Electric motor knowledge
Energy efficiency standard for electric motors, Ecodesign requirements
The Ecodesign directive regulates requirements for energy efficiency of electric motors. According to the above standards, the new classes have the designations IE1, IE2, IE3 where the IE3 have the highest efficiency.
General technical information on electric motors
Many factors that influence the selection of an electric motor and its options for different applications. Here you can learn more about, for example, voltages, balancing, motor protection, thermal contacts, thermistors, cooling, standby heaters, insulation class, different types of operation, protection class and norms.
Maintenance of electric motors
In normal operating environments, maintenance of electric motors is limited to lubrication of the bearings. In abnormal environments, such as high ambient temperature, all bearings should be checked and lubricated regularly.
Recycling of electric motors
Most often, it is an advantage to renovate large electric motors. Otherwise, the material in motors can be recycled to a very high extent. Material recycling saves both natural resources and energy and is more environmentally friendly.
Selecting the correct worm gear
Factors to consider when choosing the right gear for a given application.
Lubrication and maintenance of a worm gear
Worm gear units normally do not need service or replenishment of oil. If the gearbox is taken out of service for an extended period of time in a humid environment, we advice that it is filled completely with oil.
