ABB reported the AXW 5000 and 5800 motors offer more horsepower per pound than conventional enclosed fan-cooled motors but with a smaller frame size. The motors are ideal for compact installations.

Listed advantages include higher power densities, smaller footprint, noise reduction, and constant cooling on variable-speed drive applications, ABB reported. With a cooling water jacket surrounding the motor, the AXW unit is optimal for continuous operations in harsh, contaminate-filled environments.

The main terminal box and auxiliary box can be installed in several positions for simple installation and efficient maintenance, the company reported. The rigid frame design increases stability so the motor has very low vibrations and can meet strict specifications.

The motors are available with up to an IP56 rating.
