It still seems to be a little known fact in industry how much money motor users can save by upgrading to higher efficiency models.
One of our customers was notified of a dramatic increase in the company's electricity bill and turned to Westin Drives for advice on where to save energy.
Starting with long running, larger machines, three 90kW motors were picked out as prime candidates.
It was worked out using WEG’s online calculator that upgrading to IE4 motors would create an annual saving of around 21,000kWh of energy, per motor, equating to a 1.4 year payback on investment.
