  • Associated product(s)
In Spares on Web, by entering the serial number, you can identify which options have been installed in a motor, and what these mean.

Where can I obtain information as to which options have been installed in a motor and what do these actually mean?

By entering the motor MLFB and serial number in the Spares on Web (SoW)  online tool, you can obtain additional information about the product.
Under the Details tab, the options that have been installed are displayed with the order codes.
By clicking on these, the descriptions of the order codes are loaded from the PMD and displayed in plain text. The precondition is that the motor has been entered in the PMD.
