ABB’s rib-cooled motors now available through Baldor

By |  March 5, 2015

Baldor Electric Co. is now offering ABB’s expanded high-voltage rib-cooled motor platform, type NXR, with higher power ranges and increased ingress protection. With higher power ranges and optional ingress protection up to IP66, Baldor says these motors fit more industries and applications, providing more reliability and easier maintenance. The new NXR high-voltage rib-cooled motor platform is based on the HXR range.

According to Baldor, the NXR motor platform is now available in frame sizes 355 to 450 and in the power range of 100 to 1,250 kW. The entire power range is enhanced with optional increased protection ratings up to IP66, the company adds. Higher protection is especially important for applications where dust is present, Baldor says. IP66 means that the enclosure is dust tight and will withstand powerful water jets.
