The M3LP 500 is a strategic motor for ABB. It has a rated output from 800 kW up to 2000 kW with voltage 690 V, is available in four, six, and right pole versions, and is available for mounting configurations in foot and flange.

‘’We’re proud to rank number one on several important motor qualities,” says Marcus Westerlund, product manager for water-cooled motors at ABB IEC low voltage motors.

Originally for large ships, the motor has been repurposed to have a higher power density, a lower noise level, and a lower operating temperature than similar motors in the market. Its temperature-rise class is B on catalogue values compared to class F on most competitor motors.
