Electric AC Motor in Singapore
Effective from October 2018, all motors sold in Singapore must be registered with the National Environment Agency (NEA) and should meet the minimum International Energy Efficiency class 3 (IE3). This new requirement aligns with the international standards aimed at driving high energy efficiency of electric motors supplied and used in residential and industrial facilities in Singapore.
Extensively used in both domestic and industrial levels, an induction motor or asynchronous motor is used to serve various purposes such as to prevent explosive hazards or the coupling with pressure cleaners. Classified according to their efficiency level pertaining to those set under the Minimum Energy Performance Standard (MEPS) mandate, there are 4 motor categories: IE1, IE2, IE3, and IE4.
Advantages of IE3 Motors in Singapore
Different from standard motors, high-efficiency motors have improvements in their motor design. An AC electric motor has an electric current in the rotor that produces torque obtained by electromagnetic induction from the magnetic field of the stator winding. An induction motor can therefore be made without electrical connections to the rotor, reducing stator and rotor resistances. An induction motor's rotor can also be either wound type or squirrel-cage type.
Lying within the Premium Efficiency range, the IE3 motors engineered with advanced technologies reduce motor loss by up to 40% and extends bearing operation life by 2.5 times as compared to standard motors. From revolutionary design to the incorporation of coil insulation, adopting high efficiency motors reduces overall operational costs.
