April 28, 2011 - NORD Drivesystems issues its new M7000 electric motor catalog. The print version can be ordered online and the electronic version is available for download. The catalog provides an overview of asynchronous low-voltage motors manufactured by NORD. It addresses in detail the implications of the switch to IE2.

A brief reminder: efficiency requirements for electric motors are being introduced worldwide under the IEC Directive – the first round of regulations for the EU market comes into effect on June 16th, 2011, and for many applications, only motors that provide at least IE2 efficiency can be offered from this date. The catalog lists the efficiency requirements in different markets and, organized by target regions, provides easy access to the choice of the right motor. It contains the technical data of NORD’s IE1 and IE2 motors along with a table comparing motor characteristics and type plate illustrations for complete clarity. IE2 motors from NORD Drivesystems provide at least the efficiency required by ErP 2009/125/EG V0640-2009. In implementing the new eco-design requirements, NORD has retained the motor sizes to a great extent, thereby facilitating replacements. Moreover, since the motors have a superior energy balance than IE1/standard motors, smaller units can be used in some applications. As in the past, the motors are suitable for 50 Hz and 60 Hz operation. NORD has also maintained the suitability for a wide voltage range, ensuring unproblematic operation worldwide.
