ABB’s new SynRM² motor will deliver IE5 efficiency without rare earth magnets

Posted: Monday 11th August 2014

Building upon the current IE4 Super Premium Efficiency standard, ABB’s innovative IE5 SynRM2 technology will reduce energy losses by an additional 20 percent. This new motor technology, presented at the Hannover Fair 2014 in Germany, sees ABB taking motor efficiency to the next level, a new ultra-premium efficiency, IE5.

The SynRM2 is an upgrade of ABB’s award-winning SynRM (synchronous reluctance) motor technology launched in 2011. It strengthens ABB’s motors and drives technology portfolio particularly in markets where customers require the highest efficiency.

A feature of ABB’s latest SynRM2 motors is that they do not utilise rare earth permanent magnets. Instead they use ferrite magnets, which are more cost effective and easily available. This results in more economically and ecologically sustainable products.

The largest business potential for the new motors is in the 1-15 kW output range, and among OEM customers who require motor and drive packages which can be flexibly configured for optimum performance in a variety of specific application needs.
