There has been an accelerating trend to suppress the usage of carbon dioxide (CO2) generating energy sources as a means of preventing worldwide global warming.
Against this backdrop, a great change has occurred in the environment surrounding 3-phase induction motors (hereinafter "motors") since they occupy approximately 40 to 50% of the world's energy consumption. There is currently a rapid move taking place in many countries toward the adoption of regulation-compliant high-efficiency motors that meet national standards such as MEPS*1.
China has also been enforcing amendments to standards, which includes a change from [GB18613-2006: Grade GB2*2
(equivalent to IE2*2
)], enacted on July 1, 2011, to [GB18613-2012: Grade GB3 (IE2*2
)], newly enacted on September 1, 2012. In other words, as of September 1, 2012, exporters of single unit motors and motors built into machinery and facilities need to be very careful because only motors that have acquired "GB18613-2012: Grade GB3" certification can clear customs and be sold in China.
- 1MEPS : Minimum Energy Performance Standard
- 2IE2 : Efficiency class (IE code) based on the international standard IEC 60034-30
(Note1): Make separate inquiry regarding voltages other than those listed above.
(Note2): We can also manufacture products with a CCW (counterclockwise as seen from load side) direction of rotation.
(Note3): We can also manufacture flange mounting types and leg equipped flange mounting types.
(Note4): Since we can also support JIS, JEC, and JEM standard compliant products, make separate inquiry if interested.
(Note5): Intermediate output other than those output values mentioned above is also applicable.
(Note6): Scheduled Grade GB2 (IE3) updates include: Specifications regarding output exceeding 7.5 kW on September 1, 2016, and specifications regarding output of 7.5 kW and below on September 1, 2017.
