ABB NEMA Motors

NEMA 3-phase AC motors are built on a solid reputation for rugged and durable motor performance.  From light-weight and flexible design of a GP100A motors in aluminum to the most robust and efficient SD200 severe duty motors that meet IEEE 841, API661, NEMA Premium® and other stringent industry standards—this is a complete line of industrial motors to meet every industry need.

Product offering

ABB NEMA Motors
GP100

GP100 is a new line of ABB NEMA cast-iron motors that utilize the same design philosophy that goes into the design of our renowned severe duty line of motors… ruggedness, reliability, performance and efficiency.  The design provides high structural strength through the use of finite element analysis to strategically place material within each component to resist the effects of stress and vibration. Materials for resistance to corrosion are liberally used throughout for long life in a wide variety of industrial applications.

ABB NEMA Motors
GP100A

GP100A is a new line of ABB NEMA aluminum housing motors, suitable for general purpose use. They weigh less than comparable rolled-steel frame motor designs, yet provide more structural strength for a wide variety of industrial applications. Available in foot mounted and C-face footless design. These motors are designed to NEMA Premium efficiency and are designed to be run DOL (Direct on line) or with variable speed operations.

ABB NEMA Motors
SD100

A new line of ABB NEMA cast-iron motors, used in severe duty applications are designed and built for long, trouble-free life in harsh environments.  Industries – in chemical processing, mining, foundry, pulp and paper, waste management, and more- trust their operation to SD100.  They are available with a wide selection of application-matched modifications to meet specific needs, ambient conditions and installation requirements.  These industrial workhorses are rugged and efficient, ensuring performance in the most severe operating environments.

ABB NEMA Motors
SD100 IEEE841

The SD100 IEEE841 motor is the ultimate NEMA design motor that meet or exceed IEEE Standard 841 requirements for efficiency, performance, construction, adjustable-speed operation and long service life in the most demanding applications.

ABB NEMA Motors
SD200

SD200 is a new line of ABB NEMA motors: flexible severe duty motor designed for long, trouble-free life in harsh environments. SD200 is the next generation of severe duty motors, not only meeting but exceeding NEMA Premium and U.S. DOE requirements. 

ABB NEMA Motors
SD200 841

The SD200 IEEE841 motor is a new generation of NEMA design motor that meet or exceed IEEE Standard 841-2021 requirements for efficiency, performance, construction, adjustable-speed operation and long service life in the most demanding applications.

ABB NEMA Motors

SD661

The SD661 motor is built in compliance with the requirements of API661 standard, by incorporating regreaseable roller bearings and cast-iron end cap son frames 210-360. These motors are used for heavy belt-driven air cooled heat exchangers in the petrochemical, energy and other similar industries.

ABB NEMA Motors
LP100 & HP100 vertical pump motors

ABB’s new line of Vertical Solid Shaft pump motors are designed and built to operate under harsh environments. LP100 are inline high thrust and extra high thrust motors, while HP100 are P-base normal thrust motors. These motors are designed to meet or exceed the NEMA Premium® efficiency as well as the most stringent industry standards API610 (LP100) and IEEE 841. A wide selection of options, among them bearing isolators and ceramic bearings on drive end, extra high thrust and non-reverse ratchet for LP100 motors make these motors suitable for almost any requirement.

ABB NEMA Motors
DP200 HPS (horizontal pump systems)

ABB DP200 is a New Generation of ABB NEMA Pump motors: Based on the flexible severe duty motor designed of SD200 it emulates its long, trouble-free life in harsh environments as well as its flexible configuration. DP200 is the next generation of pump motors for the horizontal pump systems.

ABB NEMA Motors
XP100

The XP100 motors is a new line of ABB NEMA motors – rugged explosion proof motors that provide reliable operation even under extreme conditions. They are UL® listed and CSA certified for gas and dust ignition environments and suitable for Class I, Groups C&D and Class II Groups F&G, Division 1 hazardous area classification. The XP100 ID1 drill rig duty motors is certified for Class I, Group D, Division 1 hazardous locations.

ABB acquires Siemens’ line of NEMA motors on May 2023. This line of NEMA motors is now “ABB NEMA low voltage motors”. From GP motors (general purpose) to SD (severe duty), and XP (explosion proof) to DP (definite purpose) – this is complete line of low voltage NEMA motors ranging from 1 – 800Hp with NEMA frame sizes 140T – 5013.
