  • Hydro Cool XT water cooled motor
    ABB water cooled motors with a rating of 60hp - 2000hp, this compact design offers a water cooled solution which occupies less space vs traditional fan cooled motors .

  • Advanced motor cooling technology
    The HydroCool XT motor uses a highly efficient cooling method to transfer heat away from the motor without the use of fans by circulating water through the water jacket. Cooling efficiency is maintained even at lower speeds, making this motor ideal for constant torque applications. 
    HydroCool XT motors offer a power dense solution for the most compact and demanding applications found in marine, mining and other process industries.
  • ACS880 drives with built-in winch control software
    Minimize your engineering time.

  • Our marine-certified ACS880 drives provide reliable operation and performance where it’s needed the most. They offer accurate speed and torque control for wide range of motor types, and are suitable for new installs and retrofits of existing winches.

    ACS880 drives are available in the 0.5 – 5,600 kW range and voltages of 400, 440, 500 and 690 V. Enclosure class options are IP20, IP21 and IP55.

    Removable memory unit stores the drive’s software and settings for fast and easy commissioning and maintenance.

    ACS880 marine winch control software ordering codes:

    • For deck machinery, anchoring/mooring and multi-motor/master-follower winches: +N5100
    • For offshore, tugboat and AHC winches:+ N5800 (limited release)

    Braking options:

    • Dynamic braking/resistors
    • Regenerative braking
  • Low voltage marine motors for winches
    Made to last in demanding conditions, our range of open-deck motors are designed to withstand salt, humidity and waves washing over the deck. They deliver reliably high performance for your winches, day after day....

  • Key benefits of ABB’s low voltage brake motors for winches

    • Designed to comply with stringent safety criteria while providing the highest reliability. At the same time, special attention is paid to marine classification requirements.
    • ABB Marine Process Performance brake motors consist of three flexible designs for customized configurations: 1) totally enclosed non-ventilated TENV (IEC 410); 2) totally enclosed fan cooled TEFC (IEC 411); 3) enclosed forced ventilated TEFV (IEC 416).
    • IP56 open deck protection (highest protection class for motors, standard IP56 is not adequate).
    • Built-in marine IP67 brake options from all major brake manufacturers.
    • Selection of encoders designed for harsh marine and offshore conditions.
    • Wide range of painting systems, including the NORSOK-approved system.
    • Availability of watertight enclosure IP67 open deck-type terminal box.
    • Robust, low-temperature-resistant designs can be supplied for vessels that operate in
    • Arctic or Antarctic waters. Ex-protected versions are also available.
  • All-compatible ACS880 single drives
    With the ACS880 single drives you simplify your world and open all possibilities....

  • You have complete flexibility and capability in wall-mounted or cabinet-built drives. All can be customized to your precise needs in industries such as oil and gas, mining, metals, chemicals, cement, power plants, material handling, pulp and paper, sawmills and marine. Built on ABB’s common drive platform for precision control in a wide range of applications such as cranes, extruders, winches, winders, conveyors, mixers, compressors, pumps and fans.
