For extended energy-efficiency directive

Motors & Drives


The European Commission has initiated a significant tightening of the energy-efficiency directive for electrical devices, leaving more users of drive technology faced with new challenges. By providing comprehensive information, fast, expert support, and suitable drive products, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS aims to enable machinery and equipment manufacturers to continue producing economically compelling solutions that comply with all regulations. The exceptions of the 2009/640/EC Directive will be changed substantially as early as autumn 2013. One aspect will be particularly important for most users: the new definition of the range of very high and very low ambient temperatures in which conventional motors may be used. Up until now, IE1 motors could be used in applications with ambient temperatures below -15 °C or above 40 °C. In the future, the exception only applies to extreme temperatures below -30 °C or above 60 °C. This extension of the directive's field of application will increase its impact and ecological sustainability.
