ICS Code (Rotating machinery): 29.160
scope:

This part of IEC 60034 specifies efficiency classes for single-speed electric motors that are rated according to IEC 60034-1 or IEC 60079-0, are rated for operation on a sinusoidal voltage supply and:

• have a rated power PN from 0,12 kW to 1 000 kW;

• have a rated voltage UN above 50 V up to 1 kV;

• have 2, 4, 6 or 8 poles;

• are capable of continuous operation at their rated power with a temperature rise within the specified insulation temperature class;

NOTE 1 Most motors covered by this standard are rated for duty type S1 (continuous duty). However, some motors that are rated for other duty cycles are still capable of continuous operation at their rated power and these motors are also covered.

• are marked with any ambient temperature within the range of -20 °C to + 60 °C;

NOTE 2 The rated efficiency and efficiency classes are based on 25 °C ambient temperature according to IEC 60034-2-1.

NOTE 3 Motors rated for temperatures outside the range - 20 °C and + 60 °C are considered to be of special construction and are consequently excluded from this standard.

NOTE 4 Smoke extraction motors with a temperature class of up to and including 400 °C are covered by this standard.

• are marked with an altitude up to 4 000 m above sea level.

NOTE 5 The rated efficiency and efficiency class are based on a rating for altitudes up to 1 000 m above sea level.

This standard establishes a set of limit efficiency values based on frequency, number of poles and motor power. No distinction is made between motor technologies, supply voltage or motors with increased insulation designed specifically for converter operation even though these motor technologies may not all be capable of reaching the higher efficiency classes (see Table 1). This makes different motor technologies fully comparable with respect to their energy efficiency potential.

NOTE 6 Regulators should consider the above constraints when assigning national minimum energy-efficiency performance standards (MEPS) with respect to any particular type of motor.

The efficiency of power-drive systems is not covered by this standard. In particular, motor losses due to harmonic content of the supply voltage, losses in cables, filters and frequency-converters, are not covered.

Motors with flanges, feet and/or shafts with mechanical dimensions different from IEC 60072-1 are covered by this standard.

Geared motors are covered by this standard including those incorporating non-standard shafts and flanges.
