Energy-efficient thinking: Scherzinger adapts early on to the new norm for energy-efficient motors
The new motor norm IEC 60034-30 will come into effect June 16, 2011 for low voltage three-phase current motors. The pump manufacturer Ernst Scherzinger GmbH & Co. KG ensures the energy-efficient application of Gear Pumps by using energy-efficient motors conform to norm IEC 60034-30.
Up until now low voltage three-phase current motors were worldwide classified into different norms. Therefore an uniform standard didn't exist. The International Electronical Commission (IEC) has defined a new efficiency class for motors (Norm IEC 60034-30) and has therefore achieved a standardized classification. The new norm concerns motors with a nominal output of 0.75 to 375 kW as well as single-phase, three-phase 50 Hz and 60 Hz motors.
Scherzinger has early on adapted to the new norm and supplies the most common pumps with new energy-efficient motors. The company located in Furtwangen demonstrates energy-efficient thinking by adapting motor pumps starting with 0.18 kW - the customer therefore has a higher cost saving potential.
Conform to the new norm all motors will either be designed for 50 Hz or 60 operation, a dual function will not be possible anymore in the future. "We advise and support our customers during this major adaption phase - the pump choice and design has to be modified in a few cases" explains Thomas King, Sales Manager of Scherzinger. This is further step towards a higher energy saving concept which will establish the Gear Pump as one of the most energy-efficient pumps concepts on the market.
