WAUNAKEE, WISCONSIN, U.S. — NORD Drivesystems said on Sept. 15 its equipment is prepared to meet the new European standard that expands energy efficiency requirements to the entire motor and AC drive system.

The new EN 50598 provides a method to determine a numeric value for wasted energy. This new European standard will be adapted to the international standard IEC 61800-9 later this year.

NORD Drivesystems’ energy and premium efficient motors paired with a NORD AC Vector Drive already meet the highest level of the new power loss regulation, IES2, NORD said.

NORD is a partner in energy conservation and savings and has always taken a comprehensive approach that considers the entire gear motor and its components, providing a very low power loss system, the company said.
