Demag goes green with new rotor motor

Demag Cranes and Components, a market leader in the crane component field, has
further expanded its range with new ZBE/ZNE cylindrical-rotor motor.

Demag has added a drive to its product range that meets the requirements of efficiency class IE2 (High Efficiency), which applies all over the world.

From June 16 this year, the EuP Directive (EuP = Energy using Products) specifies that only low-voltage AC motors with an output of between 0.75 and 375kw may be placed on the market if they correspond at least to efficiency class IE2 (IE = International Efficiency) when covered by the Directive. This rule is based on targets agreed to protect the climate and to cut CO2 emissions.

New Demag motors meet the requirements of the new international standard defined in IEC 60034-30:2008.

These energy-saving motors make it possible to save costs and, at the same time, to reduce the burden on the environment.

Units are designed to be used as drives for duty factors of up to 100 per cent at ambient temperatures of up to 40°C and at altitudes of up to 1000m above sea level.

They are suitable for operation in continuous roller conveyors for uninterrupted materials handling as well as for long-term applications, such as for driving pumps, fans or compressors. The motors can be connected direct to mains supply or operated with frequency inverters.

Thanks to their efficiency, which is up to five per cent higher, the new Demag motors require less primary energy for the same mechanical shaft output in nominal operation.

Consequently the operating costs are also reduced, which results in a higher return on investment.
