WEG's WIMES compliant motors meet future energy efficiency regulations
28 June 2011
WEG's new WIMES compliant W22 line of motors is available in two versions, both backed by a 3-year warranty, and both designed to exceed the requirements of the new IE2 (High) and IE3 (Premium) efficiency classes. Importantly, the IE3 Premium Efficiency versions of the motors are available now, in standard IEC frame sizes, well in advance of the next phase of the Energy using Products (EuP) Motor Regulations due for implementation in 2015/2017.
The motors have dual voltage space heaters (110V/230V) terminated inside a separate space heater terminal box as standard equipment. They also include three PTC thermistors for over temperature protection (WIMES prohibits retrofitting thermistors after manufacture), and have insulated end-shields at the motor NDE from frame sizes 280 and above.
Also included in the standard motor package are relubrication nipples for the bearings on frame sizes 160 and above, excellent levels of environmental protection provided by WEG’s patented WSeal and the W22 WIMES motor’s standard heavy duty 2-pack epoxy paint finish.
Launched in power ratings from 0.75kW to 375kW, in 2, 4 and 6-pole configurations (with lower outputs/higher polarity options also available), the WIMES W22 range is designed to lower total operational costs across the lifetime of the motors, maximising value and minimising whole life costs for the user.
The motors achieve these benefits by providing guaranteed energy savings, higher levels of productivity, and by delivering extended lifetime operation with minimum maintenance, thanks to a design that minimises heat build-up, vibration - and noise.
