Abb motors for hazardous areas

Motors for use in hazardous areas are subject to rigorous safety requirements all over the world. By contrast, efficiency requirements for these motors vary widely between markets: some countries have tough requirements in force but others still do not have mandatory minimum efficiency levels. Nevertheless, motor users in all parts of the world are seeking ways to cut costs and reduce their environmental impact, and this has led to strong demand for efficient motors for applications in hazardous areas.

ABB meets this need by supplying a range of high and premium efficiency motors for hazardous areas. Efficient motors cost slightly more to purchase, but the big energy savings that are possible can make payback times very short. Other benefits include cooler running, which helps to cut maintenance requirements and extend the lifetime of key motor components.

Abb servo converters and servo motors

ABB’s BSM series servo motors offer a wide choice of high or low inertia models with winding options, feedback devices and gearheads to match. All ABB servo motors are designed for durability, and ability to handle harsh environments.

High and low inertia models to suit application demands
Continuous torque ranges from 0.16 Nm to 120 Nm and peak torques up to 320 Nm
Stainless steel designs suitable for harsh environments and for the pharmaceutical and food processing industry

ABB’s low backlash GBSM-series of gearheads are alos available for easily and direct mounting to BSM C-series and N-series servo motors.

Abb high voltage induction motors

ABB offers a full range of high voltage induction motors, including rib cooled motors, modular slip-ring motors and modular welded frame motors with different cooling options.
Each motor is individually designed to meet all the requirements of its application.

ABB has been manufacturing electric motors for more than 100 years and this experience is built in to every ABB high voltage induction motor.

The broad range of high voltage AC induction motors consists of cast iron fan cooled motors, modular welded frame motors with different cooling options and modular slip ring motors. Each motor is designed individually to meet all requirements of the specific application.

Abb synchronous motors

ABB is the market’s leading supplier of synchronous motors and generators. All over the world our synchronous motors deliver high performance in industrial processes, the marine and offshore sectors, utilities, and specialized applications.

Designed to provide extremely high reliability and efficiency, these motors help our customers to cut operating, maintenance and energy costs while lowering environmental impact. Our global service network and predefined maintenance programs ensure support for all life cycle stages of ABB motors.

Abb DMI DC motors

The DMI DC motor provides higher output performance over a wide speed range and is easier to maintain compared to conventional DC motors. Unique features and a robust design increases motor reliability and extends the time between maintenance intervals.

The power dense low-profile of the DMI DC motor also makes it easy to integrate into almost any existing application.

Extended speed range capabilities with superior commutating performance Longer brush wear lengths compared to conventional designed brushes
Reduced commutator diameters resulting in lower peripheral speeds and extended brush life Precise bearing tolerances preventing the risk of grease leakage into the motor High quality bearings with long lubrication intervals Mechanical brush wear monitoring system – no special monitoring probed brushes required

Abb DC drives

Whether you are looking to build new or retrofit an existing installation, our portfolio of state-of-the-art DC drives gives you design flexibility and the proven dependable performance expected from an ABB drive.

You can use our DC drives in almost any industrial application, either as part of a new installation or as a cost-effective retrofit. Our range is based on the latest control technology, and it gives you a complete selection of three phase DC drives starting at 9 kW (12 hp) and extending up to 18 MW (24,000 hp).

With programmability, built-in control programs, communication and I/O options, you can integrate them no matter what your process needs are.

Abb low and medium voltage AC drives

To boost the productivity of your processes, improve energy efficiency and cut maintenance costs, you can rely on our broad portfolio of low and medium voltage AC drives to deliver just that.

The portfolio covers the complete spectrum of drives. From micro and machinery drives for machine building to industrial drives for controlling processing lines, all the way up to industry specific drives with purpose-designed features and functionality.

ABB drives are available directly from stock or can be built to order to meet more complex requirements. Our life cycle services ensure your processes run exactly as you expect, year after year.
