With the constant rise in energy costs paying attention to energy consumption is becoming increasingly important. It is at this very point that potentials for minimization must be fully explored to ensure competitiveness not only today, but in future. The environment likewise benefits from reduced energy consumption. A full 95 percent of a motor’s life-cycle-costs can be ascribed to energy costs - only maximally 5 percent of the costs accrue to acquisition and installation.
The rate of amortization of highly efficient motors can be calculated with the Siemens energy-saving calculator: www.industry.siemens.com/drives/global/en/motor/low-voltage-motor/energy-savings-calculator
You will find the regulations regarding the import of minimum energy efficiency requirements for low voltage motors in the European economic area under: www.industry.siemens.com/drives/global/en/motor/low-voltage-motor/efficiency-standards
The motors are suited for converter operations and so have significant further savings potentials.
