drip loop, as shown here.
Rockwell Automation Publication VPS-IN002B-EN-P - December 2014
6 Kinetix VP Stainless-steel Servo Motor with 130 mm and 165 mm Frame Size
Using Shaft Seals
A seal is installed on the motor shaft to protect the front bearing from fluids or fine dust that can
contaminate the motor bearing and reduce its lifetime. The IP66, IP67, or IP69K rating for the
motor depends on the shaft seals and the environmental seal on the connector and cable:
• Refer to Positive Air-pressure Accessory Kit on page 18 to find the catalog numbers of
seal kits available for your motor.
• Refer to Environmental Specifications on page 17 for brief descriptions of IP ratings.
Refer to Kinetix Motion Control Selection Guide, publication GMC-SG001, to find
environmentally sealed cables that are compatible with the Bulletin VPS motors.
Using Couplings and Pulleys
Mechanical connections to the motor shaft, such as couplings and pulleys, require a torsionally
rigid coupling or a reinforced timing belt. The high dynamic performance of servo motors can
cause couplings, pulleys, or belts to loosen or slip over time. A loose or slipping connection causes
system instability and can damage the motor shaft. All connections between the machine and the
motor shaft must be rigid to achieve acceptable system response. Periodically inspect
connections to verify their rigidity.
When mounting couplings or pulleys to the motor shaft, verify that the connections are properly
aligned and that axial and radial loads are within the specifications of the motor. If you attach a
sealed gearbox to the motor shaft, remove the slinger (see Remove the Slinger on page 14).
Refer to Motor Load Force Ratings on page 12 for guidelines on how to achieve 20,000 hours of
motor bearing life.
ATTENTION: Damage can occur to the motor bearings and the feedback device if sharp impact is
applied to the shaft during installation of couplings and pulleys. Damage to the feedback device
can result from applying leverage to the motor mounting face when removing devices mounted on
the motor shaft.
Do not strike the shaft, couplings, or pulleys with tools during installation or removal. Use a wheel
puller to apply pressure from the user end of the shaft when attempting to remove any device from
the motor shaft.
Failure to observe safety precautions could result in damage to the motor and its components.
A shaft key provides a rigid mechanical connection with the potential for self-alignment, but the
key must be properly installed in the keyway. Refer to these sections for additional information:
• Shaft, Pilot, and Keyway Dimensions, mm (in.) on page 10 for information about the
key and shaft keyway dimensions
• Remove and Install a Shaft Key on page 13 for recommendations on how to remove and
install a shaft key

Kinetix VP Stainless-steel Servo Motor with 130 mm and 165 mm Frame Size 7
Preventing Electrical Noise
Electromagnetic interference (EMI), commonly called electrical noise, can reduce motor
performance. Effective techniques to counter EMI include filtering the AC power, using
shielded cables, shielding signal cables from power wiring, and practicing good grounding
techniques.
Follow these guidelines to avoid the effects of EMI:
• Isolate the power transformers or install line filters on all AC input power lines.
• Do not route the single motor cable over the vent openings on servo drives.
• Ground all equipment by using a single-point parallel ground system that employs
ground bus bars or large straps. If necessary, use additional electrical noise reduction
techniques to reduce EMI in noisy environments.
See System Design for Control of Electrical Noise Reference Manual, publication
GMC-RM001, for additional information on reducing EMI.
Install the Motor
Motor installation must comply with all local regulations and use of equipment and installation
practices that promote safety and electromagnetic compatibility:
• All motors include a mounting pilot for aligning the motor on a machine.
• Preferred fasteners are stainless steel.
ATTENTION: Unmounted motors, disconnected mechanical couplings, loose shaft keys, and
disconnected cables are dangerous if power is applied.
Verify that disassembled equipment is identified (tagged-out) and access to electrical power is
restricted (locked-out).
Before applying power to the motor, remove the shaft key and other mechanical couplings that
could be thrown from the shaft.
Failure to observe these safety procedures could result in personal injury or damage to equipment.

