Dept of Energy - Motor Compliance Update

Baldor NameplateSmall Electric Motor regulations will go into effect in the United States on March 9, 2015. This will be the first time these specific motors will be regulated in the world.  

Motor manufacturers will be reviewing their product lines and determining if redesign will be required to bring products up to the required efficiency levels.

Motors covered under these new regulations range from 1/4- to 3hp and include single- and poly phase two-, four- and six-pole general purpose motors in NEMA 42, 48 and 56 frames and corresponding IEC equivalent motors and frames.

We'll keep you posted on updates.

Ask Darryl
RonnieCan a motor lose it's efficiency after rewinding?

YES if your repair center does a "fast burn-out".

NO if you carefully manage the oven burn-out procedure.


The following 3 issues are critically important:

  1. Control the oven temperature below NEMA standards. Increasing the temperature to give you a fast burn-out can kill motor efficiency.
  2. Control flame-outs. Use a modern oven with water vapor suppression to avoid runaway combustion.
  3. Control the time span. By programming the temperature rise and cool down, you avoid stator warpage
Motor efficiency measures energy loss. Energy loss means that you are wasting money by using a motor, which is no longer working at its peak performance. So it's really important to get a good rewind and a quality repair.
