Looking Beyond the Motor for Increased Drive Train Efficiencies

The importance of drive train efficiency Control Engineering, December 6, 2016 Rather than breaking down the drivetrain into different sections and focussing on a single component, such as the motor, Bauer believes that a view should be taken of a single, ‘electro-mechanical’ package – one which must be fully integrated to achieve maximum performance. Despite

IE3 Electric Motors Required by the EU MEPS

Mandatory IE3 electric motors appearing in OEM machines Plant Engineer, January 14, 2015 From this month (1 January 2015), premium-efficiency IE3 motors are compulsory for all new machines in the range 7.5—375kW under EC 640/2009, the EU MEPS (Minimum Energy Performance Standard) regulations. IE2 motors are no longer permitted (beyond notified exceptions, such as ATEX

Updated Minimum Electric Motor Efficiency Standards

Nearly half of the electricity consumed in the manufacturing sector is used for powering motors, such as for fans, pumps, conveyors, and compressors. About two thirds of this machine-drive consumption occurs in the bulk chemicals, food, petroleum and coal products, primary metals, and paper industries.
