EU MEPS (European Minimum Energy Performance Standard) was introduced by EU Commission Regulation EC 640/2009. This Regulation changed the European motor market in 2011 by making IE2 the mandatory minimum efficiency class for new motors placed on the market. It was updated in 2014 by Commission Regulation EU 4/2014, which eliminated a number of loopholes in the original Regulation. These Regulations together set the minimum efficiency levels for electric motors introduced into the European... Read More

Any advice given in this website is only general and every single application must be handled as a specific case. Any connections made to an electric motor should be carried out by qualified persons.

The three stator windings are connected in star (Y) or delta (∆).

The windings can also be connected in series or parallel, Y or YY for instance. If the rating plate on a squirrel cage motor indicates voltages or both the star and delta connection, it is possible to use the motor... Read More

Alternator - A synchronous rotating AC machine used to change mechanical power into electrical power (alternating current - AC).

A.C. - AC Alternating current (AC) is an electric current whose direction reverses cyclically, as opposed to direct current, whose direction remains constant. The usual waveform of an AC power circuit is a sine wave, as this results in the most efficient transmission of energy.

Ambient Temperature -... Read More

What are the components of an electric motor?

Electric Motor Components Understanding the components of a motor and how it works can show how energy wastage can occur within a business. The diagram (below) shows the various parts that make up an induction motor, from the conduit box, where the electrical input is applied (either directly from the mains/grid supply or from a VSD), to the output shaft. Simply put, as electrical power is applied, a rotating magnetic... Read More
