Siemens launches new Simotics standard motors with highest efficiency class

22.12.2014

• New low-voltage motors designed on highest efficiency class technology available
• The IE4 series offers unrivalled degree of efficiency, delivering energy savings and lower Total Cost of Ownership
• Available in cast-iron and aluminium housing with retention of shaft height assignment for versatile planning

Siemens UK and Ireland has taken another step in energy efficiency with the launch of IE4, its new Simotics low-voltage motors based on the highest efficiency class technology currently available, to help UK plants meet stringent energy saving standards.

The IE4 motors are from the Simotics GP and Simotics SD series and offer up to 14 per cent higher efficiency than the IE1 portfolio, enabling users to achieve significant energy savings, as well as reduce associated operation and maintenance costs.

Designed to DIN EN 50347 Standard, the IE4 can easily replace existing IE1, IE2 or IE3 motors. For example, Simotics low voltage IE4 motors are suitable for use in pump, fan and compressor applications, as well as many more industrial applications.

Based on the 1LE1 platform, the highly-efficient IE4 motors are available in aluminium housing (Simotics General Purpose), with a range from 2.2 to 18 kW, as well as cast-iron housing (Simotics Severe Duty) offering a range of 2.2 to 200 kW, with two and four-pole versions available.

The motors can be operated directly on-line or converter fed, which also results in greater flexibility, particularly in retrofit projects. Since the standard output and shaft height assignment have been retained for the IE4 version, it is easy to replace the motors.

Muhammad Haroon at Siemens UK & Ireland, comments: “In view of the increasingly stringent energy saving standards, not only within the EU but globally, the launch of our IE4 series enables industrial plants to equip themselves for the future, while making substantial savings on energy.

The Siemens IE4 range is great for retrofit applications as the shaft height stays the same and offers greater flexibility as it can be used for line operation (DOL) as well as with a variable speed drive. It represents the development of our SIMOTICS 1LE platform and everything about the series, from the housing design to output, has all been designed to deliver the highest levels of efficiency and ease of application.”

Simotics motors are suitable for use in all industries, but particularly in the chemicals, oil and gas, water/wastewater, mining and heating, ventilation and air conditioning sectors. The motors’ asynchronous design constitutes a reliable technology for pump, fan and compressor applications.
While general-purpose motors are appropriate for use in day-to-day applications in standard environmental conditions, the Severe Duty motors with their rugged cast-iron housing fulfill the more demanding requirements found in the paper and printing industry, as well as the chemicals and petrochemicals industry.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
