The clock is ticking!

The time has come to convert to energy-efficient geared motors

With its strategic foundation, mechatronics and expertise in the area of digitalisation, the Lenze Group is playing an increasingly important role as a system partner for machine automation.

It is already addressing central themes of the future, such as remote and predictive maintenance, digital twins, big data management, cloud and virtual reality.

Business philosophy

Keeping the machine building community fully appraised of how the industry is changing and the ways that this may affect them in the long term is central to Lenze’s business philosophy – nowhere more so than when dealing with the Ecodesign Directive

Also known as the ErP Directive, this imposes new minimum efficiency levels for electric motors and reduces the previous exceptions. This means that, if you sell machines with electric motors within Europe, they must meet the higher energy efficiency requirements from 1 July 2021.

“This represents an opportunity to optimise the energy balance of your machine,” points out Lenze, which states that is ready and waiting to make implementation as easy as possible for those who need expert advice on how to ensure they conform to the directive.

Compliance demands

From 1 July, new requirements for small powers <75 Kw will enter into force. In addition, several exemptions will decline, states the company, which is taking a leading role in helping businesses deal with the many demands around compliance they will be facing.

For an overview on the directive’s upcoming requirements, take a look at Lenze’s ecodesign fact sheet.