8 Kinetix VP Stainless-steel Servo Motor with 130 mm and 165 mm Frame Size
Cable Shielding
The single motor cable contains power and digital encoder signals. It must be shielded, and the
cable shield must connect to ground.
Knowledgeable cable routing improves system electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). To install
the single motor cable, follow these steps.
1. Keep the cable length as short as possible.
2. Ground both ends of the cable shield and twist the signal wire pairs to prevent
electromagnetic interference from other equipment.
SHOCK HAZARD: High voltage can be present on the shields of the single motor cable if the
shields are not grounded.
Verify that there is a connection to ground for all shields in the single motor cable.
Failure to observe these safety procedures could result in personal injury or damage to equipment.
ATTENTION: The overall shield on the motor cable must be grounded to obtain an effective
encoder signal.
The encoder data signal is transmitted through an impedance-matched twisted-wire pair that
requires effective shielding for optimum performance.
Be sure there is an effective connection between the motor cable shield and the drive system
ground.
Mount and Connect the Motor
To install a Bulletin VPS motor, follow these procedures and recommendations.
ATTENTION: Servo motors are not for direct connection to an AC power line.
Servo motors are designed for connection to a servo drive that controls the application of AC
power.
Failure to observe these safety precautions could result in damage to the motor and equipment.
ATTENTION: Do not strike the shaft, couplings, or pulleys with tools during installation or removal.
Damage can occur to the motor bearings and the feedback device if you apply a sharp impact to
the shaft during installation of couplings and pulleys, or a shaft key.
Failure to observe these safety procedures could result in damage to the motor and its
components.
Rockwell Automation Publication VPS-IN002B-EN-P - December 2014
Kinetix VP Stainless-steel Servo Motor with 130 mm and 165 mm Frame Size 9
1. Allow sufficient clearances in the area of the motor for it to stay within its specified
operating temperature range.
Do not install the motor in an area with restricted airflow. Keep other heat producing
devices away from the motor.
BURN HAZARD: Outer surfaces of the motor can reach high temperatures, 125 °C (275 °F), during
motor operation.
Take precautions to prevent accidental contact with hot surfaces. Consider motor surface
temperature when selecting motor mating connections and cables.
Failure to observe these safety procedures could result in personal injury or damage to equipment.
Obtain the specified motor thermal rating by mounting the motor on a surface with heat
dissipation equivalent to a 304.8 x 304.8 x 12.7 mm (12 x 12 x 0.5 in.) aluminum
heatsink.
Refer to Environmental Specifications on page 17 for the operating range.
2. Determine the radial and axial shaft load limitations of your motor by referring to Motor
Load Force Ratings on page 12.
3. Position the motor with the cable connections beneath the motor.
Refer to Create a Drip Loop on page 5 for a visual reference of correct motor and cable
positioning.
4. Properly mount and align the motor.
The index pulse occurs on the encoder when the shaft key is aligned with the connector.
Refer to Motor Dimensions on page 10 for a visual reference of this alignment.
5. Attach the single motor cable that transmits the power and digital encoder signals as
described below.
a. Carefully align the cable connector with the motor cable connector.
b. Align the flat surface on the top of the motor cable connector with the flat surfaces
on the cable connector.
ATTENTION: Verify proper alignment and then hand-tighten the keyed connector.
Do not use tools, or apply excessive force, when mating the cable to the motor connector. If the
connectors do not go together with light hand force, realign and try again.
Failure to observe these safety procedures could result in damage to the motor and cable, and their
components.
c. Hand-tighten the knurled collar one-quarter turn to fully seat the cable connector.
d. Verify that the cable is properly shielded.
See Cable Shielding on page 8.
e. Form a drip loop in the cable to carry liquids away from the connector.

Remove and Install a Shaft Key
Shaft keys for the BulletinVPS motors are constructed of stainless steel - 300 series with a
tolerance for interference fit (slightly larger than the opening) to provide a secure and rigid fit for
the mating connection.
ATTENTION: Damage can occur to the motor bearings and the feedback device if sharp impact is
applied to the shaft during installation of couplings and pulleys. Damage to the feedback device
can result from applying leverage to the motor mounting face when removing devices mounted on
the motor shaft.
Do not strike the shaft, couplings, or pulleys with tools during installation or removal. Use a wheel
puller to apply pressure from the user end of the shaft when attempting to remove any device from
the motor shaft.
Failure to observe safety precautions could result in damage to the motor and its components.
To remove a shaft key, perform one of these actions:
• Grasp the key with a plier or similar tool, and lift the key out of the key slot.
• Insert a screwdriver between the key and the bottom of the key slot, and use a levering
action to lift the key out of the key slot.
To install a shaft key, follow these steps.
1. Verify that the replacement key matches the keyway in the shaft and the mating
mechanical connection, for example, a coupling or pulley, before proceeding.
2. Align the front of the key with the front of the motor shaft.
This prevents the curved end-of-cut at the motor end of the keyway from interfering
with the correct seating of the key.
3. Support the underside of the shaft diameter with a fixture, and use a controlled press
device to apply a constant force across the top surface to press the key into the shaft.

