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: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
