Rib cooled induction motor is ready for duty and available from stock
18 November 2020
ABB’s rib cooled high-voltage motor is available from stock for immediate delivery to the UK. The motor provides high power density for compact installations, packing more power per kilogramme than conventional motors.
This allows operators often to use a motor one frame size smaller than with conventional products, making optimal use of available space and suitable for retrofit applications. Stock frame sizes range from 315 to 450 with ratings of 200 to 1400kW. Both direct-online (DOL) and variable speed drive (VSD) variants are available for use in hazardous and safe areas.
Rib cooling provides superior air flow for internal cooling, reducing the risk of overheating and unpredicted failures. The motor’s rigid, weight-optimised frame is engineered to minimise vibration, and it is provided with an ABB AbilityTM Smart Sensor as standard at no extra cost.
The Smart Sensor is the next step in digitalising motor applications, turning mechanical equipment like motors, gearing, bearings and pumps into IoT-ready smart devices that can provide near real-time feedback on equipment performance, condition and efficiency.
The sensor fits directly to the motor’s chassis and can be installed and configured within a matter of minutes. Once installed, it measures parameters such as temperature, acoustics, vibration, energy consumption and magnetic field straight from the surface of the motor, and transmits it via the cloud to a dashboard from which it can be analysed, facilitating remote monitoring and predictive maintenance.
