Leading with technology with ABB’s IEC LV Motors

In order to keep the world turning and provide a sustainable future for our planet, constant development is necessary. The SynRM motor not only saves our customers money, but also helps protect our planet’s resources.

Energy efficiency that doesn’t cost the earth

Our cutting-edge technology delivers excellent benefits. For example, development of the IE5 SynRM motor is the culmination of 130 years of R&D experience and innovation. Providing necessities to the world’s population will only be possible in the future if we improve the efficiency with which they are produced. Our IEC Low Voltage motors are robust, customisable and dependable, and suitable for use in numerous industries and applications, such as HVAC, food and beverage, and water treatment facilities, as well as in some of the most demanding conditions.

But, as well as being highly flexible, they are extremely efficient, delivering significant reductions in lost energy, emissions, and costs. Each year, on average, the IEC Low Voltage motors we supply save the same energy that is used by 5.5 million households, and as much CO2 as 1.3 million passenger cars over their lifetime. Furthermore, the payback time could be as little as one year. As a company, ABB has always been concerned with creating benefits through technological improvements. Our comprehensive portfolio offers our customers advanced, reliable performance that enables them to concentrate on their own business, without costing the earth.


Motors drive the planet and billions of us rely on them to keep life going, but it takes a lot of energy to do it. Efficiency is everything. Increasing it on all motors could have a major impact on reducing energy consumption and overall operating costs, which is why we’re constantly innovating to deliver greater efficiency, and reduce energy use and emissions. Our cutting-edge technology portfolio gives you the peace of mind you need to focus on your business.
