Efficency

In Europe, the Commission Regulation 640/2009, adopted on 22 July 2009, specifies the requirements regarding the ecodesign of electric motors. In particular, the Regulation establishes the minimum efficiency classes the motors should have.

The application field of the EuP (Energy-using Products) Regulation includes low voltage three-phase squirrel cage-induction motors for 50Hz or 50/60Hz single speed with the following properties:

  • Rated voltage up to 1.000 V
  • Rated output between 0,75 kW and 375 kW
  • Either 2, 4 or 6 poles
  • Rated for continuous duty

Brake motors are exempted from the EuP Motor Regulation.

Brake motors belonging to the BA and BM series have efficiency class IE1.
Although the brake motors are exempted from the EuP Motor Regulation, motors with efficiency class IE2 or IE3 (BAX series and BMX series) are also available on request. In this case it must be specified when ordering as compared to the standard execution.
