New energy-saving software tool from Baldor

Baldor has released a powerful new software estimating tool that enables users to evaluate the energy efficiency of electric motors and variable speed drives.

Known as BE$T, the Baldor Energy Savings Tool can be downloaded free from the company's website.

The software analyses the efficiency and annual electricity usage of users' existing motors, and calculates the cost savings that can be achieved by replacing them with equivalent higher efficiency models.

Built-in motor performance and pricing information enables the software to suggest optimum replacements and to estimate the investment payback period.

BE$T will prove especially useful to electrical engineers and maintenance personnel wishing to implement a comprehensive site-wide motor management strategy, or to simply compare the costs of a motor rewind against those of a replacement motor.

The software is also helpful to anyone charged with conducting an energy audit of their company.

Baldor's BE$T program runs on any standard PC and is very easy to use. Data can either be input from the computer's keyboard or imported from a Microsoft Excel file - both methods employ drop-down menus and are backed by extensive built-in help.

The latest version of the software - v3.07 - can be downloaded from: www.baldor.com/support/software_BEST.asp
