IE3-compliant motors promote energy efficiency



SEW-Eurodrive South Africa showcased its IE3-compliant DRN series of asynchronous motors at bauma CONEXPO Africa 2018. The range has set a new benchmark in the local electric-motor industry in terms of energy efficiency. Stricter international regulations have meant that all two-, four- and six-pole asynchronous motors with a power rating of 7,5 to 375 kW must meet the requirements of energy-efficiency class IE3 in the European Union (EU). While South Africa does not face the same regulatory pressure as the EU, SEW-Eurodrive has decided to raise the benchmark locally by launching its new DRN series as its standard range of electric motors. The company also has to take into account customers across our borders. For example, if SEW-Eurodrive supplies an OEM in Africa carrying out a project in the US, the IE3 requirement has to be met. The company not only supplies the local market, but has to take export obligations into account as well. SEW-Eurodrive offers the DRN series as a complete range.
