Many drive technology customers are currently in the middle of adapting to the new efficiency requirements for electric motors, while some are only just starting to familiarize themselves with the standards. It is about time to do so: from June 16, 2011, only motors fulfilling IE2 efficiency requirements can be used for certain types of applications within the EU market. In addition to face-to-face consultation for customers worldwide, NORD Drivesystems provides helpful and instructive resource information at www.nord.com. Clients who are unsure whether their chosen motor complies with the energy efficiency requirements, and which alternative is best suited, can use NORD's decision tree which is available for download from the website (nord.com > IE2 motors > decision tree). Also available online, an interactive energy saving calculator determines the operating cost savings offered by IE2 motors during continuous operation based on plant and machine data. Moreover, a print version of the new M7000 motor catalog can be ordered from the NORD website, or a PDF version can be downloaded directly. The concise brochure lists the efficiency requirements in different markets worldwide and, organized by target regions, helps users choose the right motor.
