Motor protection for the IE3 revolution
Eaton has published a new white paper “Motor protection for the IE3 revolution” that discusses the impact of the Energy-related Products (ErP) directive on switchgear and protection systems for electric motors. Authored by Eaton product manager Jan Nowak, the white paper offers machine and system builders an insight into the repercussions of the directive on motor design as well as practical advice on what users should keep in mind when selecting protective devices.
Nowak explains: “Manufacturers of electric motors are now introducing products with increasingly higher energy efficiency levels, which is only right and proper. However, it’s important to remember that this has an impact on the design of these motors and the protection systems used for them.”
Eaton’s white paper looks in detail at the impact on switching and protection devices. It provides guidance on choosing the right equipment to meet the needs of specific applications, as well as the requirements of the directive.
