Mechanical power transmission products such as bearings, couplings and speed reducers are now included within ABB’s 2014 short-form catalogue alongside variable-speed drives, electric motors, motion control, HMIs (human-machine interface) and PLCs (programmable logic controllers).
The catalogue brings together the latest technology and innovations from the ABB range into a concise, easy to use guide to help customers find the right products for their applications.
It also highlights ABB’s ambition to offer packages of products throughout the mechanical drive train for end-users, system integrators, machine builders and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs); providing one source for all their product and service requirements.
The 96-page catalogue contains a drives and motors Product Quick Finder that provides speedy navigation to the right product by offering a brief description as to where the product can be used. For drives there is an additional Feature Finder which lists over 20 features such as enclosure ratings, ATEX compliance, cooling methods and so on and matches them to specific product types.
ABB’s recently launched Authorised Value Provider network is explained and details of all contacts are listed. Along with electric motors, the network provides direct access to the new ABB industrial drive, ACS880, which also features in the catalogue. The power range is extended to 2,800 kW in cabinet built units, with IP55 and IP21 variants now available. There is also a range of factory-built multidrive cabinets and modules included to allow integrators to build complex drives systems.
Alongside ABB’s extensive IEC motors are its NEMA motors which are now available directly from ABB’s stock in Menden in Germany giving much quicker lead-times than from other manufacturers. The range of NEMA motors include general purpose industrial motors, severe duty motors and explosion proof motors.
ABB’s IE4 energy efficient synchronous reluctance motor (SynRM) and drive packages also feature and now include cast iron frame sizes from 160 to 316 in power ratings from 11 to 315 kW. More powerful, high output SynRM motors in aluminum and cast iron frame designations are listed with frame sizes from 90 to 132 and power ratings between 1.1 kW to 37 kW for the aluminum construction variants. The cast iron high output SynRM motors have larger frame sizes available from 160 to 316 with power ratings from 17 kW to 350 kW.
