EMSA invites you to take part in an international survey on the status of digitalisation in your company and in motor driven systems. The target is to identify interesting use cases and advantages, but also potential
What are the lessons learned after working more than 10 years with motor standards? More about this and other questions in the webinar held by Conrad U. Brunner on 10 June 2020.
Release of Final Report: Domestic Air Conditioner Test Standards and Harmonization. This 4E project undertook a detailed examination of current test
Publication of Final Report: Visual Perception under Energy-Efficient Light Sources – Detection of the Stroboscopic Effect under Low Levels of SVM
The SSL Annex is pleased to publish today the Final Report for a research project that examined visual perception associated with temporal light modulation, and more specifically the stroboscopic effect. An interim draft report on this study was published in December 2018, and it has since been extended in sample size and in the scope of analysis and has undergone peer review.
The Motor Summit 2020 Internationals brings together selected international experts, industry representatives, standards developers and policy makers to exchange information on the latest
The European Commission published the new ecodesign and energy labelling regulations that apply to all lighting products in Europe. Called the “One Lighting Regulation”, the scope of coverage applies to all light sources – incandescent, halogen, fluorescent, high intensity discharge and solid-state lighting sources. The regulations set out mandatory quality and performance requirements as well as labelling, informational and product registry database requirements.
‘Coordination and Alignment of IEC and ISO Standards for Energy Efficient Electric Motor Driven Systems’ kicked off
The IEC Advisory Committee on Energy Efficiency (ACEE) TG6 launched on 20 September 2019 in Tokyo the project ‘Coordination and Alignment of IEC and ISO Standards for Energy Efficient Electric Motor Driven Systems’ (CAISEMS).
China updated the draft for the crucial GB 18613 “Minimum allowable values of energy efficiency and values of efficiency grade for motors” with the future motor efficiency requirements. The minimum requirement for 3-phase asynchronous motors between 120 W and 1000 kW will be set at IE3. The formal introduction date has not been set.
The European Union published on 25 October 2019 the result of the revision of the Commission Regulation (EC) 640/2009 for electric motors. The new Commission Regulation (EU) 2019/1781 will require minimum requirements for a wider scope of motors (0.12 kW – 1000 kW), will also include 8-pole motors and will abolish the former requirement of an IE2 motor plus a converter instead of IE3. Also, maximum losses for converters between 0.12 kW and 1000 kW at IE2 are requested. From 2023, IE4 will be required for motors between 75 kW and 200 kW.
