On December 28, 2016, the Amendment 13 of the Canadian energy efficiency legislation was published and will take effect on June 28, 2017. After June 28, 2017, motors manufactured after June 1, 2016, which are imported into Canada or are shipped between provinces, must comply with the Amendment 13 regulations. For motors sold within provinces, provincial efficiency legislation will apply.
The Amendment 13 will align the Canadian legislation with the US (DOE) standards that came into effect in the USA on June 1, 2016. Also, since January 1, 2017, the third stage of the European regulation EC no. 640/2009 is in effect, requiring that motors for line operation, must meet the IE3 efficiency level.
INTRODUCING THE NEW DRN MOTOR
In general, asynchronous motors, 2-, 4-, 6- and 8-pole, single speed, with a power rating from 1 to 500 HP (0.75 to 375 kW) must meet the efficiency requirements according to NEMA MG1 Table 12-12 and IEC energy efficiency class IE3. The DRN motor meets the new Canadian, US and European energy efficiency regulations.
