  • EPACT & Energy Efficient Electric Motors
    Today is truly an exciting and challenging time for specifiers, buyers, users and manufacturers of industrial electric motors. It is a time of change in the motor industry rivaled, in recent times, only by the introduction of re-rated "T" frame motors in the 1960s. But there is a difference between
  • The Next Generation of US Energy Efficiency Motor Regulations
    The U.S. efficiency regulations for industrial electric motors have been in place since October 1997 when the Energy Policy Act of 1992 (EPAct 92) set minimum efficiency levels for 1- through 200-horsepower (HP), general purpose three-phase motors. EPAct 92 was upgraded when the Energy Independence
  • Improving Energy Efficiency in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Operations Part I: Motors, Drives and Compressed Air Systems
    for an Energy-Efficient Economy, Washington, D.C., 1997. United States Industrial Electric Motor Systems Market Opportunities Assessment, prepared by Xenergy, Inc. for the U.S. Dept. of Energy s Office of Industrial Technology and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Burlington, Mass., 1998. Motors and Drives
  • Industrial Three Phrase Electric Actuators
    In an industrial environment with three phase power readily available, there are several reasons three phase power just. makes good sense. The main reason to use a three phase motor is that it runs more efficiently than a comparably sized single phase motor. This translates to the motor running
  • Why Three Phase Induction Motors Are Popular for Industrial Applications
    Three phase induction motors have been a popular choice for many industrial applications for a number of reasons: *Non-complex construction - they don't require permanent magnets, brushes or windings on the rotor. *They run directly off of the electric distribution grid. *Low cost. *Rugged
  • Electric Power Measurements on Three-Phase Motors
    Three-phase topology has become the norm of all industrial motors due to the operational and economic benefits they possess. The most notable advantage of a three-phase motor is its ability to start automatically without needing additional windings. Furthermore, in a three-phase system the amount
  • The Impact of the IoT on Society - How Smart Alerts and Sensors Add Value to Electric Motors
    This blog is the fourth of a five-part series that looks at the impact of the Internet of Things (IoT) on society. I'm often asked about the value of the IoT - sometimes directly, but often indirectly, as in "How can a deluge of data create value?" Let's look at an example of electric motors
  • Industrial IoT: How Smart Alerts and Sensors Add Value to Electric Motors
    This blog is the fourth of a five-part series that looks at the impact of the Internet of Things (IoT) on society.
  • Three Phase Induction Motor: Explained
    An electric motor takes electrical energy as input and transforms it into rotational mechanical energy that is delivered at the output. Motors may either by AC or DC, and can further be split into synchronous, single-phase, three-phase, induction and special purpose motors. Out of all types
  • PRACTICAL PERSPECTIVES ON MOTOR SYSTEMS EFFICIENCY
    The Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) has reshaped the motor landscape, prompting industrial users to. reconsider the repair/replace decision, along with many other historical practices related to electric motors. Despite. purchase costs of up to 35% higher than standard-efficiency motors
