Overseas High Efficiency Regulations Compliant Motors

Three-phase Induction Motors
  • Motor for EU
  • Motor for China
  • Motor for USA/Canada

Global Trend and Lineup

There has been an accelerating trend to suppress the usage of carbon dioxide (CO2) generating energy sources as a means of preventing worldwide global warming. Against this backdrop, a great change has occurred in the environment surrounding 3-phase induction motors (hereinafter "motors") since they occupy approximately 40 to 50% of the world's energy consumption. There is currently a rapid move taking place in many countries toward the adoption of regulation-compliant high-efficiency motors that meet national standards such as MEPS*.
