New Motor Standards Are Broader, Not Deeper

After years of increasing standards for motor efficiency across a relatively narrow range of motor styles and sizes, a critical point in diminishing returns has been reached. Recognizing this fact, rather than coming up with a very expensive incremental change, manufacturers and advocates agreed to broaden the scope of motors covered by the existing standards.

Industrial Motor Efficiency Will Benefit from Consumer Side

As the share of motors in non-industrial applications continues to soar, that growth will drive features and control strategies that will benefit industrial applications. Nothing drives innovation like volume and there is no volume like consumer applications. As the number of motors in cars and a wide variety of other products zooms, so too will innovative control hardware, software and strategies. Out of it will come a host of evolving designs, new features and certainly energy efficiency benefits which industrial applications will surely be able to utilize.

Process Efficiency

Motor Efficiency Dependent on Industrial Factors

Machine drives, which are primarily electric motors, pumps, and fans, account for about half of the manufacturing sector’s delivered electricity use and 8% of the sector’s total fuel consumption. Their wide use across many industries results in a substantial impact of electric motors efficiency on the demand placed on power grids.

New Design Promises Double the Torque for the Same Energy

Industrial motors may not be the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of a 21st-century entrepreneur tinkering in his garage. Anthony Wong didn’t even have a garage; he only had an extra bedroom.
