IEC low voltage motors for HVAC

ABB low voltage motors meet the demands of HVAC applications, from heavy duty industrial designs to commercial applications.

These applications include ventilators, direct drive and belted fans, exhaust fans, unit heaters, air conditioning units, smoke ventilation fans, and commercial refrigeration condensers.

They also need to use energy efficiently and help reduce CO2 emissions. Many applications use motors that you can help ensure are run in the most efficient way. 

Offering in Tunnel Ventilation

Smoke extraction motors

In the event of a tunnel fire, lives depend on the ability of extraction fans – and the electric motors driving them – to disperse toxic fumes and smoke quickly and efficiently. In normal daily operation they are part of the comfort ventilation system which maintains tunnel air quality.

  • Dual purpose secures fresh air by comfort operation and in the event of fire supporting safe evacuation. ABB smoke extraction motors are compliant with fans according to EN norms.
  • Tunnels ensure vital transport connections, demanding 100% reliability. Our motors are designed to withstand high temperatures and are available with wide range of options and solutions.
  • High efficiency motors up to IE4 efficiency class available.

Smoke extraction motors

Offering in District energy

Process performance motors

  • Designed for highest reliability in 24/7 operation
  • Hot, dusty environment: IP55 protection as standard to withstand dust and other impurities. IP66 is an option
  • Designed for the most demanding applications with the highest reliability, for DOL or VSD use
  • Modular concept offering flexibility with a wide range of options
  • Several efficiency classses (up to IE5 with SynRM)

Process performance induction motors

Synchronous reluctance motors (SynRM)

  • IE5 SynRM motors with VSDs can reduce energy losses by 50% compared to IE2 induction motors and 40% compared to IE3
  • Replacing legacy motors with SynRM and VSD typically reduces energy bills by 14 to 25%
  • SynRM motors deliver full torque from zero speed
  • Lower losses mean SynRM motors run cooler
  • A temperature reduction of 10 degrees means the winding lasts twice as long

Synchronous reluctance motors

General performance motors

  • General performance motors are available off the shelf for fast delivery.
  • There's a wide range of options to choose from and most changes only take one or two days.
  • Series 62 bearings from dependable manufacturers.
  • Smaller sizes have bearings that are lubricated for life.
  • A class C3 paint system protects against tough conditions.
  • Online tools make the motors easy to select and ensure fast access to datasheets and other information
