DC motor catalog

DC motor catalog

RE: DC motor catalog

Probably not a catalog item but a made-to-order machine. I suggest that you contact the ABB motors factory in Germany which is quite possibly the original builder of this machine:

ABB Automation Products GmbH
Hermann-Heinrich-Gossen-Strasse 3
50858 Köln- Cologne, Germany.

If the motor isn't one of theirs then they will probably recognise which factory did build it.

RE: DC motor catalog

I have contact the ABB motors factory in Germany, but they replied: "Steffen Ziegler: we don’t have catalogs for DC Motors ".
There are any way to access it?

RE: DC motor catalog

Do some research and try to find out who they sold that part of the business to.
It could even be a different part of ABB that knows about it.

RE: DC motor catalog

Did you ask for a catalog of a manual?

RE: DC motor catalog

The detailed user manual (catalog) by picture of nameplate

RE: DC motor catalog

A catalog is not a user manual. They are not synonyms.

Catalog - document with a list of similar items
User manual - document that tells how an item works or its detailed characteristics.

There is a translation error somewhere.

Also, I typed incorrectly:
Did you ask for a catalog of a manual?
instead of
Did you ask for a catalog or a manual?

If you had this document what would you learn from it?

RE: DC motor catalog

Thank you 3DDave
I need user manual to find information about characteristics of its ventilation and Brushes.

RE: DC motor catalog

The motor is nearly 50 years old. ABB will probably be able to help you if you pay them.

RE: DC motor catalog

Thinking more about this, that motor pre-dates ABB by about 17 years.
  • Is it an ASEA motor or is it a Brown-Boveri motor?
  • How and when did it get an ABB maker's plate?
What history do you have on this machine?

What Scotty said:

Quote (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ABB_Group)

ABB resulted from the 1988 merger of the Swedish corporation Allmänna Svenska Elektriska Aktiebolaget (ASEA) and the Swiss company Brown, Boveri & Cie (BBC)

RE: DC motor catalog

yes, it is BBC motor. I don't know about maker's plate.