Remove the Shaft Seal
The shaft seal can be safely removed by partially inserting an appropriately sized screw or bolt
into the face of the shaft seal. The head of the screw or bolt provides a convenient point to grasp
and remove the shaft seal.
Before installing the screw, create a pilot hole appropriate for the screw being used. Use masking
tape or a depth sleeve to establish a drilling depth limit of 4 mm (0.16 in.) from the tip of the drill
bit.
ATTENTION: Do not drill into the shaft seal deeper than 4 mm (0.16 in.).
Drilling and inserting a screw completely through the shaft seal can damage the motor bearings,
and require factory service to repair the motor.
1. Drill a pilot hole in the face of the shaft seal less than the depth limit specified above.
Be sure the drill does not come in contact with the shaft seal bore.
2. Thread the screw or bolt into the pilot hole.
3. Lift the shaft seal from the motor by grasping the screw head and slightly rotating the
seal while pulling.
4. Inspect and clean the shaft and sealing surfaces as necessary.
Replace the Shaft Seal
No tools are required to install the replacement shaft seal.
IMPORTANT
This shaft seal requires a lubricant to reduce wear. The lubricant is supplied in the kit.
1. Apply the provided grease to the inner ring of the shaft seal and motor shaft.
2. Center the shaft seal on the mounting surface of the motor with the seal oriented in the
same manner as the removed seal.
3. Press the shaft seal into the seal recess by applying pressure with your fingertips in a
circular fashion to slowly seat the shaft seal in place.
The surface of the seal must be 0.6 mm (0.02 in.) below the pilot surface.
4. Verify that the outer and inner circumference of the shaft seal is fully seated into
position.
TIP
To verify that the shaft seal is fully seated into position, run your fingertip around the
seal-to-motor joint and feel for irregularities in the shaft seal, or an uneven alignment where
the shaft seal contacts the motor.

2. Tighten the nut on the threaded rod against the end of the motor shaft.
This prevents the threaded rod from backing out of the motor shaft during this
removal/installation procedure.
3. Position the slinger squarely on the end of the motor shaft.
4. Place a deep well socket, a larger washer, and a nut on the threaded rod.
Use a socket larger than the shaft diameter to provide sufficient clearance between the
inside surface of the socket and the motor shaft. The table below lists shaft diameters for
various motor sizes.

5. Tighten the nut to force the washer, socket, and slinger down the shaft.
IMPORTANT
Grasp the slinger tightly by hand to prevent shaft and slinger rotation in the next steps.
If additional travel is required to seat the slinger, add a section of hollow pipe or a similar
item behind the socket.
6. Stop moving the slinger down the shaft approximately 3 mm (0.125 in.) before the
slinger contacts the mounting surface of the motor.

Adjust the Clearance between the Slinger and Motor Face
1. Position two 0.5 mm (0.02 in.) feeler gauges between the motor face and slinger,
one feeler gauge on each side of the shaft.
2. Slowly tighten or loosen the nut to adjust the slinger on the shaft.
Adjustment is complete when the slinger lightly and evenly contacts both feeler gauges.
TIP
Replace the shaft key, if the motor is so equipped, after removing all tools.
Refer to Remove and Install a Shaft Key on page 13.

Motor Cables and Accessory Kits
Accessories available from the factory include these items.
Single Motor Cables
Factory-manufactured single motor cables are available in standard cable lengths. They provide
the sealing needed to achieve environmental ratings and shield termination.
For a complete listing of available single motor cables, contact your nearest Rockwell
Automation sales office, or refer to the Kinetix Motion Accessories Specifications Technical
Data, publication GMC-TD004.
Positive Air-pressure Accessory Kit
A positive air-pressure kit (catalog number MPS-AIR-PURGE) is available for field installation
on Bulletin VPS motors.
The kit provides a quick-release female air fitting. Positive air pressure applied to the motor
provides an additional level of protection against the ingress of foreign substances and moisture.
Positive Air-pressure Accessory Kit Guidelines
You must supply these items with the sealing plug:
• Plastic air tubing must be 4 mm (5/32 in.) OD Teflon FEP tubing.
• Air supplied to the motor must not exceed 0.1 bar (1.45 psi).
ATTENTION: Excessive air pressure or improper filtering of air can result in damage to the motor.
Air supplied to the motor must be clean, dry, and of instrument quality. Maximum air pressure is
0.1 bar (1.45 psi).
Failure to observe these safety procedures could result in personal injury or damage to equipment.
Positive Air-pressure Accessory Kit Installation
1. Remove the 5 mm (0.20 in.) sealing plug with a Phillips screwdriver.
Refer to the diagram Mounting Dimension References, mm (in.) on page 10 for the
location of the sealing plug.
2. Inspect the air fitting and motor opening to verify that the surface area is undamaged,
and the contact area is clean.
3. Torque the air fitting to 1.1…1.2 N•m (9.7…10.6 lb•in).
4. Visually inspect the circumference of the connection for proper seating.
