A higher efficiency class with a virtually identical motor frame size
One-of-a-kind modular concept
The new IE3 AC motors of the DRN.. series also offer you the gear unit combinations you are used to, while meeting all legal and standard requirements.
Small – compact – light
With optimized weight, dimensions and performance, these asynchronous motors are easy to integrate into machines and systems for energy-efficient operation.
Just switch over starting on January 1, 2015
As of January 1, 2015, all 2, 4, and 6-pole asynchronous motors with a power rating of 7.5 kW or higher that are put on the market in the European Union, Switzerland or Turkey must meet the requirements for efficiency class IE3.
With a few exceptions, asynchronous motors for this power range may not be put on the market unless they meet the energy efficiency requirements. Two years later, on January 1, 2017, the IE3 requirement will come into effect for all asynchronous motors in the power range between 0.75 kW and 375 kW.
